For fans of: Rosewood, The Messengers
Dive deep into the brain of Kirsten Clark (Emma Ishta), a gifted young computer scientist, in this mind-bending science-fiction crime drama. Hired by a secretive government agency as a “stitcher” – someone who can enter the memories of the deceased – she taps into her considerable grey matter to investigate a series of murders alongside her partner in crime-solving, neurosurgeon Cameron Goodkin (Kyle Harris).
Find Derry Girls series 2 from Monday 20 May in On Demand > Box Sets
For fans of: London Irish, Catastrophe
Set in 1990s Northern Ireland during The Troubles, this hugely popular comedy focuses on a group of Catholic school-attending teens as they navigate life amid a backdrop of armoured vehicles and army checkpoints, as well as the usual pitfalls of pre-adult life. Derry Girls is the brainchild of London Irish creator Lisa McGee, who’s pulled off another comedy masterstroke with series 2, even persuading Father Ted star Ardal O’Hanlon to make a cameo appearance.
Find Ackley Bridge series 2 from Tuesday 14 May in On Demand > Box Sets
For fans of: Waterloo Road, Teachers
Ackley Bridge tells the story of two schools in a racially divided community that are merged due to budget cuts. It’s been praised for its handling of sensitive, timely issues and tack-sharp sense of humour, and boasts a stellar cast comprised largely of relative newcomers. One of its stars, 24-year-old Poppy Lee Friar, picked up the best actress gong at last year’s Royal Television Society Awards for her performance as Missy Booth.
Inside Amy Schumer
For fans of: The Sarah Silverman Programme, Fleabag
While the title might have you thinking you know what to expect, Inside Amy Schumer is anything but predictable. Split into segments of stand-up, sketches and even interviews with random people on the street, it certainly subscribes to the theory that variety is the spice of life! In fact, the only common theme running through the show is that Amy stars in every scene. It also features a number of special guests, including a ferret-wielding Jake Gyllenhaal!
Catfish: The TV Show
For fans of: 16 And Pregnant
Based on the 2010 film Catfish, the spin-off TV show has been hugely popular since it first aired in 2012. As with the movie, it focuses on individuals who create fake online profiles in an attempt to trick others to fall in love with them. The idea for the film was originally created when co-host Nev Schulman was himself “catfished”. According to Schulman, the aim of the show isn’t to make the people they catch look bad, but to know “why they are doing it, who they are, what they are feeling, what led them to this place”. A cracking watch.
