A feast for the eyeballs! That’s what the UK’s new TV drama (shows returning for another series will follow in a separate post) output looks like for 2024 – a year of thrills, chills and laughs, from supernatural escapism to immersive historical dramas, true stories brought to life, and plenty to feed Britain’s current crime thriller obsession.

Here’s a flavour of what 2024 holds for your TV: book adaptations include a new imagining of Ian Rankin’s Rebus detective stories, a scandalous adaptation of Jilly Cooper’s iconic novel Rivals (starring David Tennant) and a fresh version of David Nicholls’ romance One Day

There’s high-stakes action in thrillers like Red Eye, Black Doves and Nightsleeper, and you can transport yourself back in time to discover the lives of a notorious eighties jewel thief in Joan, sinister Jacobean power play in Mary and George, or the hard-hitting Holocaust story The Tattooist of Auschwitz.

Or escape reality entirely with Neil Gaiman’s folklore fantasy Anansi Boys, zombie comedy Generation Z, Michael Sheen’s dystopian drama The Way, or watch Jeff Goldblum as Zeus in modern mythology drama KAOS. And all that’s only scratching the surface of this year’s British drama delights.
