Counterpart

9pm, Thursday 24 January, Channel 100

JK Simmons (Whiplash) is brilliant in everything, and sci-fi thriller Counterpart is no exception. Here he plays a UN employee who uncovers a gateway to a parallel Earth that’s at war with his own – and where his “other” self is a top spy. Gripping, tense and utterly absorbing, Counterpart is simply unmissable – no matter which parallel world you belong to.
 

Mr. Mercedes

Based on the crime novel trilogy of the same name by Stephen King, this series follows retired detective Bill Hodges (Brendan Gleeson, the Harry Potter series) who is haunted by an unsolved crime. When the psychopath known as Mr Mercedes resurfaces, Hodges soon discovers the criminal he’s chasing will stop at nothing to leave his mark on the world.

When New York newbie Tess (Ella Purnell, Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children) bags a job at a top restaurant, she’s soon introduced to a chaotic life of liquor, lust and love. Based on the book by Stephanie Danler, it’s partly inspired by the author’s own experience as a waitress in NYC over a seven-year period, and it’s a coming-of-age story like no other.
