Before we get into this one, we’ll be honest. We were a bit stunned to see how very little new content has been announced for BritBox in October 2021. This month brings just 4 new titles, only 2 of which are scripted content (and while both of those are wonderful shows, most long-time British TV fans will have seen them already). Hopefully, that means more will be added to the lineup at a later date – but this is what we know for now.

With the pandemic, fresh content has been harder to come by – but if you’re one of those people who switches back and forth from month to month, this may be a good time to take a look at Acorn TV’s October schedule

8 Out of 10 Cats returns to BritBox’s October lineup

8 Out of 10 Cats, Series 22

Jimmy Carr hosts this long-running comedy panel show that focuses on interesting statistics and polls. In this season, team captains are Rob Beckett and the Canadian comedian Katherine Ryan. The title of the series is based on the old Whiskas tagline that claimed “8 out of 10 owners said their cats prefer it”.

The remastered Brideshead Revisited premieres on BritBox in October 2021

Brideshead Revisited (Remastered)

Along with the 1995 Pride & Prejudice, the 1981 adaptation of Brideshead Revisited is widely considered one of the UK’s best literary adaptations of all time. Based on Evelyn Waugh’s 1945 novel and set between the 1920s and early 1940s, the miniseries stars Jeremy Irons and Anthony Andrews as Charles Ryder and Sebastian Flyte. Though Ryder has no money or social standing, he befriends the wealthy and eccentric Flyte at Oxford. The series follows their lives and the way they intertwine in the years between the wars.

Picture shows: Mattie Storin (SUSANNA HARKER) and Francis Urquhart (IAN RICHARDSON) in House of Cards

House of Cards Trilogy

Before it was an American series featuring the now-disgraced Kevin Spacey, House of Cards was a British series by Andrew Davies. It’s a story of greed, ambition, and corruption starring Ian Richardson (Dark City) as Francis Urquhart, the fictional Chief Whip of the Conservative Party. The series follows his schemes to get to the top of his party and become Prime Minister of the UK.

Can’t wait? Watch it HERE now. 

Is there anything on the schedule you’re looking forward to? Even though we’ve seen Brideshead Revisited a million times, we’ll definitely give the remastered version a watch to see how it looks.
