Chasing Shadows

More often than not ITV always excels when it comes to producing a good crime drama. The ridiculously popular Vera and Lewis sit alongside such gems as the critically acclaimed Broadchurch.

Lee Ingleby

It seems to me that TV drama is gearing up for the impending autumn and winter months with a number of period dramas ready to drop. Set in 1930; Our Zoo features down-to-Earth characters, wonderful period costume and plenty of cute animals. Upon first seeing the drama I felt it was ideal Sunday night viewing, so I’ve got no idea why BBC One have decided to schedule it on a Wednesday.
