The Tunnel

After a French politician’s corpse is found on the border between the UK and France in the Channel Tunnel, a laid-back British detective teams up with a serious French detective to solve the crime. Cutting between South East England and northwestern France, the duo quickly discovers this murder is the first in a chain of killings by “The Truth Terrorist,” who claims to be highlighting Europe’s social problems with every crime he commits. Watch all episodes now.


Set in the Whitechapel district of London’s East End, the crime series has an imperfect leading man: Detective Inspector Joe Chandler, whose privileged background and good looks have fast-tracked him up the chain of command, but who has very little street cred or experience. On his team is the archetypal cynical, seen-it-all-veteran, Detective Sergeant Ray Miles. The first season pits the sleuths against a copycat killer who follows the technique of Jack-the-Ripper, whose 11 unsolved murders in the 1880s were referred to as “the Whitechapel Murders.” The police soon enlist the help of amateur “Ripperologist” Edward Buchan, an expert in historical homicides. In season two, the trio must find out who is modeling their murders after those of the Kray twins in the 1950s and 1960s East London, while seasons three and four have a variety of gruesome history-based whodunits. Watch all episodes now.

Masterpiece: My Mother and Other Strangers

The five-part miniseries has come to a close with a bit of a cliffhanger. Set in Northern Ireland during World War Two, My Mother and Other Strangers follows the fortunes of the Coyne family and their neighbors as they struggle to maintain a normal life after a huge United States Army Air Force (USAAF) airfield, with 4,000 service men and women, lands in the middle of their rural parish. Tensions with her husband lead Rose Coyne to consider what life with an American officer could bring. Watch all episodes now.
