The story follows a private detective, Cormoran Strike, and his partner Robin as they attempt to cover mysteries that have taken place in and around London. With very compelling, loveable characters – and always with a brilliant twist to boot – we're already buzzing for season five.


Three Girls

While DI Ray follows the team uncovering evidence about a terrifying human trafficking case, the reality of the crime is all too real. Three Girls looks at the true story of a sex abuse ring in Rochdale – and how the victims were treated by police at the time.


Happy Valley

Love a strong female lead? It doesn't get much better than Sarah Lancashire as Sergeant Catherine Cawood. In the drama, Catherine's home and work lives collide after a young woman is kidnapped – and the man behind is the same one who assaulted her late daughter, Becky, and who she blames for her death. Gripping stuff.


Professor T

Death in Paradise's first ever detective Ben Miller stars as a Professor of Criminology at Cambridge University, who is a genius with a penchant for solving crimes. The show is set to return for season two, and we can't wait to see what's in store for him next.
