St Patrick's Day gets a lot of love, what with all the pub going and the Guinness drinking. In comparison, England's St George's Day tends to be a much more low-key affair, but there is a benefit to this: an evening free to catch up on some great TV.
To celebrate dragon slaying and all the other things that make our country great, we've put together a list of the best films and television shows from the UK available to watch on Netflix right now:
Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have both been heaped with praise for their roles as the dynamic duo of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, in stories that bring a modern twist to the classic mysteries.
Carey Mulligan has said that the movie industry is "obviously massively sexist".
The actress noted to Time Out London that it has taken a century for the story of the suffragettes to be made into a significant feature film.
"In terms of the amount of interesting roles there are for women it's obviously massively sexist," Mulligan said of the film industry.
"There's a lack of material for women. A lack of great stories for women."
She added of the delay in a film like Suffragette being made: "The mere fact that it's taken 100 years for this story to be told is hugely revealing.
"This is the story of equal rights in Britain and it took years of struggle and women being tortured, abused and persecuted, and it's never been put on screen.
"It's such a reflection of our film industry that that story hasn't been told yet."

Star-studded English-language dramas from Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, Denis Villeneuve, Justin Kurzel, Paolo Sorrentino and Matteo Garrone will vie for the Palme d’Or alongside new films by Valerie Donzelli, Jacques Audiard, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Jia Zhangke at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup on Thursday.
While there are only two U.S. directors in competition — Haynes with “Carol,” a 1950s lesbian love story starring Cate Blanchett, and Van Sant with his suicide drama “The Sea of Trees,” pairing Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe — this year’s Palme race looks to feature more high-profile Hollywood talent than any in recent memory. Canada’s Villeneuve (“Prisoners,” “Enemy”) will bring his Mexican drug-cartel drama “Sicario,” with Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin, while Australia’s Kurzel (“The Snowtown Murders”) secured a Palme berth for “Macbeth,” his Shakespeare adaptation toplining Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. »

Check it out below after the official synopsis…
“Suffragette” is a moving drama that will empower all who are striving for equal rights in our own day and age. The stirring story, inspired by the early-20th-century campaign by the suffragettes for the right of women to vote, centers on Maud (played by Carey Mulligan), a working wife and mother who comes to realize that she must fight for her dignity both at home and in her workplace. Realizing that she is not alone, she becomes an activist alongside other brave women from all walks of life. The early efforts at resistance were passive but as the women faced increasingly aggressive police action, the suffragettes »

The election cycle here in Blighty is in full swing, so it seems the right time to look back at a much more vital and impassioned part of political history, the Suffragette movement. A teaser trailer for Sarah Gavron’s Suffragette is now online. Boasting quite the cast – Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan, Helen Bonham Carter, Romola Garai, Anne-Marie Duff, Brendan Gleeson and Ben Whishaw among them – Suffragette follows the struggles of suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst (Streep) and the campaigners around her, who lead an early feminist movement to get equality in voting at a time when women were considered ill-mannered to vote. While their cause was just, it was also not an easy thing to try to turn the giant iceberg that was British politics at the time. The personal cost was great, but the results speak for themselves. It’s just a quick look at this point, but with that cast, »
Eager to strike while the hot-button topic steals the headlines in the UK ahead of the general election on May 9, Focus Features has debuted the first teaser for political drama Suffragette, which sees Carey Mulligan and Meryl Streep taking a stand for women’s rights during the early 1900s.
As a matter of fact, the studio has even gone so far as to incorporate the marketing for the real-life drama with the #VotingMatters campaign, intertwining the old with the new. Not only that, with close to 9 million women not taking part in the vote in 2010, there’s greater impetus to attract more to the polling stations on this occasion, and Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane) will be hoping to offer up a hard-hitting perspective on the matter through her cinematic analogy.
Following Mulligan’s feminist Maud, a hard working mother, the film will orbit around her realization that she must take »

Film 4 has released the first Suffragette trailer online. Written by Abi Morgan (Shame) and directed by Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane), the film stars Carey Mulligan as a working-class women’s rights activist in the early days of the feminist movement. As you can see from this trailer, this isn’t just marching with signs. This is throwing rocks and getting hardcore when it comes to fighting for voting rights. It’s an encouraging trailer because it looks like it will get to the nitty-gritty of the suffragist movement rather than just ladies marching around with signs. Check out the Suffragette trailer below. The film opens October 23rd, and also stars Helena Bonham-Carter, Brendan Gleeson, Anne Marie Duff, Ben Whishaw, Meryl Streep. Here’s the official synopsis for Suffragette: Suffragette is a thrilling drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were »

Directed by Sarah Gavron, the cast includes, but isn't limited to Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Romola Garai, Ben Whishaw, Brendan Gleeson, Anne-Marie Duff and Samuel West. Here's the official synopsis: Suffragette is a thrilling drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they »

It seems that Christoph Waltz is sticking to his story. On the very day that the cast for Spectre was officially unveiled, actor Christoph Waltz revealed that his character was called Franz Oberhauser, despite many believing he would play the classic Bond villain Blofeld. Since then he has denied playing Blofeld several times, but since the release of the first teaser trailer many fans are sure that his character is indeed super spy’s arch nemesis.
In an interview with GQ, Waltz was once again asked if he is playing Blofeld to which he responded, “That is absolutely untrue. That rumour started on the Internet, and the Internet is a pest. The name of my character is Franz Oberhauser.”

Of all the things to stop James Bond dead in his tracks, a small knee injury wouldn’t be the first obstacle to come to mind. Nevertheless, following an on-set accident back in February, MGM has confirmed that star Daniel Craig underwent minor knee surgery during a scheduled Spectre break to correct said injury. He is human, after all!
Here’s what a spokesperson had to say about the incident, which won’t have any impact on the film’s production schedule.
“During a scheduled break, Daniel Craig had arthroscopic surgery to repair his knee injury. He will rejoin production on April 22nd at Pinewood.”
Craig first sprained his knee whilst filming an action scene at England’s famous Pinewood Studios, though this didn’t affect Spectre‘s European shoots that followed, as it’s understood the actor didn’t miss any days of filming as production switched to Rome »

Seemingly always under a perpetual black cloud during production, Spectre has experienced another small set back. Daniel Craig is said to have sprained his knee in early February while shooting an action sequence on set at Pinewood Studios. He had to undergo knee surgery this weekend, though Eon Productions says it was a 'minor procedure'. The actor was flown to New York for the surgery during Easter break.
