Weekly favourites

Consider this a combination of MUST WATCH and all new weekly favourites combined, as it is absolutely both. Let me introduce you to Marcella, a crime drama that played out on ITV in April and May. Starring Anna Friel, it will keep you on the edge of your seat for every single episode. So in a way I've done you a favour by bringing it late to the party as you can get the whole series at once - believe me when I say you need to watch it this way. If I'd been watching it week by week I'm not sure I would have slept in between each episode! 

I'm not too good at describing plots of shows, and frankly there is so much going on that it would be impossible to explain. In the briefest of summaries: there's a killer, Marcella is on the case, you'll probably decide the killer is a different person each week until it's finally revealed in the penultimate episode...or is it?! It's dark, gripping, creepy, totally thrilling, and bloody brilliantly acted. It's definitely one of the best series I've seen this year. 

I watched it in two days flat (there are some perks to my weird work rota). And I have no fingernails left. It's that good. 

You can download and watch the entire series here. If you are in the UK it is also available via the ITV Hub on-demand option. And according to the world of wiki, it will be available internationally via Netflix soon. I'm already envious that you get to watch it for the first time...
