TV we are loving right now - March 2021
With the prospect of being in the house a little longer here in the UK and the bad weather forecast over the next few days. We thought we would share some of our favourite TV series currently to keep you occupied at home.
There's a few new ones you should definitely watch and some 'retro' gems
Bridgerton - Netflix
If you haven't watched this yet, where have you been? It's quite addictive, a mix of Gossip Girl, Downton Abbey with a bit of Sex and the City thrown in. Its narrated by acting royalty Julie Andrews, there are a few classic English actors you will spot and so many handsome men to drool over. Unfortunately, its over too soon.
We follow the Bridgerton family at the start of a new social season, meeting their extravagant neighbours and following Daphne Bridgerton trying to attempting to find love.
Dawsons Creek - Netflix
This one is one for memory lane, its full of flip phones, 90s films, hot summers, boating, flings and teen angst.
Four friends navigate school life, family problems, relationships and growing up.
Virgin River - Netflix
We can't decide what is so addictive about this one, but are just finishing the second season and still watching it.
A young widow relocates to a remote Northern California town, for a job at the one doctors office in town. Her new boss hates her, the accommodation is falling down, but she finds a nice little bar to drown her sorrows.
Line of Duty - BBC1
The new series starts 21st March, so if you haven't ever see it you have time to catch up. Its a gripping whodunit, expect the unexpected and to be screaming at the TV.
A police anti-corruption team AC-12 try to pick apart and go undercover investigating corrupt police officers and deep rooted connections to organised crime groups.
A Discovery of Witches - Sky One
Based on the gripping All Souls book trilogy by Deborah Harkness
A historian discovers a bewitched manuscript, and is forced back into the magical world that she had been avoiding. With witches, daemons and vampires now following her around Oxford, she forms an unlikely alliance with a mysterious vampire.
The Great Pottery Throwdown - Channel 4
Okay, this one is a little late in series! Its the final this weekend!
A group of UK based amateur potters, move to Stoke-on-Trent to take part in one of the messiest competitions. They make sinks to garden water features and Dolly Parton busts.
ER - Available on 4OD
Another 'retro' one for your list, which was so many great actors launch pad for their careers. Look out for a young George Clooney, Shane West, Kat Dennings and Thandie Newton
A medical drama following a group of doctors and nurses, in a Chicago hospital. We follow John Carter on the first day of the job, plus the consultants and nurses dealing with the different patients walking through the door.
