The TV To Look Forward To For The Rest Of The Year
Bridgerton – Series 3, Netflix
While this one hasn’t got a run date yet, if it’s anything like the last two Bridgerton series, we suspect it will land on Christmas Day.

After Penelope was cruelly dismissed by Colin at the end of season two, she sets about finding a new match in the ferocious Regency marriage market.

Fleishman Is In Trouble, Disney+
We loved Taffy Brodesser-Akner’s 2019 novel, so can’t wait for this upcoming adaptation.

But just at the start of his first summer of sexual freedom, his ex-wife Rachel (Claire Danes) disappears, leaving him with 11-year-old Hannah and nine-year-old Solly, and no hint of where she is or whether she plans to return. As he balances parenting, the return of old friends Libby (Lizzy Caplan) and Seth (Adam Brody), a potential promotion at the hospital and all the eligible women that Manhattan has to offer, he realises he'll never be able to figure out what happened to Rachel until he can finally face what happened to their marriage in the first place.

Noele ‘Nolly’ Gordon was a legend in her own lifetime. As flame-haired widow Meg Richardson in the long-running soap opera Crossroads, she was one of the most famous people in Britain. Then in 1981, at the height of the show’s success and the peak of Nolly’s fame, she was axed without ceremony, warning or explanation. With the boss’s words, “All good things must come to an end”, ringing in her ears, Noele found herself thrown out of the show that was her life for over 18 years. It's A Sin’s Russell T Davies’s upcoming ITV drama – starring Helena Bonham Carter – brings the true Noele Gordon once more into the spotlight. And at last, the biggest question of all can be answered – why was she sacked?
