The Handmaid’s Tale – An adaption of the novel written by Margaret Atwood that was originally published in 1985. It is a dystopian novel which is set in the future (not sci-fi future) where people live in a totalitarian state which overthrew the US Government. The story follows the life of Offred who is a handmaid. They are forbidden from using their birth name and instead use a name which links to the name of their master for whom they are a servant. The handmaid’s are essentially forced into a servant style life and they are forced into child-bearing service.

Peaky Blinders – This drama is set in 1920s post war Birmingham and follows the lives of the Shelby crime family. The first series aired in 2013 and it was recently announced that a fifth series has been ordered for broadcasting in 2019. Each series picks up where the previous one has left off. The show was called Peaky Blinders after the well-known Birmingham gang who used to sew razor blades into the peak areas of their caps.
Game of Thrones – Is an American fantasy drama which has been incredibly popular both as a book series and now as a television series. There are nine families of nobility who are all fighting over Westeros which is a mythical land.
