    Sofa Sunday? Floored by flu? Long-haul flight? 

    Whatever the reason, here's a round-up of our favourite TV dramas to devour, start to finish. Just pick how long you have and settle in (snacks = mandatory).

    Sharp Objects – 4 hours 30 minutes

    There is literally no way you can watch just one episode of this dark thriller. Adapted from Gillian ‘Gone Girl’ Flynn’s first novel, Amy Adams stars as reporter Camille, who has to return to her suffocating hometown to cover the grisly story of a teenage girl’s murder.

    The Split – 5 hours

    Domestic dramas, cut-throat courtroom battles and simmering sexual tension - Abi Morgan, the screenwriter behind The Iron Lady and Suffragette, has created another fascinating female-centric story with this BBC drama about a family of London lawyers.

    Bodyguard – 6 hours

    No, not the 90s Whitney Houston film, the new Brit drama that had practically the entire country up every Sunday night with its adrenaline-fuelled, zeitgeist hitting plot line about a bodyguard (Richard Madden) protecting the Home Secretary (the magnificent Keeley Hawes) from terrorist threats. Or is he?

    Killing Eve – 6 hours

    Sometimes a TV show turns up that feels entirely new and really exciting. This is one of those gems. Jodie Comer (destined for great things) plays a very unusual assassin, with Sandra Oh as the detective who is obsessed with finding her. Calling it a cat and mouse crime thriller doesn’t do it justice – it’s weird, surprising and blackly funny, and totally addictive. Just watch it, trust us.

    The Night Of – 8 hours, 45 minutes

    The US version of Criminal Minds, it bagged loads of awards, and launched actor Riz Ahmed into the big time for a reason, playing a regular guy who finds himself in a nightmare situation - accused of murder. It’s smart, thought-provoking, beautifully shot, and keeps you on the edge of your seat to the very last scene.

    Top Of The Lake – 13 hours

    Loved Elisabeth Moss in Mad Men and The Handmaid’s Tale? Try this quirky New Zealand show written by Jane Campion. Moss plays a troubled cop, but the two mysterious cases she unravels are so complex and unsettling, it adds up to so much more than your average crime drama. Hugely atmospheric, a little bit eerie, with incredible performances from Moss and her season two co-star Nicole Kidman.

    The Good Fight – 20 hours

    Dare we say it, this spin-off show from legal favourite The Good Wife, may be even better than its predecessor. It follows lawyer Diane Lockhart (the brilliant Christine Baranski) who has to work her way back up to the top of her game after losing everything. Slick, fast-paced and just the right side of silly, it strikes the perfect balance between easy-watching and smart drama: 20 hours will fly by.
