What to Watch: From It’s A Sin to The White Tiger, here’s your guide to the best TV shows
Evening Standard’s arts commissioning editor Katie Rosseinsky gives her verdict on the best TV and Netflix shows to indulge in this weekend.
First up is It’s A Sin, the hugely anticipated new series from Russell T. Davies. Set in Eighties London and starring Years and Years frontman Olly Alexander as aspiring actor Ritchie, it follows a group of young gay men as they pursue their dreams in the capital, with their friendships tested and lives shaped by the shadow of the Aids crisis.
There’s also good news for fans of Mitchell and Webb – no, they’re not doing a Peep Show lockdown special, but the second series of Back, their other squirm inducing black comedy, is probably the second best thing.
True crime podcasts, documentaries and dramas are everywhere right now, but The Investigation, which begins on BBC Two on Friday evening, is very different from the grisly shows you might have seen before.
Over on Netflix, this week’s biggest release is The White Tiger, the film adaptation of the Booker Prize-winning novel.
If you’re in need of a bit of light relief, though, we recommend that you sashay your way over to BBC iPlayer, where the second series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is now in full swing, promising more silliness, more shade and more truly jaw-dropping catwalk transformations.
