Best TV of September 2021: previews five of the best shows... previews five of the most exciting TV dramas that will be coming to your screens in September...



(Sky Max)


Paul Abbott, creator of Shameless and No Offence, returns with a new offering. 

The show stars Guerrilla and Into The Badlands' Babou Ceesay as Wolfe Kinteh.

Kinteh is a forensic pathologist professor and the finest crime scene expert in the North of England. He runs the local university forensics department working hand-in-hand with the police to investigate crime scenes.

Each week, we'll see him attempting to solve a new bloody mystery, all the while trying to keep his mind intact...

Starring alongside Ceesay are Adam Long, Amanda Abbington, Natalie Tena and Talitha Wing. 



(Channel 4)


Stephen Graham and Jodie Comer come together for this hard-hitting drama. 

Set in a fictional Liverpool care home, the drama tells the story of the relationship between Comer's Sarah, a young care home worker and Graham's Tony, a patient, whose lives are changed forever by the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in spring 2020.

Marc Munden directs from a script from His Dark Materials writer Jack Thorne.

Angela Griffin, Mike Noble and Richie Lawrie co-star alongside Comer and Graham.



(BBC One)


Suranne Jones leads an all-star cast in this tense action-drama.

Jones will play DCI Amy Silver, a police offer investigating the disappearance of a Scottish fishing trawler and a death on board a Trident nuclear submarine.

As well as Jones, Rose Leslie, Martin Compston, Connor Swindells, Paterson Joseph and Anjli Mohindra are all on duty. 

Tom Edge, whose credits include Strike and The Crown, is behind this one.


Back To Life

(BBC Three)


Breeders' Daisy Haggard leads the second run of this offbeat comedy, which she also writes alongside Laura Solon. 

Haggard stars as Miri Matteson, who began the first series having just returned home after serving an 18-year prison sentence.

In this new run, Miri continues to reconcile with her past while trying to assimilate and make a new life for herself post-incarceration.

Jo Martin, Adeel Akhtar, Geraldine James and Richard Durden are back to co-star. 


The North Water

(BBC Two)


Jack O'Connell, Colin Farrell, Stephen Graham, Tom Courtenay and Peter Mullan star in this frosty new five-parter.

Based on Ian McGuire's novel of the same name, the story is set in the dying days of the whaling industry and depict the exploits of a whaling vessel called Volunteer in the late 1850s, which is sent towards the North Pole. 

Onboard, the ship’s doctor Patrick Sumner and harpooner Henry Drax, both on the run from their murky pasts, are now under the command of Captain Brownlee.

Brownlee, who lost his last ship and crew and is in league with the owner Baxter, intends to scuttle the Volunteer in an insurance scam. 

However, things quickly go wrong and their mission becomes all about survival...

Andrew Haigh, director of 45 Years, writes and directs this.
