Paddington 2. Those are the only two words you need for July, as Amazon Prime Video finally gives us a chance to catch up with the nation’s favourite CGI bear as many times as we like. Which, given the film’s winning sense of humour, charming message of family and inclusivity and gorgeous portion of Hugh Grant, is many, many times.
The rest of the month is equally mouth-watering, thanks to the arrival of two foodie documentaries, as well as the recent Vivienne Westwood profile and the latest offering from Drake Doremus – not to mention weekly episodes of Dietland, Preacher and The Bold Type.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Amazon Prime Video UK in July 2018:
