Wednesday. Netflix.

WEDNESDAY, the Netflix series from the imagination of Tim Burton. Starring Jenna Ortega in the title role, alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzman, Gwendoline Christie, Christina Ricci it’s a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy.

It’s written by Tim Burton so it was always going to be brilliant. It doesn’t disappoint and even better there is going to be a second series.

Karen Pirie. ITV.

Lauren Lyle stars as Karen Pirie in ITV cold case murder drama, based on acclaimed author Val McDermid’s The Distant Echo and adapted by Emer Kenny.

When teenager Rosie Duff (Anna Russell-Martin, Casualty) was found brutally murdered in the Scottish university town of St Andrews in 1996, suspicion fell on the three drunken students who were discovered at the scene of the crime, claiming to have found her body.

This was absolutely brilliant- five stars- and being that Val McDermid has written a series of books about the young Scottish detective, we can hopefully look forward to series two.

Mum. BBC.

Mum is a British sitcom written by Stefan Golaszewski (Marriage) centred around recently widowed, suburban 59-year-old Cathy and her family, following her husband’s death. Each episode is named after a calendar month in the year, except series three which is set over just one week.

Starring Lesley Manville and Peter Mullan. I watched this on the back of Stefan Golaszewski’s Marriage (Nicola Walker). Similar format- the comedy/ drama is in the minutia of everyday life, cleverly delivered.

I will be looking for more of this writer’s work.

Crossfire. BBC.

‘A holiday turns from heaven to hell with a gunshot – and the consequences will linger long after the final bullets are fired.’

Written by Louise Doughty and starring Keeley Hawes.

What would you do if it happened to you? (Louise Doughty)

Binged the three episodes of this last night. Reading the reviews, the ending has divided its audience. Gripping and fast moving. I liked it.

Marriage- BBC.

‘Funny, moving, revealing – the bittersweet reality of a long-term relationship. Sean Bean and Nicola Walker star in an intimate slice of life …’

Dividing viewers- boring or brilliant? I thought it was brilliant- a portrayal of real life; as it is. Because let’s face it none of our live are as action packed as the dramas we are all watching on TV. It might not provide thrilling viewing, but it did affirm and mirror the mundanity of day to day living that I’m sure we could all identify with some aspect of.

The Split. BBC.

A British legal drama television series, written and created by Abi Morgan, starring Nicola Walker, Stephen Mangan, Fiona Button, Annabel Scholey and Deborah Findlay. A powerful drama about power- girl power, the power struggle within families and the power, both positive and negative of family lawyers. It’s well worth binging on.
