An Actress's Take on All-Things-Screen

On Right Now

This three-part drama is offering some  comfort in the absence of McMafia (although I needed a BREAK by the end).  It features Adrian Lester (who I did a radio play with) and John  Simm (who also went to Drama Centre) so it's basically like I, personally, will be on screen. I mean, you should watch it just for that!

Carey Mulligan heads up this drama and that sold it for me. I mean - it's Carey! You know the one. The wonderful actress from Blockbusters like The Great Gatsby and Drive. And now she's doing BBC stuff. Feels a bit odd. Nothing wrong with the Beeb however. Just...watch it.

Spiral
BBC FOUR

A French cop drama as recommended by my old man. And i'm loving it. The acting is superb and the characters are brilliant. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the plotline but stay tuned and i'm sure something good will prevail. Catch it on iPlayer now. Gilou, I love you.

The Crown

I have to disclose that I'm NOT actually watching this and I don't like to talk about things I haven't seen myself. But I've heard murmurs across town that a few people are really enjoying it, so I thought it was worth a mention. Might give it a go....

EOT F**king World
Netflix

I auditioned for the leading role of Alyssa in this and i've heard nothing but great things about the show. I'm going to give this a watch as soon as I've finished with Spiral. Can't wait to see what all the fuss is about!

The sinner
Netflix

Netflix is having a cracker. And they busted out yet another new series last month. This time starring Jessica Biel as a woman who stabs a stranger to death without reason. Cor - they're really loving the crime dramas at the moment. But i'm not complaining.
