As the nights get colder, it’s very tempting to just forget about all of your responsibilities and just snuggle up on the sofa. But, to be able to do that, you need some great entertainment, too. That’s where we come in. Instead of providing you with a huge list that you’ll just never get through, here are the top 3 shows we think you’ll enjoy the most.

  • An Hour To Catch a Killer – ITV – 9pm, Thursday, October 12.
    • This is a must watch for anyone who loves tru crime stories, and it is the beginning of a larger crime and punishment series. This programme follows the devastating story of Alice Ruggles, a 24 year old who had her throat slashed in October last year by her soldier ex-boyfriend Trimaan Dhillon. From the moment of the 999 call all the way up to the moment Dhillon was charged, you’ll learn all about how Alice was stalked by her ex-partner, and just how the police force work to catch a killer in the first ‘golden hour’. Not only will this provide an interesting insight into the police force, it will also raise awareness of stalking, and the legal measures that should be put in place to prevent something like this from happening ever again.
  • Stranger Things
    • If you’ve never heard of Stranger Things before, we’ll certainly be surprised. It was a huge hit last year, and it’s set to be even bigger this time around when it airs on October 27, just in time for Halloween. The whole cast will be returning, alongside some new characters, to fight off the spooky spider-like monster that we know very little about. Whether you’re a huge Stranger Things fan, or you’ve never heard of it before, make sure you’re signed up to Netflix in time for series 2!
  • Back
    • If you’re a fan of Mitchell and Webb (who isn’t?!) you’ll love this new series. Stephen (Mitchell) is forced to step up as head of the family after his father passes away, but it seems he may not be quite the right man for the job. And, when Andrew (Webb), a smooth-talking character who was once fostered by the family for a few months, turns up at the funeral, everything seems to go wrong for Stephen. This series is full of laughs, dark humour, and an underlining tone of sadness, but it’s definitely worth watching. It isn’t quite Peep Show, but it’s certainly close. Though it did air back in September, you can easily catch up before the final episode, on October 12 (Channel 4, 10pm).

Those are just a selection of TV shows that you’ve got to watch this month, but we’re sure there are plenty more. What are you looking forward to watching?
