Is there anything better on a naff old rainy, windy day than a prime spot on the sofa and an addictively good TV box set? Of course there isn't!

But if you're anything like us, you've secretly hoped for bad weather on more than one occasion to watch a few more episodes.

If you can't get enough of great TV, we've picked our top 10 favourite box sets that you can binge watch to your heart's content NOW on Sky Box Sets...


Paul Giamatti and *potential James Bond* Damian Lewis star in this slick new drama set in the notoriously cut-throat world of finance. Lewis plays Bobby 'Axe' Axelrod, an ambitious hedge fund manager who's managed to escape his humble childhood to become a multi-millionaire...sadly, he's not reached such dizzying heights by being nice. Two words. Addictively good.

The Affair

Ohhhhh, with more scandal than, well, 'Scandal', we can't get enough of 'The Affair'. The actors are great, the concept is totally unique and there's something about the chemistry between British-but-pretending-to-be-American leads Ruth Wilson and Dominic West that has us hot under the collar.
