My Mum, Your Dad
Series 1 available now on ITVX
Davina McCall’s matchmaking show for single parents was praised for its relatability and will have you hooked. It’s an emotional dating series in which grown-up children help their parents take a second shot at love, with the singletons heading off to a countryside retreat in the hope of finding “the one”. But there’s a twist – the children are secretly watching their parents’ romantic rendezvous and influencing events. Talk about putting the “aw” in awkward!
Available from October on ITVX
To quote former Big Brother host Davina McCall, it turns out that we did, after all, “fancy another one”. Now in a new home on ITV and ITVX, the hotly anticipated reboot of the televised reality show will be reinvigorated with fresh formats and hosts AJ Odudu (The Big Blow Out) and Will Best (Dance Dance Dance). Of course, it’ll still be drawing on the familiar elements we love from this famous social experiment, such as Marcus Bentley’s hilariously dry voiceovers and – fingers crossed – plenty of flirting and bickering among the housemates.
Series 1-2 available now on ITVX
Gemma Whelan (Killing Eve), Jimmy Akingbola (Bel-Air) and Emmett J Scanlan (Peaky Blinders) star in this gripping crime series that’s received rave reviews. Inspired by Kate London’s Metropolitan trilogy of novels, the drama opens with DS Sarah Collins (Whelan) investigating the mysterious deaths of a long-serving police officer and a teenager. When one of the only witnesses, Constable Lizzie Adama (Tahirah Sharif, A Town Called Malice) disappears shortly after, Collins’ investigation leads her to the dark heart of policing.
Series 1 available this autumn on ITVX
Based on a true story and set against the backdrop of the 1980s, there’s a lot of buzz surrounding this six-part drama – thanks in no small part to the beguiling appearance of Sophie Turner (X-Men: Dark Phoenix). As Joan Hannington, a notorious jewel thief and fiercely protective single mother, Turner conveys her character’s glamorous charm as well as her quiet desperation. And while the series perfectly captures the cultural shifts of the era, we’ll also be watching for the colourful fashions.
Series 1 available now on ITVX
Sink your teeth into this laugh-out-loud comedy that gives a modern twist to the centuries-old vampire trope. The series follows Abdulla Khan (Arian Nik, The Bay) – a young British-Pakistani Muslim doctor – who’s trying to figure out his identity somewhere between his religious family and hedonistic friends. And to make things even more confusing, he’s bitten by a halal-hunting vampire (Jaime Winstone, Four Lives). Smashing! Nina Wadia (The Outlaws), Manpreet Bambra (Funny Woman) and Sia Alipour (The Sandman) also star.
Series 1-3 available now on ITVX
There’s never a bad time to curl up on the sofa with a good costume drama, and ITVX is spoiling us with three series of Sanditon, a reimagining of Jane Austen’s unfinished novel. All the hallmarks of a wonderful Regency-era narrative are here, from grand parties and formal dances to failed engagements, slowly simmering romances and loyal friendships tested. Plus there’s a cast of sparkling young ingenues, including Rose Williams (Reign) and Crystal Clarke (Empire Of Light) along with familiar faces such as Death In Paradise’s Kris Marshall.
Love & Death
Series 1 available now on ITVX
In 1980, Candy Montgomery, a Methodist woman living in a small town, killed her lover’s wife with an axe. After claiming self-defence she was, to most people’s surprise, acquitted of murder. This is the dark tale that’s spun over seven episodes of Love & Death, with Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch in the Marvel’s Avengers movies) stunning audiences with her performance as the church-going mom stifled – and then slowly driven to extremes – by the confines of her domestic duties and suburbia.
Irvine Welsh’s Crime
Series 1 available now in ITVX. Series 2 available from Thursday 21 September
Dougray Scott won an International Emmy for his performance in this gritty detective tale. Scott (Snatch) and Joanna Vanderham (Warrior) star as DI Ray Lennox and his rookie partner DS Amanda Drummond, tasked with finding a missing schoolgirl who has been abducted in Edinburgh. Things soon take a turn for the worse and Lennox must confront his past trauma and personal demons in order to catch a killer. The excellent cast also includes Ken Stott (Rebus), Jamie Sives (Annika), Michael Abubakar (Motherland) and Angela Griffin (Waterloo Road).
