It’s a scorcher out there! And here too, with a hot new Must List.

We’ve got brilliant comedy on All4, another round of mystery with Baptiste, a docuseries about everyone’s favourite sports star, and a lovely tribute to a comedy king. Plus, there’s a nightmarish version of couples counselling over on Apple TV+. 

2 Seasons All4 12 x 25 mins
Looking for a new show with lots of laughs, musings on mental health and an utterly relatable bond between sisters? No, we’re not here to tell you to rewatch Fleabag, we’re here to let you know about this brilliantly hilarious series from Aisling Bea, which is back.
Score: 7.9
2 Seasons BBC iPlayer 12 x 60 mins
It seems as though every winter there is one big drama that becomes the runaway hit of that year, becoming the most talked about telly at the school gates... now we’re asking you to cast your mind back to 2014 – the year of The Missing.
Score: 7.4
1 Season Netflix 3 x 40 mins
As we know from very recent history, there’s nothing like a big sporting event to cause a societal stir. And whilst tennis isn’t quite as rowdy as recent football matches have proved to be, nobody can deny the gravity of Naomi Osaka’s win against Serena Williams at the 2018 US Open.
Score: 7.8
1 Season Apple TV+ 6 x 30 mins
Say it with us: me me me, ma ma ma, my my my. Great, now your vocal chords are all warmed up, ready for this all singing all dancing (rather weird) musical show from Apple TV+. Curtains up! It’s show time.
Score: 5.6
