i talk: are you being served?

Are You Being Served

When it was announced that the BBC were bringing Are You Being Served? back for a one-off with a brand new cast, I’ll admit I had my head in my hands and was pretty sure it was the worst decision the BBC have made in a long time.

i talk: david brent: life on the road

David Brent Life On The Road

15 years ago, The Office launched on BBC Two and now David Brent is back… only this time he’s on the big screen and I’ve been lucky enough to watch Life On The Road ahead of its release.

i talk: the rebel

i talk: brief encounters

Brief Encounters

Get ready for the big feel-good hit of the summer… Brief Encounters!

i talk: taskmaster (series 2)

Taskmaster 2

Taskmaster is one of those shows you really have to watch to get. Sure, it’s essentially five comedians, competing against each other by taking on a series of ridiculous tasks. But that doesn’t really do the show justice.

i talk: new blood

New Blood

When you look back at the outstanding drama the BBC have produced so far this year, they all have one thing in common.

i talk: mum

Mum

When BBC Three moved online earlier on this year, it left behind a great comedy legacy, including Little Britain, Gavin & Stacey and Him & Her, and now the BAFTA award-winning team behind Him & Her are back for a brand new comedy Mum, this time on BBC Two.

i talk: in the club (series 2)

In The Club 2

Cast your minds back to August 2014, and you’ll probably remember an excellent new drama about pregnancy on BBC One. It was called In The Club, and starred Jill Halfpenny, Hermione Norris and Christine Bottomley amongst others.

i talk: the secret

The Secret

James Nesbitt returns to ITV in The Secret, a new four-part drama which tells the story of a real life double murder.

i talk: flowers

Flowers

Described by Channel 4 as a dark comedy drama, Flowers is being treated as a bit of an event for the channel as they’ve decided to show all six episodes across five consecutive evenings. Although the jury is out as to whether it is or not.

i talk: the five

The Five

First there was Stan Lee’s Lucky Man, and now Sky 1 just keep the good drama coming with new ten-part drama, Harlan Coben’s The Five.

i talk: camping

Camping

Julia Davis returns to Sky Atlantic this month with a brand new comedy, Camping.

i talk: the people next door

The People Next Door

On Wednesday night, Channel 4 follow-up Cyberbully with The People Next Door, another compelling and thought-provoking drama, this time looking at what happens when a young couple move in next door to the neighbours from hell.

i talk: marcella

Marcella

Monday night sees ITV stray away from period drama (they don’t do that very often), as they launch new eight-part contemporary drama Marcella, starring Anna Friel.

i talk: plebs (series 3)

Plebs 3

Plebs the ITV2 comedy set in Ancient Rome, is returning for a third series with a host of new cameos as well as the old favourites we’ve grown to love.
