Love Netflix Originals? Well here’s our list of ‘Top Picks’ for this week. Check out the trailers below and let us know what you’re looking forward to this week -full list of this week’s additions and regional availability at the end of the post. Netflix aren’t always that clear about geographical availability so please bear with us as we try to be as precise as possible about where Netflix Originals will be available.

Kicking off our top picks this week is the new crime drama series ‘Delhi Crime’. Based on the events of what was dubbed the highly disturbing ‘Nirbhaya Case’ in 2012, the series covers true events in a fictionalised interpretation. A young woman and her friend are attacked on a private bus by six men. The attack was brutal beyond imagination and resulted in a movement, primarily of women, across the country that protested and campaigned in changes to the law and how it serves and protects women. Created by Richie Mehta, the series will consist of seven, fifty-minute episodes.
