After a relatively slow October on BritBox, November is picking up with a couple of brand-new British TV premieres. Most exciting? Probably Season 6 of Shetland and the British adaptation of The Cleaner.

The Cleaner (2021 UK Adaptation)
Greg Davies (The Inbetweeners) stars in this British adaptation of a hit German comedy, Crime Scene Cleaner (Der Tatortreiniger in the original German). In it, Davies plays Wicky, a crime scene cleaner who helps restore homes and properties to their original state after horrible crimes have occurred. Along the way, he comes into contact with people who own the properties, those who knew the victims – and sometimes the criminals themselves.
Season 1 includes well-known guest stars like David Mitchell (Peep Show) and Helena Bonham Carter (The Crown).

Chef's Whites (aka Whites on some services)

Which of the New Shows on BritBox Will You Be Watching in November 2021?
After such a long, pandemic-induced wait, we're thrilled to see Shetland returning to our screens – but if The Cleaner is even half as good as the German original, it should be great, too.
