The best new TV to stream next week – from The Recruit to Bad Education: Reunion | The Sun

From new documentaries to a comedy, and even a documentary here's what you should be checking out over the next seven days.

What's New

Bad Education: Reunion – BBC3

Long before there was Sex Education, there was Bad Education – the rude, crude and raucously funny comedy about spectacularly bad history teacher Alfie Wickers (Jack Whitehall) and his class of maladjusted misfits.

Now, eight years after the last episode aired – and 10 since the show first crashed on to our screens – it’s back for a one-off special, ahead of a forthcoming new spin-off series.

Featuring appearances from plenty of old faves like – now former – headmaster Shaquille (Mathew Horne), Chantelle (Nikki Runeckles), Joe (Ethan Lawrence) and Alfie’s beloved Rosie (Sarah Solemani), this is one school reunion you won’t want to miss.

Available Thursday

The Recruit – Netflix

Child star-turned-teen-idol-turned-action hero Noah Centineo (Black Adam, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before) ramps up his rugged side in this butt-kicking eight-part espionage thriller.

He stars as newbie CIA lawyer Owen Hendricks, whose first week at work is eventful, to say the least. Barely days into his new job, Owen becomes drawn into a dangerous game of cat and mouse when an incarcerated former CIA asset, Max (Laura Haddock), threatens to expose the agency’s most closely guarded classified secrets unless she’s exonerated for the crime that’s got her locked up.

Can Owen stop the potentially catastrophic data leak?
Bursting with edge-of-your-seat thrills, enjoyably cheesy one-liners and self-deprecating humour from Noah, if you like adrenaline-fuelled classic action movie-style adventure, The Recruit is definitely worth signing up for.

Available Friday

Bardo, False Chronicle Of A Handful Of Truths – Netflix

Celebrated Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu (The Revenant, Birdman, Amores Perros) directs this epic and experimental black comedy-drama that centres around an LA-based Mexican journalist, Silverio (Daniel Gimenez Cacho), who finds himself forced to question his life and work during a trip to his homeland.

While fans of Iñárritu’s work will find much to admire – it’s visually arresting and highly imaginative – if you’re looking for an easy popcorn movie to while away an evening, this isn’t it. In Spanish and English with subtitles.  

Available Friday

If These Walls Could Sing – Netflix

Since it was opened in November 1931, Abbey Road Studios in north London has welcomed some remarkable musicians.

Nearly all of The Beatles’ best-loved songs were recorded there, while the likes of Pink Floyd, Kate Bush, Radiohead, Oasis, Kanye West, Amy Winehouse and Adele have also laid down tracks within its iconic walls.

Now, Abbey Road is celebrated in this new documentary directed by Paul McCartney’s daughter Mary.

Featuring contributions and memories from Paul, Ringo Starr, Elton John, Cliff Richard and Noel Gallagher to name but a few, it’s a nostalgic and lovingly made tribute to a building where musical magic has taken place.

Available Friday

Dr. Seuss Baking Challenge – Amazon Prime

Got a soft spot for The Grinch? Can’t get enough of The Cat In The Hat? Fans of Dr. Seuss definitely need to check out this vibrant new baking show, in which nine teams of trained pastry chefs are challenged to create bakes based on his much-loved characters and stories.

Hosted by Tamera Mowry-Housley and judged by acclaimed pastry chef Clarice Lam and cake designer Joshua John Russell, there’s $50,000 up for grabs for the eventual winners.

And take it from us, some of the bakes have to be seen to be believed. Colourful cakey fun.

Available Tuesday

Vise Le Coeur – Acorn TV

France has produced some great crime dramas in recent times – hello, Spiral and Lupin – and now here comes another.

Vise Le Coeur, which translates as Aim For The Heart, follows courageous police captain Julia (Claire Keim, who’s a dead ringer for Jodie Comer), whose professional and personal lives are rocked when her former boyfriend and childhood friend Novak (Lannick Gautry) becomes the police chief with her squad.

Having not spoken to each other for 20 years, can the pair put their rocky romantic past behind them to solve some perplexing Parisian crimes?

Slick, pacey and armed with two charismatic leads, it’s a <magnifique> Gallic treat.

All Those Things We Never Said – Lionsgate+

Few countries do quirky romantic dramas better than France. And hands down, All Those Things We Never Said has to be one of the quirkiest, yet most heartwarming and moving, that our neighbours over the Channel have produced in years.

Told over nine episodes, the story introduces us to Julia (Alexandra Maria Lara), a woman in her early 40s who’s always had a difficult relationship with her controlling father Michel (played by the legend that is Jean Reno). Then, just days before her wedding – a wedding she fully expected Michel to miss – Julia receives a phone call, explaining that her father has died.

We’re treated to a funny, smart and gorgeously bittersweet study of grief, regret, love, hope and forgiveness. In French with subtitles.

Available Thursday
