Londonist Stays In

It’s a beautiful sunny February, and we’re back after a brief hiatus. The American writer’s strike has just been resolved, which means our American favourites will be back on our screens before too long, but until then here are a few things you may want to take a peek at.

On TV, Londonist likes:

Monday, 11 February

City of Vice (Channel 4, 21:00-22:00) The series looking at the creation of the modern police force in Georgian London finishes this week, as the Magistrates look to get rid of the Mooney gang. If you haven’t been watching this series, this is your last chance to appreciate that, although London today may be crime-ridden, but it certainly could be worse.

Savile Row (BBC4, 21:00-22:00) If vice ridden cities aren’t up your alley, this documentary on London’s poshest tailoring street may be a better choice. Did you know there were rules and regulations that define exactly what a Savile Row tailor is? Well, there are and changes in them are wreaking havoc.

Wednesday, 13 February

Project Catwalk (Sky One, 21:00-22:00) We’re loving the current series following the designer wannabes trying to make it to the top. Kelly Osbourne guides the designers through the mayhem of the London fashion world, and this week they’re designing for charity. We love a bit of catty sniping, and this group never fails to deliver.

Thursday, 14 February

Trial and Retribution (ITV1, 21:00-22:00) Just what you want for Valentine’s Day. A cheery drama about an East London man recently released from prison trying to track down the man responsible for the crime he was jailed for. If you’re not having a day of hearts and flowers, this may be just what you’re looking for.

Football Hurts (Nuts TV, 21:00-21:30) Yes, there is a Nuts TV. Who knew? This programme follows the trials and tribulations of AFC Wimbledon over the course of the season. If you’re a football fan (and we’re sure some of you are) then you may want to check out this behind-the-scenes look at the beautiful game.
