8 Magnificent TV Shows You Might Have Missed In 2013

Time to play catch-up.

1. Fabulous Fashionistas.

Channel 4

A lively, inspiring and sometimes emotional documentary following six women who refuse to believe that you have to “dress for your age”.

Watch it here.

2. The Call Centre.

BBC3

Ostensibly a real-life version of The Office, this fly-on-the-wall documentary set in a Welsh call centre has a sweet backbone. Manager Nev’s eccentricities bumble their way into your heart.

3. Dates.

C4

“From the creators of Skins” paints a different picture to what this actually was - a smart, funny and sometimes complicated series about, well, a series of dates.

Watch it here.

4. Burton and Taylor.

BBC

Vampy and glamorous, this BBC retelling of the Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton love story was a gem. Dominic West and Helena Bonham Carter wallowed in the roles, making their scenes together electric.

5. The Fall.

BBC

A pacy crime thriller with Gillian Anderson (and Jamie Dornan - soon to play Christian Grey in 50 Shades…). Series two is coming in January 2014, so you’ve got time to catch up.

6. Top of the Lake.

BBC

With more than a touch of Twin Peaks, Top of the Lake was murky, creepy and mysterious. Elisabeth Moss’s Kiwi accent isn’t half bad either.

7. Southcliffe.

Channel 4

A brooding, almost suffocating four-parter, about a town in England coping with a spate of shootings. Also features Joe Dempsie (Game of Thrones, Skins).

Watch it here.

8. Welcome to the World of Weight Loss.

BBC

From acclaimed documentary-maker Vanessa Engle, Welcome… focuses gently yet unrelentingly on the weight loss journeys of a number of people - young and old. Sometimes sad, sometimes funny.
