Easter is coming, and that means an extra long weekend to binge some box sets – and, in the case of this April, it’s a chance to catch up on some of ITV’s top dramas before they depart Netflix UK, including moving true crime series Little Boy Blue and age-old comedy-drama Cold Feet.
From British comedy to one of the best biopics ever put on celluloid, this is your last chance to stream the following:
What We Did on Our Holiday – 17th April
Rosamund Pike and David Tennant are on charming form in this underrated, Outnumbered-esque comedy about a troubled couple, who try to put on a happy face while visiting family in the Scottish Highlands – but their three children innocently reveal all of their biggest secrets.
Jackie – 19th April
Natalie Portman is on award-worthy form in this deliciously unconventional biopic of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, who fights through grief and trauma following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy to regain her faith, console her children, and define her husband’s legacy.
Cold Feet – 30th April
After ITV’s successful revival of the hit drama, don’t miss the chance to go back to the very beginning and hang out with James Nesbitt, Helen Baxendale, John Thomson, Fay Ripley, Robert Bathurst and Hermione Norris.
Little Boy Blue – 30th April
Jeff Pope’s sensitive true crime drama explores the murder of an innocent child amid a wave of gang violence. The child in question? 11-year-old Rhys Jones, who was shot in a car park on the way to football practice. We learn about the murder at the same time as mother Melanie (Sinead Keenan), and the drama doesn’t let up from there, gently teasing out the impact of Rhys’ death in moving fashion. Stephen Graham is superb as DS Dave Kelly, who leads the police investigation.
