His Dark Materials

If you didn't manage to catch the debut episode of His Dark Materials last week, there's still plenty of time to catch up on BBC iPlayer (or HBO in the States) before the next hits on Sunday. The adaptation of Philip Pullman's fantasy book trilogy stars James McAvoy, Ruth Wilson and Dafne Keen as the lead character, Lyra. And, it is already garnering great critical response.

The Man in the High Castle

  • Where: Amazon Prime Video

Another show that started last week but well worth catching up with is season two of Sky's Britannia. Also available through Amazon Prime Video outside of the UK, it continues the story of the Roman conquest of Britain in AD 43.
