Best of 2017… in TV (so far)

Baz Greenland looks at the last eight months of television and considers what has been the creme de la creme of 2017 so far...

2017 has been another great year for television, full of revivals, innovative takes on classic genre styles, mesmerising adaptations, award-winning performances and enough twists and turns to keep audiences on their toes for days on end.

In fact, TV is arguably so good at the moment, I could write 10,000 words about a whole host of programmes. The magnificence of Pearl Mackie’s Bill and Peter Capaldi’s Doctor in Doctor Who? The twists and turns of Line of Duty? The mind games of Sherlock? The harrowing moments of The Handmaid’s Tale? Or the brilliance of Better Call Saul that continues to prove that some TV spin-offs are worthy of being made?

Instead, I am going to focus on TV shows that I feel optimised 2017 television at its very best. The year is far from over, but what’s coming up over the remainder of the year will be hard pressed to beat this six fantastic shows…

Warning; there may be spoilers…
