    There's some variable weather forecast this bank holiday weekend so at some stage there may be that opportunity to catch up on that TV series you have been promising to do so for ages.

    At the same time you may have exhausted your pipeline of shows and are in desperate need of some inspiration.

    Here's 5 shows that come highly recommended by the Douglas Scott team.

    A sleepy town is rocked by the murder of popular high school student Jason Blossom. As secrets emerge about his life, his perfect, polished family start to fall apart at the seams and no-one is safe from their quest for vengeance.
