The End of the Fing World
With the second season airing recently on Channel 4 (reaching Netflix at a later date), now is a good time to catch up on the first series of this pulpy comedy drama about a pair of teenagers on the run. Watch on Netflix
This hard-hitting true crime drama is an enraging look at the police blunders that facilitated a serial rapist, featuring brilliant performances from Toni Collette, Merritt Wever and Kaitlyn Dever. Watch on Netflix

It’s a buzzy drama streamed on Netflix, about an ordinary man (played by an actor traditionally known for comedy) forced into criminality and brutality by difficult circumstances – so is it any wonder that crime series Ozark is compared to Breaking Bad? Watch on Netflix

The presence of Lost’s Naveen Andrews is a minor clue into the intricacies of Sense8, another sprawling sci-fi piece from the minds of The Wachowskis (The Matrix series, Jupiter Ascending). It follows a group of eight strangers from different corners of the globe who are connected by shared prophetic visions, known as Sensates. What follows is a tailspin of sex, acrobatic fight scenes and endless intrigue – all sadly cancelled after two seasons. Watch on Netflix

The Last Kingdom
We’re expecting season four of The Last Kingdom to land next year, so you have time to go back to the start of the Anglo Saxon epic based on the novels of Sharpe creator Bernard Cornwell. Watch on Netflix
- Where is The Last Kingdom filmed?
A brilliant sitcom which, like many of its US peers (including Parks and Recreation, The Office and New Girl), takes a little bit of time to get going, but by the time the second season swings around all of its characters are fully developed into near-perfect caricatures. It follows the privileged, formerly wealthy Rose family, who attempt to rebuild their lives in the titular town, that was bought by the patriarch (Eugene Levy) as a joke in 1991. Watch on Netflix
There’s a whole lot of heart to this silly yet surprisingly sharp workplace sitcom set in a New York City police precinct. The Lonely Island’s Andy Samberg leads the cast as Jake Peralta, the star detective on a team filled with exquisitely drawn characters. But the show’s secret weapon is Andre Braugher – the former drama actor plays the overly serious Captain Raymond Holt with unrivalled deadpan. Watch on Netflix

The second series of this darkly comic caper – about three fed-up mothers who rob a grocery store and have to deal with endless repercussions – is now available Netflix UK. Binge all 13 episodes now, and settle in for the wait for season 3, which is due out next year… Watch on Netflix
It began as a Channel 4 shot in the dark, but Charlie Brooker‘s drama quickly became one of the most bleakly gripping series on TV. Then Netflix jumped in – because clearly a dystopian vision of the future where technology has taken over our lives is just the thing to show on a service specifically designed to keep you watching your screen for hours on end…
The fifth season features some of its most ambitious and gripping tales to date. There are three new stories, with brilliant performances from Andrew Scott, Miley Cyrus and Anthony Mackie. Watch on Netflix

When They See Us
Ava DuVernay’s harrowing, vital re-telling of the true story of the Central Park Five, which saw five black and Hispanic teens wrongfully convicted of a rape that took place in New York City in 1989. Across four episodes, it goes from police procedural and a courtroom drama before launching into a heartbreaking finale which delves into the consequences the conviction had upon one particularly unfortunate member of the gang.

Netflix’s eight-part series follows chain-smoking New Yorker Nadia, as she weaves her way through a mysterious time loop that sees her celebrating her 36th birthday – and then dying. Over and over and over again. Co-created by Leslye Headland, Natasha Lyonne and Amy Poehler, this is no Groundhog Day rehash. With a New York sass all of its own and a high concept pay-off, it’s oh-so surreally satisfying. Watch on Netflix
