TV weekly must watch

We’ve rounded up three great shows you should keep an eye out for this week.

Start with a comedy that looks at the friendship of two modern-day women, as well as all of their uncomfortable experiences and racy tribulations. Then watch Britain’s number one detective back in action – unafraid, unconventional and unmatched. Or follow a back robber who holds the visitors of an open house hostage and then promptly vanishes.

Insecure Season 5 continues to follow the two best friends as they evaluate their relationships, both new and old, to figure out who and what comes with them in this next phase of their lives. Binge it from December 29 on Showmax.

With her no-nonsense approach and scruffy appearance, we’ve followed Vera as she solves murder after murder in the northeast of England for years. Watch Vera season 11 now on BritBox.

Eight hostages at an open house, two dysfunctional police officers trying to solve the case and one bank robber that mysteriously vanishes … leaving the police baffled — and suspicious of everyone. Anxious People is based on the New York Times bestseller by Fredrik Backman. Watch it from December 29 on Netflix.
