What we’re loving this week on Netflix
We’re not encouraging you to reduce your isolation period to a blurry, bleary, binge session. But if you find it preferable, like Sudha Nair-Iliades, to escape to a world of period drama, a conflict zone or a money-laundering haven, than sit through Trump’s irresponsible pronouncements, here is our watched and vetted choice for this week!
