Unless you haven’t left the gaff and had the curtains closed and headphones on, you’ve probably notice that it’s been pretty windy outside, gusts up to 110km/h to be exact.


Storm ‘Doris’ has officially hit the country with drivers and people advised to take care, especially parking near water or under trees.

If you are planning on not venturing outside this weekend and staying indoors where it’s warm, we’ve made a list of things you should watch.

There are some new original shows in there, documentaries and some classics all newly added to Netflix this month.

Check them out below.

10. Birdman

9. The Theory of Everything

Starring Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones and David Thewlis, the Academy Award winning film has also just been added to Netflix.

If you haven’t watched it before we recommend getting on that asap. Although if you have it’s definitely worth watching again.

8. Santa Clarita Diet

The first season just dropped today on Netflix starring Drew Barrymore and she also was one of the executive producers.

I’ll be honest I have only watched the trailer for this, however I think we can all agree that Drew is just great. It looks interesting and funny, so fingers crossed it’s good.
