Looking to indulge in some cracking comedy? Stephen Graham and Danny Mays team up in the bionic cop buddy comedy Code 404, while award-winning actress and writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge returns with comedy drama, Run.

All episodes of Gangs of London are available to stream on Sky Atlantic with NOW TV from Thursday, March 23.

What’s it about?

The action-packed thriller is set among the international gangs that control present-day London. For 20 years, Finn Wallace (Colm Meaney) controlled a criminal organisation that saw billions of pounds move through his network. Then he’s murdered and nobody wants to own up to it.

As rivals scramble to make the most of this unexpected opportunity, it’s up to Finn’s son Sean (Joe Cole) to take over the family business.

Why watch it?

Created by Gareth Evans, the award-winning filmmaker of The Raid film franchise, and his creative partner Matt Flannery, the nine-part series brings cinematic action to the small screen in what promises to be an epic saga.

The series revolves around two Detective Inspectors, DI John Major (Mays) and DI Roy Carver (Graham), who are the top crime fighting duo in the Unit. But when an undercover sting goes horribly wrong, Major is gunned down on the job and killed… or is he?

Why watch it?

You'll probably recognise both leading actors from their dramatic roles in TV shows such as Line of Duty and The Virtues, but you'll see a different side to these British stars in Code 404.
