Not Going Out (Series 4)
After originally being axed by the BBC after series 3, Not Going Out returned to BBC One last month to its biggest audience ever. The hit sitcom, written by and starring Lee Mack alongside long-term comedy partner Tim Vine, sees Lee's infatuation flatmate with Lucy (Sally Bretton) hit more trouble as he finds himself getting involved with drugs, a long-lost daughter and a coma. With Tim's ditzy girlfriend Daisy (Katy Wix) on hand to help, series 4 of Not Going Out is packed full of laughs.
Coronation Street: Tram Crash
It was the dramatic week that changed everything on the nation's favourite street and this month it's out on DVD. Coronation Street celebrated its 50th anniversary in typical over the top style last year with an extraordinary week of episodes, including a live hour long special, which focused on a spectacular tram crash and its highly dramatic and emotional aftermath. With the DVD packed full of bonus features and behind the scenes extras, this is a must for any Corrie fan.
Primeval (Series 4)
Another series which returned this year after initially being axed was ITV1's science fiction & fantasy drama Primeval. Following on a year from where the previous series left off, series 4 of Primeval sees that the government has revamped the ARC with a brand new team headed by Philip Burton (Alexander Siddig). With Abbey and Corner still missing and presumed dead after disappearing into an anomaly, can Philip's new team handle the pressure of the ever changing threat of creature attacks? A brilliant explosive drama for the whole family.
This truly amazing documentary series follows in the footsteps of the world's ultimate animals - humans - the most successful species on the planet. From the frozen Arctic to the built up cities of our nation's capital, people have found remarkable ways to adapt to environment imaginable on our planet. Human Planet weaves together eighty inspiring stories, many never told before on television, set to a globally influenced soundtrack by award-winning composer Nitin Sawhney and narrated by the wonderful John Hurt.
Law & Order: UK (Series 3)
Law and Order UK is the UK edition of the long-running U.S. TV drama that tells the stories of two separate yet equally important groups, the police, who investigate the crime and the attorneys, who prosecute the offenders. Series 3 of this great fast paced drama saw another seven tense episodes, culminating in the prosecution of a stalker who has been pestering Stephanie Blake (Michelle Bonnard) for more than two years.
