Lady MacBeth, 11.20pm BBC 2


Florence Pugh’s breakout role, Lady Macbeth follows a young woman in 19th century English moors, trapped inside a loveless marriage with a cruel and often absent man twice her age. She soon begins a passionate affair with an estate worker, which has unexpected consequences. Based on a novel by the same name, it’s beautifully shot, part-romance, part-tense thriller.

Streaming wise, there’s plenty out today, including the third installation of To All the Boys on Netflix and A Map of Tiny Perfect Things on Amazon Prime.

Saturday 

The Murders at White House Farm, Netflix

Based on true events of a quintuple murder in Essex in 1985 when a woman diagnosed with schizophrenia was accused of murdering her family before turning the gun on herself. 

The murder mystery miniseries was originally on HBO Max so naturally, it’s a high-end production. It arrives to Netflix today.

Sunday
