Well, if harrowing, yet gripping drama-miniseries based around real-life occurrences is your cup of tea, then you might find the crime-drama Des to be of interest. That came out about three months ago and features David Tennant playing Dennis Nilsen, a narcissistic serial-killer from Scotland, who murdered males in London during the late 70s and early 80s. I was really taken in by it, plan on probably watching it again down the line, simply by how excellently Tennant's acting brought to life the sheer bleakness of this guy's life, and he portrayed the sheer cruelty of Nilsen so well that you could practically see evil thoughts running through his mind. A painful, sorrowful yet thoroughly gripping watch in my humble opinion.

This new game show with ITV, Lingo. I've seen the US version when I've been stateside, and apparently we had it back in the 80s, this new version is an alteration of those two.

There's a few new game-shows out lately, Winning Combination was one I liked, plus a number of old one's coming back, which is good, it is high time we got something fresh in that whole scene.
