Netflix. Amazon Prime Video. BBC iPlayer. NOW TV. Walter Presents. Apple TV+. There’s so much TV to watch these days in so many places that it can be hard to keep up. Every month, we boil down what’s on the box to the essentials you need in your streaming queue.

After October’s flurry of new series, November is the month when TV’s big-hitters come out at night, from BBC One’s His Dark Materials to Netflix’s The Crown. That, of course, is not to mention the launch of Apple TV+ with its own slate of original series, including Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston’s The Morning Show and – later this month – M Night Shyamalan’s Servant. With Jack Ryan and The End of the F***ing World also returning, there’s no shortage of things to fill those long, dark evenings.
