Welcome to new BBC One series The Nest starring two of my favourites, Sophie Rundle of my adored Gentleman Jack and Martin Compston from Line of Duty and late of Traces.

I've been trying to hold onto this last episode of Happy Valley from the first series for as long as possible but I'm late with my newsletter and it's time to make amends.
