Here’s a little shout out to one of the best crime dramas of the year so far: Thirteen. It appeared shortly after BBC Three made the move to its new, permanent online home, and was a stunning five-part from new writer Marnie Dickens featuring Jodie Comer, Aneurin Barnard, Richard Rankin and Valene Kane that told the story of a young woman, breaking free of captivity after 13 years locked away..

Thirteen is currently the most requested show on BBC iPlayer in 2016 with 3m requests.That’s ahead of England v Wales at Euro 2016 which had 2.8m requests.

To date in 2016, BBC Three has seven of the top 20 most requested programmes of the year including Thirteen, drama Murdered By My Father (see our review of that here) with 1.8m requests and the first episode of Greg Davies comedy Cuckoo with 1.5m requests. Other shows to pass the 1m request mark includeStacey Dooley’s Sex In Strange Places, Life And Death Row, Reggie Yates The Insider and new BBC Three comedy Fleabag starring Phoebe Waller Bridge.

But Thirteen currently reigns supreme, which is brilliant going and testament to what a strong drama it was (and still is).
