GBBO is over *weeps*, but there is so much else to look forward to right now. Here are some of my recommendations and favourite programmes to fill the hole that bake off has left...
There's a reason everyone's talking about it. Seriously. So. Good. If you haven't seen it already - you need to!
It's the kind of programme that has you on the edge of your seat and you genuinely have no idea what's coming round the corner next. It's been on BBC1 recently, the first episode is still available on iPlayer, so get watching!

Orphan Black is a BBC drama/sci fi series that is based on a bunch of woman who are identical or clones. I've now watched the first two seasons twice (you can watch them on Netflix) and I'm so excited that the third season is here, I'm planning on watching the first episode of it after finishing this post. It's a brilliant series - I love the characters, the suspense, the humour, and the amazing performances of Tatiana Maslany. I would highly recommend this to almost anyone. It's a little slow to start, but once you get into it, you won't be able to get enough.
A Netflix series definitely worth a watch. I unashamedly watched this whole series in 2 days and then rewatched it in German. It's similar to Orphan Black in that it's a bit of a drama/sci fi series. The first couple of episodes are a bit confusing or hard to follow, but stick it out as it's something you can really get into, and chain watch the entire series without realising it's gone midnight and you have to be up in the morning. There is a good balance in this of everything a series should have, action, suspense, well placed humour and the characters are well developed meaning you can emotionally engage with the show. If you're looking for a new Netflix series, this may be your one!
What else? Well, Apprentice is back on soon, a new season of American Horror Story has just started, and there's been a new Sherlock advert *internally squeals*. SO MUCH GOOD TV. For lighter entertainment, there's also Gogglebox and Don't Tell The Bride on at the minute.
And there you have it, a quick rundown of some worthwhile series to watch and something for everyone. Now, go put your PJs on, grab some snacks, light a couple of candles and have a cosy night in with Netflix/iPlayer
