  • Like most new British drama over the last ten+ years, I've never seen Peaky Blinders, so that's something else parked and something to look forward to in the future.

  • I don't have Sky Atlantic, so I will find that 2nd series of Raised by Wolves "elsewhere". That first series was certainly interesting.

    If my post is in this colour, it is a moderator decision. Please abide by it.

  • Yes, I add the Sky Atlantic shows for those Virgin viewers with Now TV.


    I don’t think you will be able to view this elsewhere just yet unless you have a VPN, although it might be available on Virgin Media Store. However, at those prices, you would be better subscribing to the Now TV Entertainment Pack for a month to binge watch a few SA series. There are some good programmes on there!

    If my post is in this colour, it is a moderator decision. Please abide by it.

  • Season 2 in 1080p is available from the "elsewhere" 8 episodes: 23.8 GBytes.

    History is much like an Endless Waltz. The three beats of war, peace and revolution continue on forever.

    The Time Traveller’s Wife

    Imagine you have a genetic disorder that has you whisked off occasionally to a different time-zone. Trouble is, your clothes don’t come with you, so you arrive at your destination completely starkers. Star Trek would have been made a lot more interesting if that happened when they were beamed up!
