13 fantastic miniseries to add to your binge-watch list

Sometimes the thought of tackling a TV series that has five or so seasons to its name can seem overwhelming.

13 fantastic miniseries to add to your binge-watch list

With a miniseries, you can quickly tick off a show without making a solid commitment.

Here are 13 fantastic miniseries that are perfect for a weekend binge:

Mildred Pierce (2011)

Starring Kate Winslet, Guy Pearce and Evan Rachel Wood, Mildred Pierce is a remake of the 1945 American film noir of the same name. If you’re a fan of old movies, we highly recommend watching the original film as well.

Great Expectations (2011)

It’s a story that’s been done to death, and is about to get yet another adaptation, but this version starring Douglas Booth and the wonderful Gillian Anderson is really very good.

Olive Kitteridge (2014)

Olive Kitteridge is an HBO adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name. Frances McDormand is brilliant as the title character, whose life we watch unravel.

Wolf Hall (2015)

Based on Hilary Mantel’s two Booker Prize-winning novels Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies, you’ll love this series if you’re fascinated by the Tudors. Plus it boasts some great talent, starring Mark Rylance, Damian Lewis and Claire Foy.

The Night Of (2016)

Crime dramas dominate this listicle, but who doesn’t love a bit of whodunnit? The Night Of follows Nasir Khan, who spends a perfect evening with a beautiful young woman, before tragedy strikes and his life is changed forever.

The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story (2016)

This dramatisation of O.J. Simpson’s ‘trial of the century’ is excellent. It will leave you wanting to know even more about the story, so our tip is to follow this up by watching documentary series O.J. Simpson: Made in America – it’s really, really good.

The Cry (2018)

Joanna and Alistair travel to Australia with their new baby to fight for custody of Alistair’s daughter. There, they face an unimaginable tragedy. We’d go so far as to say this will be one of the most gripping series you ever watch.

A Very English Scandal (2018)

This series depicts the ‘Thorpe Affair’ in which UK politician Jeremy Thorpe was accused of trying to have his former lover, Norman, murdered amid fears their homosexual relationship would be exposed and his political career ended. A second season covering a different scandal is currently in the works.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story (2018)

For those who aren’t familiar with the story of Gianni Versace’s murder, you’ll be fascinated by the twists and turns in this drama following serial killer Andrew Cunanan.

Patrick Melrose (2018)

Benedict Cumberbatch is truly excellent as Patrick Melrose, a man whose struggle to cope with childhood trauma leads him down a dark path of addiction.

Sharp Objects (2018)

Anyone who is a fan of author Gillian Flynn’s gripping thrillers will know that Sharp Objects is worth a watch. Amy Adams, Patricia Clarkson and Eliza Scanlen all deliver engaging performances.

Chernobyl (2019)

Another series that will have you lost in Google looking up the real life events. This depiction of the worst nuclear accident in history is seriously good viewing.

The Undoing (2020)

The Undoing has had everyone talking recently. We can’t reveal much about the plot of this mystery drama, so take our word for it when we say it’s worth watching.
