This Autumn on ITV you can watch The Larkins, Endeavour and many more shows. We bring you some highlights
ITV has produced a huge 59-page brochure for its Autumn line-up — we won’t be covering them all, but have picked a few we think worth attention (including The Larkins, Endeavour and new show Angela Black). We’re bound to miss some favourites, so let us know what else we should have covered.
We’ve been following progress on this for a while, and it’s nice to see it hit the schedules. Bradley Walsh looks rather dapper in his suit (and sideburns), and we’re looking forward to ’50s Kent when this show lands. We’re expecting it to be a staple of Sunday evenings.
If the previous serious was a little self-absorbed, the eighth series (only three episodes) looks like a change of pace:
Opening the series in 1971, a death threat to Oxford Wanderers’ star striker Jack Swift places Endeavour (Shaun Evans) and his team at the heart of the glitz and glamour of 1970s football, exposing the true cost of success and celebrity, and with it, a deep- rooted division that is soon reflected much closer to home…
It looks like all the cast are back with a strong cast of newcomers as well.
We’ve already seen some impressive trailers for Angela Black, which ITV are billing as a Hitchcockian thriller that follows one woman as she risks everything she holds dear to fight back against the man who has suppressed and tormented her for most of her adult life.
It tackles some difficult themes and may not be for everyone.
The cast includes Joanne Froggatt, Michiel Huisman and Samuel Adewunmi.
We’ve mentioned Buffering and The Tower elsewhere, as well as Anna Maxwell Martin’s Hollington Drive. There’s also Ben Aldridge playing the lead in The Long Call alongside Pearl Mackie, Juliet Stevenson and Martin Shaw adapted from Ann Cleeve’s novel of the same title.
include Vera, Grantchester, The Jonathan Ross Show, Beat The Chasers, The Chase, The Cube, The Emily Atack Show, Family Diaries, TOWIE and Ferne McCann and daytime favourites Good Morning Britain, Lorraine, This Morning and Loose Women. Let’s not forget I’m a Celebrity!
It’s not all drama and light-entertainment, there are also more serious documentaries and dramas based on real life events.
