Christmas may be *whispers* around the corner, but November on Netflix UK isn’t all about festive cheer just yet.
There are some big TV hitters due to launch including Tim Burton’s Wednesday and anticipated fifth series of The Crown but, film-wise, things are looking in pretty great shape too.
The Wonder, based on the book of the same name by Emma Donoghue and starring actress of the moment Florence Pugh, gets its release as does Enola Holmes 2, with Stranger Things’ Millie Bobbie Brown back for a second mystery-solving caper.
Netflix continues to push its wealth of original content. Orgasm Inc: The Story of One Taste looks at the dark side of sexual wellness, and Lindsay Lohan is back in the rom-com hot seat starring in Falling For Christmas.
A lens also gets turned on convicted sex offender and former socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, with a documentary diving into her dark and disturbing past.
