Downton Abbey, ITV:  Sunday September 14th.   Get ready for more fun, laughter, tears and of course suprises as the cast of Downton Abbey all come back for a fifth season.  Already we can’t wait to see if Bates is found guilty of murdering the man of his second wife, if Edith will every get a happy ending and what sensational dishes Mrs Pattmore will make over a hot stove? One thing’s for sure Sunday’s viewing is sorted!

The Fall, BBC ONE:   Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson and Paul Spector, a bereavement counsellor-cum-killer will once again take centre stage on this series of The Fall.   Starting right where we left off, Gibson (played by Gillian Anderson) is still in persuit of Spector (played by 50 Shades of Grey actor Jamie Doran) however when Spector becomes psychologically more disturbing, Gibson will have to take bigger and more dangerous risks! You can gurantee viewing for this BBC show will go through the roof and no, not just becuase of Doran.

Doctor Who,  BBC One Saturday, August 23 at 7.50-9.10pm:   New Doctor Peter Capaldi and side kick Jenna Coleman will embark on new missions to keep us entertained throghout the darker nights.  With dangerous monsters and more crazy conspiracy’s we just hope this doesn’t clash with X Factor… but surely the Doctor would fix that for us?!

The Great Fire, ITV:  Written by ITV’s political correspondent Tom Bradby, this bold costume drama will have us all on the edge of our sofas as it recreates 17th century London.  As most know the great fire began in a bakery down Pudding Lane and destroyed huge parts of the city.  This new epic drama tells the story of the city and the people it affected.

Grantchester, ITV:   This six-part series set in late 1950’s, focuses upon the life of Sidney Chambers who is haunted by nightmares and recurring flashbacks to the time he served in the Scot’s Guards. Starring James Norton and Robson Green, the country side of Cambridge and Grantchester will never be the same again.

Cilla, ITV:  Sheridan Smith who plays Cilla Black in this new three part series, will take a look back at 1960s Liverpool as she strives to make it to the top. You can expect a “lorra lorra” laughs and a tear or two.

Peaky Blinders, BBC 2:   Set in 1919 Birmingham, Peaky Blinders follows a gangster family who strive to move up in the world by whatever means possible.  Season one was so popular last year that this year’s cast has become even more fashionable and not just because Tom Hardy will be joining the cast.

And if this wasn’t enough, next year the show that captivated the nation will be back! Yes Broadchuch will be keeping us eating, breathing and guessing what will happen in season 2.  Keeping very tight-lipped about what this year’s story will be, we can expect David Tennant and Olivia Colman entertained.
