Top 5 Best TV Dramas

I’m a sucker for a good TV drama. I think I must get it from my parents, anytime there’s a new police drama on TV it goes straight on their Sky+. Below is a list of my favourite TV Dramas and it goes without saying that I would highly recommend you check them out!

Line of Duty is back and oh boy, is it back with a bang. Now airing its fifth season, Line of Duty is a police drama following three Anti-Corruption officers trying to root out corrupt Police Officers. With guest stars such as Keeley Hawes and Thandie Newton appearing on seasons 2-3 and 4 respectively Line of Duty manages to ramp up the tension every week and leave viewers on the edge of their seats. The storylines throughout the seasons link together making the plot complex and gripping and with seasons 1-4 currently available on Netflix, what are you waiting for?!

From the writers of Line of Duty, The Bodyguard follows Sgt. David Budd (Richard Madden) who gets assigned to a protection detail for Home Secretary Julia Montague (Keeley Hawes). I honestly don’t even want to go too far into the storyline because you just have to see it! It has that same tension of Line of Duty but the story is unique and gripping, I can’t recommend it enough.

Doctor Foster is a two season-long drama about a woman who suspects her husband of having an affair. Played by Suranne Jones, Gemma Foster goes to great lengths to find out if her husband is being unfaithful in season one, and the drama continues in season two when the effects of her actions ripple out onto her son and her friends. Suranne Jones is incredible and makes you feel true empathy for her character, I could watch it again and again.

I think it considered a fact now that Sandra Oh KILLED in Killing Eve. I’m also a sucker for Jodie Comer (who also appears in Doctor Foster) and think that she’s just awesome in whatever I see her in. Killing Eve follows MI5 officer Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) who becomes obsessed with catching assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer). The thing I loved about Killing Eve above all else was the dialogue, I thought it was beautifully written filled with wit. I can’t say the storyline was perfect for me but the two leading ladies were outstanding and the writing was amazing, definitely making it worth a watch.

Game of Thrones. It starts TOMORROW and I can’t breathe (can you tell?). I was late to the party on this one but once I got there and had a couple of drinks (i.e. trudged through seasons one and two) I was so there for it! Don’t get me wrong, the first couple of seasons are perfect TV but when I first watched it.. my god I had no idea which way was up, who was who, people were dying left right and centre before I could learn their names! I always say its one you’ve got to put the work in for but they pay-off is like nothing else, its one of those shows where I’m insanely jealous of anyone who hasn’t seen it because watching it for the first time can be mindblowing.

So that rounds up my favourite TV dramas, I hope it gave you a little bit of inspo for your next Friday night in.

I’d also love it if you dropped me a comment telling me if you’ve seen any of these, or better yet and suggestions that I have to watch!

A welcome homecoming

My boyfriend came home from uni this weekend and it’s been great having him around again. We had a really nice dinner on Wednesday which definitely made my week brighter.

A great catch up

Having not seen my oldest friend for about 2 years I decided it was time for a reunion. It was like nothing had changed and I’m so happy I went out on a limb and messaged her! Hopefully there’ll be many more lunch dates to come.

A great TV show

My dad and I sat and watched the latest Line Of Duty on Sunday night and oh my god was it intense. We sat and rewound and rewatched the last 90 seconds for about 15 minutes trying to work out what we aren’t supposed to know until next week; and alas, we failed. But either way I can’t wait until we sit and do the same thing this Sunday!

A new hobby

I’ve been going to the gym for the past couple of weeks and I’m already feeling better for it. I don’t have any particular goal in mind which weirdly might be keeping me coming back. Without anything to get dishearted by or a routine to box me in I’m free to do whatever I feel is best, and any benefits I see will be a bonus.

An anticipation-filled weekend

Game of Thrones starts again on Monday. I. Can’t. Wait.
