What to watch this Spring

Spring has officially sprung, and alongside the daffodils there is a whole host of new programmes due to hit our screens.

Born to Kill


Channel 4’s haunting new four-part thriller is set to hit screens later this month. Keeping us busy throughout 2016, we arranged the accommodation and travel for the production. We’re expecting this one to keep us guessing until the end – could it fill the Broadchurch-shaped hole in our lives?

The Durrells


Set for an April return is ITV’s comforting Sunday night drama set in 1930’s Corfu. Keeley Hawes is reprising the role as Louisa Durrell in the adaptation of Gerald Durrell’s book.

House of Cards


This behind the scenes look at the world of American politics has had fans hooked from the outset. Netflix released the trailer and confirmed the release date on Trump’s inauguration day. With rumours that the shows writers could have taken inspiration from the new President’s rise to fame, what boundary is left for Frank Underwood to cross?



Telling the story of the Black Power movement in Britain during the 1970’s, Guerilla has an all-star cast including Idris Elba, Rory Kinnear and Freida Pinto. We were already sold before we heard that Academy Award winner John Ridley was directing!



This BBC biopic will tell the tale of Dame Barbara Windsor, charting her rise to fame. After being elevated to national treasure status following her stint on Eastenders, this is going to be a fitting celebration of ‘a life on screen’ for Babs’ 80th birthday.
