You could go outside. Break out your winter coat for the first time this year, wrap up against the chill and do the awkward no-after-you dance with a fellow human being on a narrow pavement. But really, is it worth the bother? Inside is where it’s really happening. Inside is where the television lives.

It’s the beginning of cosy season on UK TV. Brand new Taskmaster and The Great British Bake-Off begin our descent into the end of the year, weekly fixtures that will carry us (almost) all the way to Christmas.

And speaking of things ending, Ghosts series five, in which we bid farewell to Button House, is here, with new episodes arriving on Fridays at 8.30 p.m. on BBC One (and all available now to stream on BBC iPlayer). Tom Hiddleston is back too in Loki season two, with new episodes arriving weekly on Disney+. And it’s the final instalment in Mike Flanagan horror-verse The Fall of the House of Usher, is available now on Netflix, as is the long-awaited UK debut of critically acclaimed US Interview With The Vampire TV series, on BBC iPlayer now and streaming weekly on Thursday nights. All that, plus a new drama from Sir Lenny Henry in Three Little Birds, and new crime thriller Six Four making its broadcast debut on ITV1.

We’ll update this list of TV highlights weekly with more shows, dates and times as the release announcements arrive. If you’re based in the US, here’s where to look for the relevant info.
