Watch These Departing Netflix Movies Before They Disappear

Each month, Netflix adds a bunch of third-party TV shows and movies to augment its original content. But what it gives with one hand, it invariably takes away with the other.

Here are all the titles that will be disappearing over the next few weeks. You've still got a few days to watch our personal recommendations - check 'em out while you still can!

The following list - which comes courtesy of New On Netflix - consist of movies and TV shows that Netflix pays a licencing fee for. (All Netflix Originals are safe for the time being.)

The good news is that Netflix appears to have revised its 'scorched earth' policy - there are only 21 titles leaving the service this month, compared to more than 130 in March. With that said, you can expect more titles to be quietly removed before the month ends. (Look out for an update in the last week of April.)

Here are all the movies and TV shows that are currently on the chopping block. We've included the expiration dates so you know precisely how long you have to watch them and trailers to our personal recommendations.

Movies leaving Netflix in April

If you've only got time to watch a few of these movies, we'd go for the Brad Pitt-starring WW2 action flick Fury, the cheesy-but-fun Pacific Rim and the classic '70s western Jeremiah Johnson (that overused GIF of Robert Redfern smiling and nodding comes from this movie, trivia fans.)

  • Casanova - April 30
  • The Driver - April 30
  • Elizabeth I: The Virgin Queen - April 30

    I highly recommend Broadchurch - I just managed to finish it before it ends (although my Netflix says it's leaving on 21 April, not 16 April). Excellent British crime drama starring David Tennant, Olivia Colman and Jodie Whittaker (two of whom have played the Doctor!).

    Broadchurch is an amazing mystery/detective drama if you're a fan of that sort of thing. While the first season is probably the best, the whole series is definitely worth the watch. Take it from me, it's usually at this point in an internet comment I go 'nah, f*** it' and delete it...

    Another vote for Broadchurch here.

    And if you're a Tennant fan, absolutely watch Casanova. It's fantastic (oh so slightly twisted) and the role that landed him that of the Doctor. :)
