Big Little Lies season 1, available to buy on the Virgin Media Store for £9.99 from Monday 10 June to Sunday 16 June

Twists, turns, an A-list cast, and even more twists – Big Little Lies has got the lot. But don’t just take our word for it. A winner of multiple Golden Globes, Emmys, Screen Actors Guild awards and Critics’ Choice awards, this darkly comic drama can be filed under Absolutely, Positively, Irrefutably Unmissable.


And with the whole first season available to buy now on the Virgin Media Store, we think it’s time you found out why critics and fans alike have been clambering over each other to sing its praises.

With a cast so blindingly good it should come with a health warning (Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Alexander Skarsgård and Laura Dern), this seven-episode series is sure to have you gripped from start to jaw-dropping finish. When Madeline (Witherspoon) and Celeste (Kidman) welcome single mom Jane (Woodley) into their idyllic California world, things soon take a dark turn. Their blissful, sun-kissed lives are about to unravel dramatically, because deceit, scandal and (gasp!) murder are afoot.


A deliciously devilish study of status, perfection and small-town neuroses, Big Little Lies is one of those dramas where watching one episode simply isn’t enough. You’ll feel compelled to devour it whole. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
