BritBox has an exciting collection of old and new coming in October. Jekyll and Hyde, The Bay, and more are arriving. Here’s a look at what you’ll get.

Want to see a young Michael Caine in a made-for-TV movie? How about check out a series like Broadchurch? That’s what you get on BritBox in October 2019.

There’s a good selection of content, depending on your interests. Of course, as is the case with BritBox most months, there’s a strong collection of British crime dramas. The first of those is Shakespeare & Hathaway Season 2, with Jo Joyner and Mark Benton returning in their titular roles. The two form the unlikeliest partnerships ever, but they’re successful in cracking the cases in their quiet and secretive town.

If you haven’t seen the first season yet, you’ve got time to catch up first. Season 2 won’t drop until Oct. 8.

Another noteworthy series is The Bay, which has been dubbed the next Broadchurch in the UK by the critics. The episodes will air weekly starting Oct. 22, so this is something to look out for in November, too. Morven Christie starts as Detective Sergeant Lisa Armstrong. Set in an English coastal town, she ends up on the case of two missing teens. When she realizes she has a personal connection to the mystery, she knows her life will never be the same. But will she be able to figure out the truth behind the mystery?

THE BAYWhen Detective Sergeant Lisa Armstrong is assigned to a missing persons investigation, at first it seems like any other. As a Family Liaison Officer, she’s trained never to get emotionally involved. But there’s something very different about this particular case. With horror Lisa realises she’s got a personal connection with this family; one that could compromise her and the investigation. As she grapples to get justice for the grieving family, Lisa discovers it could come at a cost.DAN RYAN AS DI Manning and MORVEN CHRISTIE as Lisa Armstrong

And then there’s Taggart, with Mark McManus back as DCI Jim Taggart. Seasons 9 to 11 are dropping on BritBox in October. Season 11 featured the last episodes with McManus in the titular character before he passed away.

For those who want something from the past (or just want a movie instead of a series), Jekyll and Hyde is the movie to look out for. Coming at the end of the month, it’s just in time for your Halloween viewing. Michael Caine stars as Dr. Jekyll, the kind-hearted scientist with the dark, alter-ego secret.
