At a time when many summer holidays have been cancelled, BBC four-part drama Us promises to take viewers on a grand tour of Europe.

Tom Hollander stars in the adaptation of David Nicholls’ novel about a man who is blindsided when his wife, played by Saskia Reeves, tells him their marriage is over. Agreeing to still go on their planned family holiday, he vows to win her back and repair his troubled relationship with their son Albie, played by Tom Taylor.

Series director Geoffrey Sax speaks with Michael Pickard about filming across Europe, how the drama completed post-production during the coronavirus lockdown and the challenges series set in multiple locations might face in a post-Covid world.

Filming got underway once again on the 10th season of BBC crime drama Death in Paradise in July, becoming one of the first British television series to restart production following the coronavirus-enforced shutdown.

Executive producer Tim Key and Red Planet Pictures joint MD Alex Jones speak with Michael Pickard from the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, where the series is made, and reveal the steps they took to ensure cast and crew remain safe and healthy during the six-month shoot and how they think the industry may change.

From the creator of award-winning Northern Irish sitcom Derry Girls comes The Deceived, a four-part series for the UK’s Channel 5 that blends horror and psychological drama to tell the story of a university student who falls in love with her married lecturer, before a shocking death leaves her in a world where she can no longer trust her own mind.

Director Chloë Thomas, whose credits included ITV/Hulu drama Harlots, speaks with Michael Pickard about the making of the series, from finding inspiration in Alfred Hitchcock and filming in Belfast to casting Normal People breakout star Paul Mescal and working with crew from Game of Thrones crew on some extraordinary stunts.
