WHAT TO WATCH 30 April - 6 May

This week's best telly includes a new ITV crime drama, a brand new series of The Circle USA, and a Selling Sunset reunion which promises to be unmissable, plus so much more!

Here are 7 TV shows you can't miss this week...

1. DI Ray

Monday 2nd - Thursday 5th May at 9pm on ITV

Parminder Nagra leads ITV's brand new Birmingham-set drama, DI Ray, in the title role of Leicester-born DI Rachita Ray, a police officer who takes on a case that forces her to confront a lifelong personal conflict between her British identity and her South Asian heritage.

Rachita achieves the promotion she’s been waiting for when she’s asked to join a homicide investigation. However, on her first day, she’s told the murder to which she’s been assigned is a ‘Culturally Specific Homicide.’ Rachita’s heart sinks as she suspects she’s a ‘token appointment’, chosen for her ethnicity rather than her ability.

Never one to shy away from a challenge, Rachita sticks to the case, determined to both find the killer and call out the obvious biases her colleagues are bringing to the investigation. And it’s far from easy. The case isn’t a run-of-the-mill murder; it involves delving deep into the dangerous world of organised crime.

Rachita is more than up for the task, but what she didn’t count on is what this case stirs up inside her; the realisation that she’s been burying a personal identity crisis her whole life.
