With the weather beginning to get chilly, lets thank BBC and Sky for some very dark late-night drama. Original crime drama Tin Star hits Sky Atlantic, whilst thriller Rellik will be hitting BBC One. It is very nice to see the return of David Mitchell and Robert Webb, who team up in new C4 comedy Back. Whilst comedian Russell Howard starts a new show on Sky1.
Back (Channel 4)

Funnymen and actors David Mitchell and Robert Webb are back together! Their new comedy Back, shows Stephen aiming to shine following the death of his father, known to many as a local legend. His previous successes have been a failed marriage, poor stint as a London lawyer and a very bad pub refurb.

Rellik (BBC One)

What makes a serial killer? Why will a cop continue determined and relentless until they're found? This will turn a serial killer story completely upside down. Rellik is from the makers of fellow BBC series The Missing.
Gabriel is a Met Detective - enigmatic, unrelenting and charismatic. He is on an obsessive hunt for a serial killer who left a mark on him both mentally and physically. The killer is caught before the drama moves backwards in time to the very beginning, the crime itself.
