Rating: 3.9/5

Set in Bath, two feature-length films pair the wildly ambitious DCI McDonald with the shy, modest DS Dodds. While McDonald has transferred from the mean streets of South London to leap up the career ladder, Dodds has happily languished on the shelf for most of his working life. McDonald is a tough, driven, battering ram of a cop who cracks cases through sheer force of will; Dodds - the tortoise to her hare - is quiet, unassuming and enigmatic. But thrust back into frontline action for the first time in a decade, he discovers a hidden talent for deciphering puzzles. Two contemporary Britons, seemingly with nothing in common, thrown together, boss McDonald and loyal sidekick Dodds forge a rumbustious, entertaining and ultimately - give or take a few setbacks - effective partnership.

Married to Wesley for 25 years, Bel has spent the last 18 years as a homemaker and mum to their twins, but having just waved them off to university, now has a void in her life. Enter Teddy , brother-in-law and long-time best friend, begging her to step in and rescue the family business - a down-at-heel beauty salon in Manchester's Northern Quarter. Like Bel, it could do with a bit of a face-lift. And possibly a clear-out, since it employs her high-maintenance family: mother Ivy-Rae, sisters Leanne, Tina and Heidi. Into the mix comes beautiful 20-something Personal Trainer Lorelei who seems to have caught Wes's eye... can Bel reconcile the demands of her business, her warring family and the problems in her marriage?

Rating: 4.2/5

Florence, 1429. Giovanni de Medici, thanks to a contract stipulated with the Papacy twenty years before, has transformed his family bank into an unprecedented economic force. But then, Giovanni is mysteriously murdered, and his sons, Cosimo and Lorenzo, are forced to face a range of enemies plotting to oust the Medici from power. First in line is Rinaldo Albizzi, head of the faction of nobles, who stands opposed not only to the rise of the middle class, favored by the Medici, but also to Cosimos vision for the city, including his patronage of magnificent works of art and architecture by such great artists as Donatello and Brunelleschi. Also in the Medici family keeping the peace is not an easy task. Lorenzo and Cosimo are nearly opposite in temperament, and Cosimos marriage to Contessina de Bardi formed as a political alliance but then matured into a formidable partnership will be severely strained during his exile in Venice. It is there that Cosimo takes up with Maddalena, a beautiful slave who becomes his mistress and the mother of his illegitimate son. In the meantime, the mystery of who killed Giovanni continues to lurk behind the scenes, and a new arch-enemy appears on the horizon in the person of the rival banker Pazzi. All the while, the onerous guilt of the compromises made and the evil done for the good of the family weighs heavily on Cosimos soul. He must decide how far he is willing to go to preserve his vision of Florence a vision we now know as the Renaissance.

Rating: 3/5

HIM is a three-part 'domestic horror' drama commissioned by ITV from the producers of Unforgotten, Mainstreet Pictures, and written by the multi award-winning screenwriter Paula Milne. The story focuses on a 17-year-old boy, (known only in the drama as HIM) who is caught in the limbo between childhood and adulthood. But he's also trapped in a limbo between the two homes of his divorced parents, each now remarried with new families. He is the cuckoo in both their nests, a reminder of the failure of their past and a threat to their new found domestic bliss. Like any teenager, he is riding a rollercoaster of confusing emotions. Like most boys he finds it hard to process his feelings so tends to "act out". But his behaviour is also triggered by something else. He is engaged in a primal struggle to contain the terrifying secret of a supernatural power he inherited from his grandfather. A power that only his ageing grandmother understands, who urges him to use his gift only for 'good' for she knows if he doesn't it could end in tragedy. When his 17-year-old stepsister Faith moves into the family home, HIM finds himself irrevocably drawn to her. They both know their mutual attraction could rupture the family. The turmoil this causes in HIM escalates out of control and with it his supernatural power - and those closest to him are in his line of fire. This striking and original drama focuses on life's major themes: the painful breakdown of relationships, love, loss, betrayal and passion. At the heart of the story is HIM's rite of passage from boyhood to manhood as he struggles not to lose his humanity and control his supernatural power.

Rating: 3.7/5

This is a hard-hitting and contemporary new take on the police procedural. Each episode starts with a news report, then follows a team of detectives as they proceed from their initial investigation of the circumstances through to identifying and charging the perpetrator. To lend verisimilitude, the actors work without a script, and the show is shot in the style of a fly-on-the-wall documentary.
