This week, we get Happy Valley’s replacement – The Gold – on BBC One, which dramatises the famous Brink’s Mat robbery of the early 1980s. We also get a couple of good-looking crime dramas thanks to Walter (one from Canada, the other from Switzerland), and there’s the return of You – Netlix’s high-profile serial killer drama. Enjoy!
