The third season of the award-winning drama continues the story of two women with brutal pasts, addicted to each other but now trying desperately to live their lives without their drug of choice.
For Villanelle (Jodie Comer), the assassin without a job, Eve (Sandra Oh) is dead. For Eve, the ex-MI6 operative hiding in plain sight, Villanelle will never find her.
All seems fine until a shocking and personal death sets them on a collision course yet again. The journey back to each other will cost both of them friends, family, and allegiances…and perhaps a share of their souls.
In the second series, the story picks up three weeks after an arrest warrant is issued for Andrew Earlham for the sexual assault of 19 women.
But after Andrew’s body is found in the Kent marshes, brand-new character Detective Inspector Karen Renton (Cheat actress Katherine Kelly) and her team are tasked with uncovering clues about this man’s past – and finding out the truth about those weeks leading up to his murder.
The contemporary, thrilling and fast-paced crime series, Van Der Valk, centres on the investigations of a charismatic detective – a complex, thoughtful and ‘real’ sleuth who tackles tough crimes.

BAFTA® and Golden Globe®-winning actress Brenda Blethyn returns for a tenth series as the unorthodox but brilliant DCI Vera Stanhope. Vera may be unconventional and unglamorous, but she faces the world with her caustic wit, guile and courage, and what she lacks in charm she more than makes up for in wisdom and insight. Follow along as the indomitable Vera and her trusted team investigate tragic and intriguing cases, chasing ruthless killers, unravelling complex mysteries and uncovering secrets that sometimes stray a little too close to home.
Hugely popular detective drama, Endeavour, returns for a seventh highly-anticipated series. Shaun Evans reprises his role as DS Endeavour Morse, alongside Roger Allam as DCI Fred Thursday, for a new set of compelling cases. The new trilogy of films mark Endeavour and his colleagues entering a new decade and era of change. Opening on New Year’s Eve 1969, normal order has been resumed and the team reunited at Castle Gate CID, with Chief Superintendent Bright back in charge.

Featuring a stellar ensemble cast including Academy Award winner Helen Hunt, Emmy and BAFTA-winner Sean Bean, and Academy Award nominated and Olivier Award winner Lesley Manville, the first series draws viewers gradually into the creeping horror of the outbreak of the war during its first year.

Featuring contemporary crime stories told with warmth and humour, McDonald & Dodds follows the investigations of a wildly mismatched detective duo, against the backdrop of Britain’s most traditional city. Newly promoted, the ambitious DCI McDonald has swapped the mean streets of London to leap up the career ladder in picturesque Bath. A tough, driven, battering ram of a cop, McDonald cracks cases through sheer force of will. When she’s partnered with veteran sergeant Dodds, the pair instantly lock horns over their different approaches to policing – and to life. The tortoise to her hare, Dodds is quiet and unassuming, with a hidden talent for deciphering puzzles. But this new double act, thrown together with seemingly nothing in common, soon forge a rumbustious, entertaining and ultimately – give or take a few setbacks – effective partnership. Faced with a greed-fuelled murder in the upper echelons of Bath society and an unexplained death in a hospital for recovering addicts, McDonald and Dodds soon realise that their differences will be their strength when it comes to solving these gripping mysteries.
