Silence of the Lambs star Jodie Foster returns to the screen as another police woman on the case in the latest instalment of anthology series True Detective.
Police chief Liz Danvers (Foster) is called to a local research facility in her small town of Ennis, Alaska, to investigate the disappearance of eight of their lead scientists. Once at the scene, Danvers discovers a severed tongue belonging to an indigenous woman who was murdered several years prior.

Neil Morrissey (Men Behaving Badly) and The Inbetweeners' James Buckley play a father and son-in-law duo who happen across a stash of Saxon treasure.
When Ashley (Buckley) decides to indulge his future father-in-law's metal-detecting habit, they experience the moment all detectorists hope for: finding more than bottle caps. Ashley decides “finders keepers” and the two suddenly enter a life of crime together, trying to evade ex-con Rocky (Shane Attwooll, Legend) and local police officer DS Doyle, played by Wonka star Rakhee Thakrar.
The Artful Dodger
The Oliver Twist sequel Charles Dickens could never have expected.
Jack Dawkins aka the Artful Dodger (Thomas Brodie Sangster, The Queen’s Gambit) has tried to move on from his life as a pickpocket on the streets of London, as a surgeon living in one of Australia’s first colonies. But when his old surrogate-father Fagin (David Thewlis, Harry Potter) arrives in Port Victory, Jack is dragged back into his old life of crime.
Fortuitously-involved is Lady Belle Fox (Maia Mitchell, The Fosters) who uses her high-class status to get Jack to train her as a surgeon, which accidentally lands herself in a different social circle entirely.
Olivia Attwood: The Price of Perfection
Love Islander turned cultural detective Olivia Attwood is fresh off her explorations into online sex work in Getting Filthy Rich, and has set her sights on the growing trend of plastic surgery.
Exploring a different body part each episode, Attwood will speak to both cosmetic doctors and consumers to discover the range of procedures people go under the knife for, and the reasons why they do it. Attwood is no stranger to 'tweakments’ herself, and has already spoken publicly about some surgical regrets, so this docuseries is likely to be personal.
