The best choice

Raised By Wolves Season 2

Raised by Wolves is a sci-fi drama about two androids – Mother and Father – raising a group of human orphans on a new planet, trying to guide a new human society after the Earth burns. It’s thoughtful and contemplative, and above all one of the few entirely original sci-fi dramas, not adapted from an existing property.

The best of the rest

Matt Baker: Traveling with Mom and Dad

The great transformation of the house

Emma Willis and Nick Grimshaw team up for a new series as they set out to transform family homes across the country. They have just three days to renovate Becca and Sam’s home in Eastbourne, where they and their four young children are struggling to find space.

moon knight

Star Wars‘ Oscar Isaac takes on a Marvel superhero and clearly decides that if he takes on another big role in the franchise, he’ll have as much fun as he humanly can. That goofy slapstick gets a little darker in the second episode of Moon Knight, which seriously introduces mercenary Marc Spector.

Six different couples, on the verge of marriage but not quite ready to commit, separate and come back together. After eight weeks, each couple must decide if they want to marry their original partner or move on with someone new chosen from one of the other couples.

Broadcast choice

Thirteen

Thirteen is a miniseries about Ivy Moxam (Jodie Comer), a young woman who recently escaped after being kidnapped as a child and imprisoned for thirteen years. Ivy tries to reconnect with her family and friends, sifting through the remnants of her old life as she attempts to forge a new one.

It’s the kind of show that tends to go unnoticed – the kind of thing that a friend recommends at length and you never go to, even if you really should have listened to it – but that’s not worth it. no less worth watching.
