We just finished this four-part BBC series and thought it was both brilliant and unbearable in equal measure. I recommend it with some trepidation as it won’t be for everyone — the pace and tension are so excruciating as to be almost unbearable. But there’s also a lot of humanity in there and we found it worth sticking with. And it has Sean Bean, so there’s that too.

With all the talk of Thirteen Lives recently (about the Thai boys that got trapped in the cave), I was surprised that a lot of folk I’ve spoken to hadn’t seen The Rescue on Netflix. It’s an incredible documentary on the same subject by Free Solo directors, Jimmy Chin and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi.

We've just finished this brilliant series on Apple TV+, based on the real life case of Larry Hall. Taron Egerton plays a drug dealer who is offered the chance to clear his sentence by the FBI if he can elicit a confession from a known serial killer before his appeal comes up.

My wife and I recently went to see Brian & Charles having no context beforehand on what we'd be watching.
