The Head

The Head is a six-episode survival thriller set in an isolated and inaccessible Antarctic research station in which winter has fallen on the South Pole, and the sun will soon disappear for the next six months. A small team, known as the Winterers, will remain at the Polaris VI Antarctic Research Station to continue their innovative research, a crucial part in the fight against climate change, under the command of renowned biologist Arthur Wilde. But when spring comes, summer commander Johan Berg returns to the station only to find the entire team are either dead or missing. A killer is on the loose, and Annika, Johan’s wife, is missing. If he wants to find her alive, he will have to trust Maggie, the young doctor who is profoundly shaken and apparently the sole survivor from the group… or, is there someone else?

Starring: John Lynch, Alexander Willaume, Laura Bach, Katharine O’Donnelly, Álvaro Morte, Tomohisa Yamashita

It’s A Sin

Set in 1981, Ritchie, Roscoe and Colin are young lads, strangers at first, leaving home at 18 and heading off to London with hope and ambition and joy… and walking straight into a virus that most of the world ignores. Year by year, episode by episode, crossing the whole decade, their lives change as the mystery of that illness starts as a rumor, then a threat, then a terror, and then something that binds them together in the fight. It’s the story of their friends, lovers and families too, especially Jill, the girl who loves them and helps them, and galvanizes them in the battles to come. Together they will endure the horror of the epidemic, the pain of rejection and the prejudices that gay men faced throughout the decade. There are terrible losses and wonderful friendships. And complex families, pushed to the limit and beyond. This is a series that remembers the boys we lost, and celebrates those lives that burned so brightly.

Starring: Olly Alexander, Omari Douglas, Callum Scott Howells, Lydia West, Nathaniel Curtis, Keeley Hawes, Shaun Dooley, Neil Patrick Harris, Stephen Fry, Moya Brady, David Carlyle, Neil Ashton, Tracy Ann Oberman, Ashley McGuire, Calvin A. Dean

Quick Thoughts: After decades of trying to sort out and process the trauma of living through his community dying horrifically from a deadly pandemic, Russell T Davies has put pen to paper. Shows about unfathomable tragedy, especially when they are rooted in such a deeply personal place, are always going to be hard to watch. I think though, we need to power through because people forget too easily. We forget that the people lost weren’t just statistics but vibrant lives snuffed out (Davies based many of the characters on people he knew). We start to forget that the cruelty and lack of care shown in our reaction is one of the great failures of humankind. This last year, I’ve seen people amazedly wonder how governments could just abandon people to get sick and die without a care. And with every one of these comments, there’s always a response from people who lived through the last one that they are not surprised at all.
