hmv.com previews five of the most exciting TV shows that will be coming to your screens in November…
(BBC One, Starts November 12th)
E.M.Forster’s beloved novel was last adapted for the big screen in 1992, but now gets a fresh re-telling with a script from Manchester By The Sea writer Kenneth Lonergan and direction from Beautiful Thing and Fortitude’s Hettie MacDonald.
Hayley Atwell and Matthew MacFadyen lead the way as Helen Schlegel and Paul Wilcox, the two lovers whose relationships ends rather badly, an end which brings their two very different families into collision.
Tracy Ullman, Joseph Quinn and Alex Lawther are in supporting roles for the series, which will run to four episodes.
(Sky Atlantic, Starts November 5th)
This eight-parter is the most expensive Non-English language show ever produced and begins its run on Sky Atlantic next month.
Set in Berlin in the late 1920’s, the series is an adaptation of Volker Kutscher's bestselling novels and follows Gereon Rath, a young police inspector from Cologne, who is transferred to Berlin in order to solve a case.
At first, the case looks like a simple case of extortion, but it soon turns into a scandal that will forever change the lives of both Gereon and his closest associates.
(Sky Living, Air Date TBC)
Kerry Washington brings Olivia Pope back for a seventh full season, a season that is widely expected to be the show’s final bow.
In this new run, we find Pope in her new position as Chief of Staff of President Mellie Grant and the Command of B613. But can she let go of her old life?
(BBC Two, Air Date TBC)
The hit gangster drama gets a fourth six-part run on BBC Two next month.
Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory, Tom Hardy and Joe Cole all return to star with Adrien Brody and Aiden Gillen joining the cast in key roles.
In the fourth season, we find Murphy’s Tommy Shelby receiving a mysterious letter on Christmas Eve which tells him that the Peaky Blinders are facing “annihilation”, a call which he must answer with all guns blazing...
The White Princess

Doctor Foster’s Jodie Comer takes the lead in this historical epic, which is the sequel to the BBC’s 2013 drama The White Queen and once again adapted from a Philippa Gregory novel.
Starring alongside Comer are Michelle Fairley, Suki Waterhouse, Joanne Whalley and Kenneth Cranham.
The show retells the early days of the marriage of Henry VII and Elizabeth of York, a union which effectively ends the Wars of the Roses by uniting houses of Lancaster and York.
The war might be over, but the plotting and scheming has only just got started, especially from the mothers of both Henry and Elizabeth...
