Last Tango in Halifax - BritBox/BBC iPlayer 

This sweet Yorkshire-based comedy-drama follows old school friends, now OAPs, Alan and Celia as they find one another after decades apart and decide to get married - despite their daughters, Caroline and Gillian, somewhat less than delighted reaction to the news. It is sweet, funny and charming - and a total tonic to settle down to in the evening!

Girls - Sky/NOW TV

A slightly more risqué suggestion is Lena Dunham’s hit show Girls. Focusing on a group of 20-somethings living in NYC, the comedy follows their lives’ trials and tribulations - as well as their complicated friendships with one another. Prepare to laugh, cringe, and laugh again.

Marvelous Mrs Maisel - Amazon Prime Video 

One of our favourite funny ladies on TV right now is Miriam Maisel. After her husband leaves her for his secretary, Miriam discovers that she has a natural gift for stand-up comedy, and decides to do whatever it takes to become a star. Joining her for the journey is Susie, her foul-mouthed, quick-witted manager.

Jane the Virgin - Netflix 

Family drama? Telenovela melodramatics? Immaculate conception (sort of)? All that and more awaits in this sweet and funny series. The story follows Jane, a young woman who accidentally becomes impregnated - despite never having had sex.
