TV weekly must watch

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

Start with a rom-com that follows a hilarious blended South African family. Then watch a thrilling crime drama centred around a Marine Homicide Unit on the Scottish coastline. Or follow a struggling, single 39-year-old woman who opens a cat-themed café.

SA’s favourite funny and self-destructive families, the Sellos and Twalas, are returning for a sequel, How To Ruin Christmas: The Funeral. Beauty and Sbu have a wedding anniversary coming up and Lydia and Themba have their first Christmas as parents. There’s also a dark cloud hanging over the families as they celebrate their first Christmas without their beloved matriarch, Gogo Twala. As the bereaved family prepares to bury Gogo Twala, they come across challenges and later discover that Gogo Twala had secrets of her own. Watch it now on Netflix.

Detective Chief Inspector Annika Stranded has just become head of a new specialist Marine Homicide Unit, tasked with solving murders that take place in and around the waterways of Scotland.
