So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix UK:

The first week of December has brought with it over 80 new additions to Netflix UK with a great mixture of Christmas specials, films new TV series and extra seasons of existing shows.

As we head towards Christmas we have had some new festive additions. 5 Star Christmas is an Italian Netflix Film which follows the comedic shenanigans of the Italian prime minister and his political rival, who happens to be his lover, as they meet in a hotel during Christmas Week.The Holiday sees Los Angeles resident Amanda and Londoner Iris decide to swap homes over Christmas to try get over their frequent bad luck with boyfriends. Love Actually has returned this week too – set in the run up to Christmas this British romantic comedy tells 10 intertwining stories that culminate on Christmas Eve. We also have the Christmas special for the comedy baking show Nailed It! Holiday! For the younger viewers there are a few Christmas specials: Super Monsters and the Wish StarFree Rein: The Twelve Neighs of Christmas and Oddbods: The Festive Menace. Remember, you can see all the Christmas TV and films available on Netflix UK by visiting:

There are so many films worth mentioning this week that we can’t fit them all in but the highlights include the return of The Big Lebowski which sees the comedic mess of events that follow when slacker Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski gets mistaken for a millionaire who is also called Lebowski. Another comedy film added this week is Don’t Think Twice which follows six improv comics as their progress careers due to one of the group getting a TV deal.

For fans of drama there is the prohibition-era film Gangster Land, the Malay crime film Crossroads: One Two Jaga and The Hurt Locker which is set during the Iraq War. A popular drama this week is the war film Journey’s End which is set in the trenches of France during World War I.

If action films are more your thing then there is the brand new Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle based on the classic Rudyard Kipling Jungle Book stories. The Netflix Film, by Andy Serkis, is darker than previous Jungle Book films and features the voice talents of Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch and more. Lord of War stars Nicolas Cage and follows a Ukrainian immigrant who goes from a two-bit thug to the world’s leading arms dealer. Finally for the action films Vin Diesel stars as Riddick where the titular antihero battles deadly aliens and mercenaries while waiting to be rescued.

Other films of note include The Little Mermaid (2018), About a BoyTraining Day and Wolf Creek.

A good number of TV shows have been added this week such as season 2 of mockumentary Borderline which is based in a fictional UK airport; the new German Original crime series Dogs of Berlin; the first season of comedy/horror series Ash vs. Evil Dead; new anime series HERO MASK; and season 1 of the American crime series Bad Blood.

For younger viewers there is the Aardman Animation Shaun the Sheep Movie – a spin-off from Wallace and Gromit. We also have the Easter favourite (yeah, I know…) Hop and animated adventure film Tad: The Lost Explorer.
