Ground-breaking drama The Watchmen, set in an alternate history where masked vigilantes are treated as outlaws, arrives on Sky Atlantic. Return to the eighties and catch up with the Easmons - Idris Elba's semi-autobiographical comedy In the Long Run.

Mondays at 9pm
Regina King and Jeremy Irons star in an all-new, original story based in the alternative reality created, and largely destroyed, in Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon’s acclaimed graphic novel. In a world grieving from widescale tragedy, an outbreak of masked vigilantes causes conflict between civilians and law enforcement alike. Some want to keep the streets safe. Others are seeking the truth and will never compromise – not even in the face of Armageddon. Meanwhile, a being more god than man returns to Earth. And his presence does not bode well.
In The Long Run
Wednesdays at 10pm
We’re going back to the eighties – again – to catch up with the Easmons in the second series of Idris Elba’s semi-autobiographical comedy. We pick up with the East London family right where we left off; Walter has a lot on his plate as the new union rep at the factory, Agnes starts working full time to make ends meet, and Valentine struggles with his new job as a delivery driver. But while the adults are away, teen Kobna gets to play.
Landscape Artist Of The Year
Tuesdays at 10pm
Time to take it easel. We’re back on the search for Britain’s finest landscape painter. Expert judges – portrait artist Tai Shan Schierenberg, curator Kathleen Soriano and art dealer Kate Bryan – whittling down thirty-six new artists across six regional heats, taking place at stunning locations across the country. Whose brush will leave the judges breathless?
Who Killed Garrett Phillips?
Sundays at 9pm
This heart wrenching two-part documentary explores the case of 12-year-old Garrett Phillips, who was murdered in his home, in a small town in upstate New York in late 2011. Police quickly zeroed in on a suspect in this unthinkable crime: Oral “Nick” Hillary, a black man in the mostly white community, the soccer coach at Clarkson University and the ex-boyfriend of Garrett’s mother, Tandy Cyrus.
Who Killed Garrett Phillips? chronicles the five years following the murder, from the initial police investigation, the account of Garrett’s grief-stricken family as they relentlessly seek justice, and the arrest and numerous legal twists and turns that culminated in Hillary’s trial for murder, five years after the crime. The documentary raises troubling questions of racial bias and issues surrounding policing and the criminal justice system.
The Good Doctor
Tuesdays at 9pm
The doctors at San Jose’s St Bonaventure Hospital are back with new episodes of the hit, heart-filled drama. As we catch up with Dr Sean Murphy, he is recovering from what he believes was a disastrous first date with Carly. But onwards and upwards – he bounces back by proposing a radical surgery to save a newlywed woman’s life. Meanwhile, after the new chief of surgery, Dr. Audrey Lim, announces that the residents can lead surgeries, Dr. Morgan Reznick and Dr. Alex Park compete for the chance to operate on an elderly patient who has been diagnosed with cancer.
