CATCH-UP TV

DRAMA

AP­PRO­PRI­ATE ADULT

HHHH Emily Wat­son and Do­minic West star in ITV’S once con­tro­ver­sial drama about the se­rial killer Fred West, with Wat­son play­ing a vol­un­teer who lis­tens to his con­fes­sions. Both ac­tors re­ceived Bafta Awards for this two-parter, and de­servedly so.

THE BLOOD PACT

HHH

One for fans of the glossier end of sub­ti­tled Euro­dra­mas, The Blood Pact is a Dutch se­ries about the fall­out when a tax of­fi­cial be­comes pals with a crim­i­nal. Sea­son one is al­ready up, and two ar­rives on Fri­day.

COM­EDY

BBC IPLAYER HHHH

The whole sec­ond se­ries of this joy­fully silly com­edy from the Hor­ri­ble His­to­ries gang is avail­able on iplayer, along with the first. In episode one, Ali­son hits on a way of earn­ing money from her haunted house.

GHOSTS LOVE LIFE

HHHH

The box set of this sweet US rom­com, which picks apart a dif­fer­ent re­la­tion­ship of its main char­ac­ter in ev­ery episode (‘from first love to last­ing love’). In sea­son one, it’s New Yorker Darby (Anna Ken­drick). From Wed­nes­day.

NET­FLIX

DOC­U­MEN­TARY

STEP INTO THE RING

THE WRITE OFFS

ALL4 HHHH

The Great Bri­tish Bake Off re­turned last week, but sadly with­out Sandi Toksvig, who was al­ways such a lovely pres­ence in­side the tent. On the plus side, Sandi can still be seen on our TVS – in both QI and this up­lift­ing two-part doc­u­men­tary, in which she helps a di­verse group of adults who never learned to read or write. It’s hard to imag­ine the dif­fer­ence that could make to their lives.

DRAMA

Sky’s sim­mer­ing re­venge thriller feels like a west­ern. Our hero – or an­ti­hero – is an al­co­holic

Lon­don de­tec­tive who’s moved his fam­ily to a town in the Canadian Rock­ies, and is played by a charis­matic

Tim Roth. A third and fi­nal sea­son, based in Liver­pool, is com­ing this Novem­ber.

COM­EDY PICK OF THE WEEK US

HH­HHH

In an in­sight­ful and funny drama based on the novel by David Ni­cholls (One Day), Tom Hol­lan­der

(far left) and Saskia Reeves play a cou­ple who split up just as they’re about to tour Europe with their son.

TIN STAR MOONE BOY

(All three sea­sons) HHHH

Chris O’dowd’s semi-au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal boy­hood com­edy – set in 1980s Ire­land, with O’dowd as an imag­i­nary friend – is a warm and quirk­ily funny show.

LAST CHANCE RESTREPO: OUT­POST AFGHANISTA­N

HH­HHH Front­line ac­count of life at a re­mote US out­post in Afghanista­n’s Ko­ran­gal Val­ley, where the Tal­iban are never far away. Un­til Tues­day.

TESLA TINY WORLD

Paul Rudd is the friendly nar­ra­tor of a lovely wildlife se­ries with a jaunty sound­track rem­i­nis­cent of a 1960s French com­edy. It cel­e­brates the power of tiny crea­tures such as the ele­phant shrew, the dwarf mon­goose and the la­dy­bird (left). From Fri­day.

MOVIE ON­WARD
