With autumn just around the corner, before you know it we’ll be snuggled up on the sofa as the weather closes in. We’ve taken a look at what shows will be on our small screens in the coming months – here’s a taster of some exciting new shows that are on the schedule as well as the return of some favourites.
A new four-part drama, sees the public and private life of (fictional) Conservative politician, Peter Laurence, falling apart. As the personal revelations spiral, he is shamelessly untroubled by guilt or remorse but with enemies close to home, can he out-run his own secrets?
All Creatures Great and Small, Channel 5
Based on the memoirs of rural Yorkshire vet James Herriot, All Creatures Great and Small is making a welcome return to our screens. With a brand-new cast, the series follows the trials and misadventures of the staff of a country veterinary office in 1940’s Yorkshire.
His Dark Materials, BBC
The second season of His Dark Materials moves on to the events of the second novel, The Subtle Knife, and the dual stories of Lyra Silvertongue and Will Parry are set to collide in a parallel universe as they pursue the truth about Dust.
The Singapore Grip, ITV
Adapted from J.G. Farrell’s 1978 novel, The Singapore Grip is set during the Second World War. This six-part drama tells the story of a prosperous British family and a powerful rubber business in Singapore at the time of the Japanese invasion.
The comedy centres around a young couple, Alison and Mike, who have inherited a decrepit country manor – but when they move in with big renovation plans, they discover a collection of spirits already living there. And the ghosts have plans of their own.
The Sister, ITV
The Sister, is a suspenseful new murder mystery. A man with a terrible secret who is trying to escape the (literal) ghosts of his past. The drama promises suspense, ghosts, murder and love. Intriguing.
And what of the usual autumn reality series? Strictly Comes Dancing returns on October 24 and X-Factor is taking a break this autumn but promises to return next year.
If it’s an edge of the seat thriller, comedy ghosts or sequins and glitter that take your viewing fancy, the autumn schedule certainly has something for everyone.
