I accessed Netflix only recently. "The Queen's Gambit" is very watchable. Also "Unorthodox", which lift the veil on the lives of women in extreme Jewish groups. It's not all one way as you get hints of why the men behave as they do.
BBC channel one on BBC iplayer. "The Terror" is completely gripping on the disappearance of two Royal Navy ships, The Terror and Erebus with their entire crews in the Arctic ice on the doomed expedition to find the North West passage in I845.

If you don't mind a lot of swearing, "Great" on All Four is a blackly hilarious account of Katherine the Great's efforts to achieve power in Russia by getting rid of her hopeless husband.

There is a series (3 part) called 'Don't f***with Cats" on Netflix which is gripping and so well made and addictive. I'll not give details less I spoil it but well worth watching.

I watched Rocket Man, the film about Elton John, last night and found it very different and enjoyable. It’s on Netflix.
