It's back to school time...which also means back to tele time, woo!

Here are our top three picks for this week:

1) Diana and I, BBC Two, Monday at 9pm

With the anniversary of the death of Princess Diana last week, we've seen a whole host of documentaries on the her, this however we are getting a fictional one-off drama. It follows the stories of members of the public who are affected by Diana's death....including Mary a lonely florist who goes to London to sell flowers around the funeral period, Michael who is a journalist in Paris and Jack who struggles to cope with Diana's death as his mum dies around the same time. Tasmin Greig from the Green Wing stars in the one. 

2) Back, Channel 4, Wednesday at 10pm 

This is a brand new comedy series from David Mitchell and Robert Webb (yes, the lads from Peep Show) But it's NOT Peep show. In this show David Mitchell plays Stephen- who is an underachiever who is forced into being head of the family after his dad dies. However a former foster child shows up (Webb) who causes all sorts of havoc.

3) American Vandal, Netflix from Sept 15th

Ok so technically this isn't out until next week- but it's so bizarre I feel we need to speak about it now. When the trailer for this first came out people thought it was a hoax, but it turns out Netflix is basically just making a series that takes the mick out of all of it's own true crime documentaries like making a murder. This one is set in a high school, after 27 cars are vanadalised everyone points to bone head Dylan Maxwell- but (shockingly) it turns out there is more to this crime than meets the eye...
