The Walking Dead: Seasons 9 and 10

With a sizeable time gap (perhaps six years) since the end of season eight and with one of the major characters no longer in the show, things are very different and I found it a refreshing change to a show which was in danger of becoming very samey and dull. When I finished the 9th season, I couldn't wait to begin the 10th, so went straight on and thought it was excellent TV. Bring on season 11!

The Haunting of Bly Manor

Heavily influenced by Henry James's The Turn of the Screw (and The Innocents, Jack Clayton's brilliant 1961 film based on that novella), this is a really well made miniseries with some good jumps, superb performances, and intrigue. I didn't realise it was a second season of a show called The Haunting, so I'm now a few episodes into The Haunting of Hill House and really liking it so far. The links to Robert Wise's The Haunting (1963) and Shirley Jackson's novel The Haunting of Hill House are included cleverly and respectfully.
