New world dramas – details

Mary Kills People S2 More4 24/09/2019
“Thought-provoking, darkly comic drama about an ER doctor who lives a secret double life”. Caroline Dhavernas stars as an ER doctor who helps terminally ill patients end their lives.

My Life Is Murder S1 Alibi 24/09/2019
“Fearless and playful, she acts on instinct; both avenging angel and a bit of a shit stirrer; deeply empathetic and blunt to the point of rudeness. And with a deeply irreverent sense of humor to boot. Other than the fact her husband died a few years ago, very few people know much about Alexa or why she left the force, rendering this woman a mystery in and of herself. And Alexa can’t resist a mystery, so when former colleague and long-time friend Detective Inspector Kieran Hussey asks her to “consult” on his trickier cases, she seems reluctant. But in truth, she can’t resist. Joining Alexa to solve the unsolvable is the bubbly, sarcastic, ambitious and grounded, Madison. A true extrovert, Madison works as a Data Analyst for the Police and is on hand at Alexa’s call to do what she does best”.

Glitch S3 Netflix 25/09/2019

Bard of Blood S1 Netflix 27/09/2019
“Years after a disastrous job in Balochistan, a former Indian spy must confront his past when he returns to lead an unsanctioned hostage-rescue mission”.

El Marginal S3 Netflix 27/09/2019
