Netflix has also recently added several different new TV shows and films that might not be Christmassy, but are perfect to snuggle up to in the winter months. These includes Hacksaw Ridge, La La Land, The Good Place and the second series of The Crown. Speaking about the upcoming new series of the popular show based on the royal family, Matt Smith said: "As with any relationship in good drama, it exposes the frailties and the difficulties. We linger on the things that hinder them."
