Box Set Binge

Happy Valley Seasons 1-2, Netflix

If you think Line of Duty's well good – and you haven't been paying attention to the BBC for a few years – you might want to check out this equally superb cop drama.

Sarah Lancashire is nothing less than sensational in the lead role of Catherine Cawood, a strong-willed police sergeant in West Yorkshire, still coming to terms with the suicide of her teenage daughter, Becky.

Sally Wainwright's stories are grim and gripping, and the cause is helped by a fine supporting cast led by Siobhan Finneran as Catherine's sister Claire, a reformed alcoholic and junkie. James Norton is quite chilling as ex-convict Tommy Lee Royce.

Look out too for Irish actress Charlie Murphy in the pivotal role of Anne Gallagher, who gets kidnapped in season one.
