Stop what you're doing, we've found you another spectacular Netflix series to binge.

The mini-series created by the BBC stars David Tennant as a priest and Stanley Tucci as a death row prisoner ⁠— gripping, right?

Check out the trailer for the new series here:

If that's not enough to make you turn your telly on right now, the rave reviews might.

So, the 2022 series dropped on Netflix on Monday, 31 October, AKA the spookiest day of the year. It is also available to watch on BBC iPlayer.

And the subject matter was plenty chilling because the series sees: "A prisoner on death row in the US and a woman trapped in a cellar under an English vicarage, cross paths in the most unexpected way."

To be honest, that synopsis has us completely hooked, and it's not just because we think Tennant and Tucci are two of the most talented actors in recent years.

Also, the series was created by Steven Moffat, who came up with some of our favourite Doctor Who episodes of all time.

Though, just in case you needed a little more convincing, it's had some pretty rave reviews, with people taking to Twitter to share their love for the series.

"Inside Man is such a good show it has me up 5 hours before I have to wake up," one said, while another said it sent their heart racing: "Inside Man is a great show. It’s beautifully crafted, directed, acted, music is used amazingly.

"I just can’t understand how anybody could dislike it. If you haven’t watched it, I encourage it so highly. Stars David Tennant, on BBC iPlayer and only 4 episodes. Heart is still racing."

But, others said that the plot needed work: "The Inside Man on Netflix is good but also very annoying. The plot is purposefully trying to trigger the viewers. The whole thing could’ve been avoided."

While another claimed that the whole thing was ridiculous, but like most of us, they were happily going to watch it anyway: "#InsideMan is the dumbest, most unrealistic ridiculousness I’ve ever seen lol There’s so many reasons none of that even had to happen. That being said it’s kinda entertaining lol."

Another just wanted the characters to talk to each other: "I just want everyone in this series to communicate better wtf! I can’t stand watching things that intentionally leave out basic communication to solve problems.

"It’s every scene! It’s unrealistic at this point. I’m on episode 3 and I’m getting irritated but still."

But, to be honest, it is some of the best series that have you shouting at the screen, right?
