Here’s What’s Coming To BritBox in May. Queue Justin Timberlake because it’s gonna be May! This is shaping up to be a fantastic month of British programming.

Coming to BritBox this month is the new Series, ‘After The Flood‘. I’m looking forward to more MacDonald & Dobbs and Here We Go. Are there any BritBox titles that you are looking forward to?

The big thing to look forward to is After The Flood. After the Flood is a mystery thriller set in a town hit by a devastating flood. When an unidentified man is found dead in a lift in an underground car park, police assume he became trapped as the waters rose. As the investigation unfolds, PC Joanna Marshall, played by Sophie Rundle, becomes obsessed with discovering what happened to him and why? The mystery unfolds across the series while we also see the real impact of climate change on the lives of residents in this small town. The floods threaten to expose secrets, and fortunes and reputations are at stake. But how far will people go to protect themselves?
