Autumn’s top TV delights

As the nights draw in, the leaves change from green to orange, and the temperature becomes decidedly chilly, we’re looking forward to cosy evenings on the sofa with the TV. Check out these shows for some top autumn TV watching.

Blue Planet II


The wait is over. Sixteen years after the original series, Blue Planet II makes a very welcome return. Expect all manner of amazing sea creatures, beautifully filmed in the deep blue sea. Even the prequel is well worth a watch, with its Radiohead-Hans Zimmer collaboration providing the backdrop to Attenborough’s soothing narrative.

Doctor Who


Who? Doctor Who. That’s who. And for the first time, a female Who too. Peter Capaldi will have his last outing as the Doctor in this year’s Christmas special, ‘Twice Upon a Time’. Next year, Jodie Whittaker is set to take over for another thrilling series of Cybermen, time-travelling, and of course, Daleks. What’s not to like?

Peaky Blinders


Critically acclaimed gangster drama Peaky Blinders will be back this autumn for a hotly anticipated series four. The premiere will see Tommy Shelby receive a mysterious letter on Christmas Eve telling him the Peaky Blinders are in “danger of annihilation”. Keep an eye out for Tommy Shelby and his gang in mid-November…


Another popular series due to return later in 2017 is ITV’s Marcella, a London based crime drama written by Swedish novelist Hans Rosenfeldt, who also created The Bridge. Anna Friel plays Detective Sergeant Backland, a troubled character who in the first series became a suspect and a witness in the murder case she was trying to solve.
