If you’re missing David Hyde Pierce and Bebe Neuwirth from the Frasier reboot, they reunite for the second season of the joyous Julia, which premieres with a triple-episode on November 17.

The charming dramatisation of Julia Child’s life, starring Sarah Lancashire as “The French Chef”, continues with her visiting France to catch up with fellow cookbook scribe Simca Beck while wrestling with the pressures of success on her marriage.

Another of America’s TV sweethearts, Mary Tyler Moore, features in an acclaimed HBO documentary about her life, Being Mary Tyler Moore, which streams from November 1.

It’s part of a Documentary Spotlight season that includes Donyale Lunas: Supermodel (November 7), The Golden Boy: Oscar De Le Hoya (November 12) and:
