Spoilt for choice this week, and probably for the rest of the month. I love September and the new season of tv shows.
Hunted (10 September – Channel 4, 9pm) looks like it could be brilliant. 14 ordinary people go on the run from a team of expert ‘hunters’ led by an ex-Head of Counter Terrorism for City of London Police. I guess they’ll have to go totally off the grid as it’s so much easier these days to track an individual using mobile phones and the internet. Slightly worried though as Channel 4 has a history of putting ordinary people into extra-ordinary situations, and sometimes that situation is Big Brother. If it’s good I predict viewers getting properly over-excited and yelling at the screen like we’re all suddenly espionage experts. And I will almost definitely be one of them.
Also looking forward to a one-off drama The Gamechangers (15 September – BBC2, 9pm). All I know is that it’s Daniel Radcliffe as the video game designer behind Grand Theft Auto. Looks like it could be pretty good. And many congratulations to Danny Radz on the fabulous facial hair. Hagrid would be proud.
