Stan

January is all about Romper Stomper, with the six-part series dropping on New Year’s Day. Another highlight? A new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars, which airs same time as the US. You’ll also have to look out for new episodes of Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams and three seasons of The Detour, while every episode of The Office (US) will get you through any New Year slump back at work.

Romper Stomper

This thrilling, bold and provocative 6-part series picks up on the prescient themes and story of Geoffrey Wright's 1992 classic movie, following a new generation of the activist right, their anti-fascist counterparts, and the multicultural fabric of a country each of them threatens to tear apart.
