3. You Don't Know Me

Sunday 5th and Monday 6th December at 9pm on BBC One


BBC One's latest drama You Don't Know Me stars Samuel Adewunmi as Hero, a young man from South London who stands in court, accused of murder. Despite the overwhelming evidence against him, he swears he’s innocent. But in the end, all that matters is whether the jury believes him.


As the prosecution barrister relates damning evidence to him in the closing speech, Hero decides he wants to tell his own story, rather than the version that his barrister decided was in his best interests and exercises his right to present his own closing speech.


Firing his barrister, Hero tells the jury that he is innocent and as he explains the weight of physical and circumstantial evidence against him, he shares a very different sequence of events that placed a law-abiding car salesman in the frame for murder.


1-2/4 Continues Sundays and Mondays. All episodes available at launch



4. Ragdoll

Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th December at 9pm on Alibi


Henry Lloyd-Hughes stars in Alibi's latest original drama Ragdoll as disgraced detective DS Rose who has just been reinstated to the London police.


At the same time, his colleagues, newly-promoted DI Baxter, played by Thalissa Teixeira and young American ingenue, DC Edmunds, played by Lucy Hale are called to a grim discovery in a block of flats.


A 'Ragdoll' hangs from the ceiling, made up of six different body parts. When a hit list is released naming six more victims due to die, the team must race against time with the killer creating ever more ingenious methods to murder their victims.


With a suspicious Edmunds looking into Rose's ever increasing erratic behaviour, Rose sets out on a secret investigation to find the killer before it's too late


1-2/6 Continues Mondays and Tuesdays



5. Two Doors Down

Monday 6th December at 10pm on BBC Two


Following a brilliant Christmas special in 2020, Two Doors Down is back for its fifth series and Beth is cooking up a veggie curry to celebrate Ian and Gordon’s anniversary. But when the boys arrive, it’s Ian’s black eye that catches his parents' attention.


The night starts to go downhill as Cathy and Colin invite themselves over, and Christine turns up with an upset stomach, demanding to know if Beth’s kitchen is clean.

6. Landscapers

Tuesday 7th December at 9pm on Sky Atlantic


David Thewlis and Olivia Colman are front and centre of Sky Atlantic's new drama Landscapers which tells a unique love story involving a seemingly ordinary couple who become the focus of an extraordinary investigation when a couple of dead bodies are discovered in the back garden of a house in Nottingham.


Mild-mannered husband and wife Susan and Christopher Edwards have been on the run from reality for over 15 years. When Christopher makes a startling call home to his step-mother, their role in a terrible crime that remained undiscovered for over a decade begins to emerge into the light. As their relationship is subjected to the glare of a full police investigation, the devoted couple are separated for the first time in their marriage.


As the investigation moves forward, inspired by Susan’s obsession with old Westerns and classic cinema the fantasists cast themselves as Hollywood heroes in narratives of their own invention. Powered by Susan’s extraordinary imagination, Susan and Chris’s fantasy world provides a much-needed sanctuary from real-world horrors and their own clawing guilt but also threatens to undo them completely.


1/4 Continues weekly. All episodes available at launch

With Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis reprising their famous roles, this new chapter follows the three friends as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.
