It’s been a quiet week with only 24 new additions – more than half of which are Netflix Originals. So it’s going to be a fairly short run down today!

This week we’ll start with the big TV additions on Netflix UK and the most popular addition has been all 6 series of 90s British sitcom Desmond’s. The show is set in barbershop owned by a charismatic British-Guyanese family which serves as a social hub for their diverse community in south London. Mike Flanagan brings us more horror this time with The Haunting of Bly Manor which is based on the classic novel The Turn of The Screw. Italian Original To the Lake follows a group who risks their lives, loves – and humanity – in a brutal struggle to survive after a deadly plague threatens to end civilisation. Finally for TV this week we have season 1 of the BBC comedy series Enterprice which sees two young entrepreneurs attempting to launch a new delivery service business try to overcome parents, girlfriends – and each other.

For films we have Now You See Me 2 which sees a group of illusionists, the Four Horsemen, take on a new member in order to carry out heists on banks. In Netflix FIlm Hubie Halloween Adam Sandler stars as Hubie, Halloween’s biggest fan but also a huge scaredy-cat, have to step up to save his town when things turn scary. And in Turkish drama Good Game: The Beginning a high school grad and avid gamer is recruited to an intense esports team that trains for a tournament with a life-changing prize.

If you enjoy settling down to a good documentary then there are a few additions for you this week including David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet – a biography of Sir David Attenborough that also takes a look at the future of our planet. A few episodes of Bad Boy Billionaires: India have been added (but not all, as Netflix are currently in court about one of them!). This series explores the greed, fraud and corruption that built up – and eventually brought down – India’s most infamous tycoons. And finally for documentaries we have Deaf U which sees group of Deaf and hard of hearing students share their stories and explore life at Gallaudet University.

For younger viewers this week we have season 2 of the action-packed Fast & Furious Spy Racers as well as a short Halloween special from Super Monsters with Super Monsters: Dia de los Monsters.
