Killer Sally – 2 November
The true crime offerings are strong this month, and Netflix is kicking off with Killer Sally, a gripping new docuseries exploring bodybuilding’s most notorious scandal.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker Nanette Burstein (On The Ropes, Hillary), the series examines the case of Sally McNeil, a bodybuilder who fatally shot her husband Ray on Valentine’s Day 1995. While the prosecution argued it was premeditated murder, Sally claimed it was an act of self-defence after suffering years of abuse. A complex story examining domestic violence, gender roles and the world of bodybuilding, the series is all the more compelling for its interviews with Sally who tells her side of the story.
Blockbuster – 3 November
Set in the last remaining blockbuster store in the US, new sitcom Blockbuster follows Timmy Yoon (Randall Park), a hardworking manager and “analogue dreamer living in a 5G world” who is fighting to stay relevant and keep his employees happy in an increasingly challenging environment.

The much-anticipated sequel to the Millie Bobby Brown movie finds Enola Holmes up and running as a detective-for-hire like her infamous brother (Henry Cavill). As she takes on her first official case to find a missing girl, the sparks of a dangerous conspiracy ignite a mystery that requires the help of friends — and Sherlock himself — to unravel.
Orgasm Inc: The Story of OneTaste – 5 November
If the title of this new investigative documentary caught your attention, prepare to be reeled in hook, line and sinker by the premise. Orgasm Inc tells the story of OneTaste, a sexual wellness company that sprung from San Francisco’s tech bubble. It was hailed by top health and wellness outlets as a path to fulfilment, and gained global notoriety through the teaching of a practice called “orgasmic meditation”.
All that came crumbling down, though, when former members came forward with disturbing allegations about the organisation and its controversial, enigmatic leader. With 15 years of never-before-seen footage and interviews with former members, this new documentary pulls back the curtain on OneTaste’s dark underbelly.
The Crown season 5 – 9 November

Capturing The Killer Nurse – 11 November
Hot on the heels of the release of the chilling true crime drama The Good Nurse, which follows the story of a heroic ICU nurse who exposed the crimes of Charles Cullen, one of America’s most prolific serial killers, you’ll be fascinated by this spin-off. Featuring interviews with the nurses who blew the whistle on their co-worker, the detectives who cracked the case and audio from Cullen, the documentary traces the twisted path to his conviction.
As the film’s lead star Jessica Chastain told Stylist this week, it’s a story so unbelievable that she didn’t think it was real when she first read the script. And if you fancy reading up on the case, be sure to check out our interview with Amy Loughren, the real-life nurse who brought Cullen to justice.
