Based on the novel of the same name by Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler’s Wife has been adapted into a six-part series by Steven Moffat.

The magical, time-bending love story is between Clare (Rose Leslie) and Henry (Theo James), traversing decades. 

Clare is fiery, clever and has had a secret imaginary friend called Henry since she was six years old. Over the years, Henry’s visits are dazzling adventures that break up the tedium of her childhood. 

Sky releases teaser for Succession series three

Following Kendall’s (Jeremy Strong) public betrayal of his father, Logan (Brian Cox), in series two’s explosive finale, the trailer sees the Roy family forced to take sides.

The number one criterion for the Roys has always been personal gain, and true to form, Shiv (Sarah Snook) is seen to be negotiating for the better deal.

Series favourites Tom (Matthew Macfadyen) and Cousin Greg (Nicholas Braun) also feature, and it seems the latter’s part in Kendall’s stunt has soured their already toxic friendship.
