Three new things to watch on TV this week:
We can't wait for this one! Starring comedian Alison Spittle, it tells the story of Alison who is forced to move back home with her parents in the country, after being fired from a radio job in Dublin. Alison has to try and get used to living back at home, while also trying to sort herself out with a new job. The series was co-written by Alison Spittle and her boyfriend Simon Mulholland- it looks gas. Make sure you tune in.
Well there's not much we can say on this- fans of the show will already know how exciting this is. The highly anticipated fourth series of Peaky Blinders starring Cillian Murphy hits screens finally on Wednesday. The new series opens with notorious criminal Thomas Shelby seemingly gone all legit- it seems like he finally has escaped the gang rat race. However a threatening letter shows up which forces him to rebuild bridges with people he's betrayed. The series also sees some new characters such as Adrian Brody- also including two Irish actors joining the cast- Aiden Gillen and Charlie Murphy (Love/hate). We are beyond exciting about this.
If you're still suffering from Downton Abbey withdrawal symptoms or just love a good period drama- you'll love this. The latest BBC period series- Howards End is an adaptation of EM Forster's novel of the same name. There have been several film adaptations of the noviel but this is the first series for TV. The story follows two upper class families- the Wilcoxes and the Schlegls and explores issues of class, race and feminism in Edwardian England. Like most period dramas, there is a lot going on- which means a lot of juicy drama and of course, visually it's stunning- the sets and costumes are gorgeous.
