The series market just got a whole lot bigger: Dheepthika Laurent tells gives us her take on the début shows from Apple TV+ and Disney+ as they compete for an audience well-versed in Netflix and Amazon blockbusters.  We check out Series 3 of “The Crown”, as Olivia Coleman takes over from Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II; the Netflix hit has moved on to a more modern phase of the monarch’s reign, sparking some controversy in the process. Amazon releases a new series of “Jack Ryan”, with the action hero getting stuck into some highly topical political intrigue.


And we take a look at a German-language series which - although aimed at a younger audience- doesn’t shy away from some hard-hitting social issues.
