As the weather gets worse, the likelihood of spending nights in watching TV is increasing by the day.

Luckily, thanks to Netflix, you don’t have to trawl through repeats of Only Fools and Horses and Top Gear anymore to find what you really want to watch this autumn.

Oscar-winning films Girl, Interrupted and A Separation are among Netflix’s movie highlights this month.

But if you’d rather burn the midnight oil watching a TV series, Doctor Who, Homeland and Fresh Meat have all been added to the on-demand streaming service.

Take a look at what’s new on Netflix UK in October:
