3. It's A Sin (Channel 4)

It's taken the world by storm in the first part of 2021, so if you haven't started watching it yet, you need to quickly. Telling the tale of group of friends in London in the 80s who are thrust into the centre of the AIDS pandemic, it's a funny, witty, tragic and heart-breaking tale all at once. All episodes are now available on Channel 4's streaming service All4. 


4. Bloodlands (BBC)

Starring James Nesbitt as a DCI out for vengeance, this gritty thriller shows a cold case reappearing after 20 years, when an assassin known as "Goliath" is on the loose with a connection to Nesbitt's inspector, who's wife was one of the victims. Now showing on BBC iPlayer. 


5. Unforgotten (ITV)

The fourth series of this hit drama is airing on ITV all through March, with episodes available to catch up on ITV Hub, while previous seasons are also available to watch. An incredible thriller involving two detectives who solve cold murder cases from decades ago, with each season introducing a new case. 


6. Vikings (Amazon Prime)

This incredible epic has just finished airing its sixth and final season internationally, and all episodes are now available to watch on Prime. The series broadly follows the exploits of the legendary Viking chieftain Ragnar Lothbrok and his crew, and later those of his sons. The first season of the series begins at the start of the Viking Age, marked by the Lindisfarne raid in 793 AD.


7. The Handmaid's Tale (Amazon Prime)

Now three seasons in, this exceptionally popular dystopian drama is now available to a UK mainstream audience for the first time! Based on the 1985 novel of the same name, the story follows a second American Civil War, wherein a totalitarian society subjects fertile women to child-bearing slavery.


8. The Bridge (BBC iPlayer)

All four seasons of this critically-acclaimed Scandinavian drama are now on iPlayer through 2021. Brutally gritty from start to finish, the premise features the body of a woman discovered in two parts on a bridge bordering Sweden and Denmark, and only goes down the rabbit hole from there. Take it from this author - this is quite possibly the best thriller you will ever see.
