There are new episodes of Top Of The Lake: China Girl, Twin Peaks and I Know Who You Are this week, as well as the finale of Dicte (sadly, I just haven’t had time to watch it this time around). There’s also a new four-part series starting on BBC One starring new Doctor Who, Jodie Whittaker, playing, well, a doctor. Look out for new radio series, A Smalltown Murder, too. And just a quick note, I’ve been on a short break for the past several days, so apologies for the lack of posts.
