We take a look at the new Netflix series which retraces the steps of a true-life, cold-blooded killer in "The Serpent". Yena Lee tells us why actor Tahar Rahim is the major draw in this dramatisation of events in the 1970s that saw French murderer Charles Sobhraj jailed in Nepal. Meanwhile, it's a chilling return to Gilead for the fourth season of "The Handmaid's Tale", as we discuss the twists and turns that led to the rescue of June Osborne in the last season and Elizabeth Moss's critically acclaimed performance as the protagonist.


Our pick of the week is the second season of French series "Hippocrate" or "Interns", as Yena tells us just what makes the hospital-based drama so compelling and we discuss the topical issues it deals with.

And Polish series "Sexify" brings some comic relief, as a light-hearted ode to the pleasures of the bedroom.
