Carnival Row (30 Aug)
In this lush fantasy series set in a kind of neo-Victorian city, faeries and other mythical creatures have been banished to live out their lives in the grimy, gritty, dark, neglected precinct called Carnival Row. This is where the human police detective Rycroft Philostrate (played by Orlando Bloom) has to venture to investigate a series of murders. It’s also where he discovers Vignette Stonemoss (Cara Delavingne), a refugee faerie, who holds secrets that can solve the murders. But when Rycroft and Vignette rekindle their forbidden love affair, they’re putting everything at risk… Carnival Row has already been given a second season, and we can’t wait to see how Season 1 fares.
