A week on from its debut, it's fair to say that highly anticipated video game adaptation Fallout has been a huge hit, both with fans of the game and newcomers alike.

The show's cast is led by Ella Purnell, who plays Lucy MacLean, a vault dweller from Vault 33 who has lived a life of relative luxury compared to the rest of the people in post-apocalyptic America.

It comes from Westworld creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, and is just one of the new releases this month, while the likes of Alex Rider season 3 and THEM: The Scare are also on the way.

They will join a number of major additions to the library of late, including the second seasons of Invincible and Reacher, as well as Mr & Mrs Smith, Expats and Red Queen.

We also can't forget the Rachel Weisz-led psychological thriller Dead Ringers, edgy The Boys spin-off Gen V or the fifth season of the acclaimed Fargo, either, which are all ready to stream, as well as Western series The English, which previously aired on BBC Two.

Meanwhile, there are plenty of acquired series available to stream on the platform, including Downton Abbey, Bad Education and Freaks and Geeks.

If you need inspiration for navigating Prime Video's vast library, we're here to help, picking the best titles you can find on the streamer and updating this list with new entries every week.

So, without further ado, here are the top titles on Amazon Prime Video for UK viewers.

    After a classic bout of unlikely car selections, the meandering odyssey is interrupted by horses, “Soviet-style Formula One”, a superstar racing driver and an ambush by deadly archers, before arriving at a climax with pretensions to rival the Fast and Furious film franchise. Rumours persist that Clarkson’s days on Prime Video are numbered, but he and his pals have already filmed another special: they’ll soon have sand in their carburettors as they race across Mauritania.

    Summary:

    Standing out from - or rather above - the crowd inspires terror and awe in a darkly comedic coming-of-age story written and directed by Boots Riley. Nineteen-year-old Cootie (Jharrel Jerome) has been raised by his aunt Lafrancine (Carmen Ejogo) and uncle Martisse (Mike Epps) in Oakland, California since he was an oversized baby. Now 13 feet tall, Cootie has never left the family home but he is intensely curious about the outside world where a mogul called Jay Whittle (Walton Goggins) has brought his self-created crusader of justice, The Hero, vividly to life to combat crime. Cootie breaks out of his shelter and shocks the outside world with his gargantuan size, embarking on a belated joyride through adolescence in the company of fun-loving neighbours. Unfortunately, Cootie's unusual size sows seeds of fear and Whittle weaponises The Hero to strike down a real-life miracle that challenges his status as the only superhuman in the city

    Why watch I'm a Virgo?:

    From the brilliantly creative mind of Boots Riley – who wowed critics with his debut feature Sorry to Bother You – I’m A Virgo is a coming-of-age story like no other.

    Jharrel Jerome follows acclaimed performances in Moonlight and When They See Us with this offbeat project, where he plays a 13-foot tall 19-year-old named Cootie. He has always been hidden away due to his enormous stature, but leaps at the first opportunity to experience the world – including a meeting with his idol, known simply as The Hero (played by Walton Goggins).

    Critics have praised the show’s satirical commentary and unique visual style, while the performances are stellar across the board. Jerome and Goggins are joined by Mike Epps (The Upshaws), Carmen Ejogo (True Detective), Brett Gray (On My Block) and Kara Young (The Staircase).

    Summary:

    Suddenly and without warning, teenage girls are blessed - or cursed - with the ability to electrocute their surroundings. Otherworldly thriller based on Naomi Alderman's award-winning novel starring Toni Collette, John Leguizamo and Auli'i Cravalho

    Why watch The Power?:

    Based on the New York Times bestselling novel by Naomi Alderman, this fantasy series imagines a world where women suddenly become capable of firing electrical charges through their fingertips. The story follows several characters from across the globe, all of whom are profoundly affected as a new world order begins to take shape.

    While perhaps not as impactful as the source material – few screen adaptations are – The Power is an intriguing concept through which Alderman explores society’s attitudes towards gender.

    Meanwhile, the cast is a mix of established names like Toni Collette, John Leguizamo and Eddie Marsan as well as emerging talent including Chloe Auliʻi Cravalho, Heather Agyepong and Ria Zmitrowicz – all of whom bring their A-game to this exhilarating story.

    Why watch Dead Ringers?:

    You wait ages for a TV remake of a controversial Jeremy Irons movie, then two come along at once: as well as Netflix’s Obsession, we have this bold re-imagining of the 1992 film where Jeremy Irons played identical twin gynaecologists. Now the twins are Rachel Weisz, playing flamboyantly unpredictable sisters (“If I’m a psycho, you’re a psycho!”) in a show that’s much more about fertility, motherhood and how society views women than the original film was. As a torrent of garish images and nightmarish ideas unfurls, Weisz visibly relishes the liberation of a daring double role.

    Summary:

    Eighteen years after he completed his tour on the bridge of the USS-Enterprise-E as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: Nemesis, Sir Patrick Stewart reprises his signature role. Retired Starfleet Admiral Picard is still haunted by the death of loyal android Data 15 years ago. The destruction of Romulus sends shockwaves through the universe and propels Picard on a daring new mission: to protect a young woman called Dahj and unravel a mystery connecting the Borg and the Romulans.

    Why watch Star Trek: Picard?:

    Few fans of the Next Generation felt that the crew got the farewell they deserved in 2002 box-office bomb Star Trek: Nemesis. But two decades on, that wrong is finally being righted.

    Because, for the first time since that damp squib of a send-off, Jean-Luc Picard’s (Patrick Stewart) former officers are reuniting as they take on a valedictory mission that feels very much like a Next Gen love letter. It’s also – it must be said – something of a necessary recalibration for the Picard spin-off itself, which has, up until now, been struggling on impulse power.

    Seasons one and two remain available on Prime Video, but this third (and final) run is a standalone adventure that gives aficionados the chance to warm themselves in the glow of nostalgia, as we catch up with the likes of empathetic Dr Crusher, the burly Riker and Klingon warrior Worf.

    A group of warriors are tasked with saving the world from an evil group of dragons known as the Chroma Conclave. Animated adventure, with voices from Laura Bailey, Taliesin Jaffe, Ashley Johnson and Matthew Mercer

    Why watch The Legend of Vox Machina? :

    If watching the Stranger Things gang play Dungeons & Dragons has given you an interest in the real thing, The Legend of Vox Machina would be a great way to learn more about the fantasy role-playing game. This is an animated retelling of a real campaign originally played on popular web series Critical Role, which follows a ragtag group of adventurers as they seek to avenge murders committed by the evil Lord and Lady Briarwood.

    In the recently launched second season, Vox Machina is faced with saving the world once again – this time, from a sinister group of dragons known as the Chroma Conclave. Expect adult humour along the way as well as big name guest stars, including David Tennant (Doctor Who), Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Indira Varma (Obi-Wan Kenobi), Ralph Ineson (Willow) and Henry Winkler (Barry).

    Summary:

    When the crew of the Kinloch Bravo find themselves cut off from all communication with the Scottish mainland by a mysterious fog, they must fight to find a way home whilst managing environmental pressures, mounting paranoia and rising tensions. But as the threat facing them reveals itself to be something beyond their wildest imagination, the divided crew must form an alliance to ensure survival.

    Why watch The Rig?:

    While this new action thriller has been heralded as many things, one thing’s for certain – it’ll certainly keep viewers intrigued till the very end.

    The series, which is led by Line of Duty’s Martin Compston, is an exhilarating drama centred on the crew of the Kinloch Bravo oil rig. As a mysterious fog descends on them, though, they all struggle to keep themselves together and soon, questions of ecology and our relationship with the planet start to rear their head. While it’s been likened to BBC’s Vigil (on account of the similar claustrophobic setting), we say that it’s a sci-fi thriller that has notes of Doctor Who about it.

    Why watch The Devil's Hour?:

    With the release of this supernatural thriller from executive producer Steven Moffat, Prime Video invites audiences to ask the question – what exactly is The Devil’s Hour?

    With a season premiere that features abstract imagery and a cavalcade of sensory assaults, the series never proves to be an easy watch. Five minutes in, Lucy (Jessica Raine) and Gideon (Peter Capaldi) are captured conversing in a blacked-out room. She is pale, bruised and defiant in the face of her interrogator who sits opposite, handcuffed yet commanding. Exposition is limited and other storytelling staples are thin on the ground, making this show almost impossible to pin down for audiences seeking context.

    Summary:

    After she very narrowly survives a serious car accident, a woman discovers that she has a new relationship with time.

    Why watch Undone?:

    If you enjoyed cartoon comedy/existential drama Bojack Horseman, then you’ll love this trippy animation from the same creators. Starring Rosa Salazar and Bob Odenkirk, the series is a psychological comedy-drama, which tells the story of Alma, a young woman who, after getting in a car accident, discovers she has a new relationship with time and uses this ability to find out the truth about her father’s death.

    Dealing with themes surrounding mental health, family and culture, with a (potential) sci-fi twist, it’s at once hilarious and also devastatingly sad. The show’s unique look is created using rotoscope animation, meaning the actors performed the scenes live and animators then drew on top of them. It makes for a gorgeous looking series, which helps to heighten the un-reality of it all.

    Why watch Ten Percent?:

    Hit French comedy Call My Agent! has created a big buzz worldwide since it started airing in 2015, so it’s no surprise that this British version has now landed on Prime Video. The series explores the world of talents agents and their celebrity clientele, and features some seriously starry guest appearances (hello, Helena Bonham Carter!). However, the real highlight is the delightfully crafted and perfectly cast characters and their relationships – from Jack Davenport’s smarmy son of the agency’s founder to Lydia Leonard’s often fearsome agent character Rebecca, they all get their own arcs and are properly fleshed out as individuals beyond their work lives. With a biting humour but a warm heart, it’s one not to miss.

Isabel Conklin (Lola Tung), known affectionately as Belly to family and friends, spends the summer with her mother Laurel (Jackie Chung) and older brother Steven (Sean Kaufman). They are close to Laurel's best friend Susannah Fisher (Rachel Blanchard) and her two boys, emotionally distant eldest son Conrad (Christopher Briney) and golden boy younger brother Jeremiah (Gavin Casalegno).

    Summary:

    One obsessive fan of a global popstar, whose followers are lovingly known as The Swarm, resorts to extreme measures to get up close and personal with her idol

    Why watch Swarm?:

    Swarm is the kind of series that’s rather difficult to put into words – you just have to watch it. Created by Donald Glover and Janine Nabers, who both worked together on Atlanta, the series shares the same slightly comedic tone and is unexpectedly thought-provoking throughout.

    We follow Dre, brilliantly played by Dominique Fishback (Judas and the Black Messiah), a devoted fan of fictional R&B icon Ni’Jah. But Dre takes things all too far in her quest to get closer to her icon, resulting in her taking a dark cross-country journey, leaving devastation in her wake.

    The series has glaring (intentional) similarities to the real-life Beyhive, but also shines an important light on fandoms, parasocial relationships and the pile-on culture that dominates the internet.

    Set thousands of years before the devastating events chronicled in The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings, this epic fantasy series chronicles events from the Second Age of Middle-earth's history including some characters that will already be familiar to fans of JRR Tolkien's work. Developed by JD Payne and Patrick McKay, The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power begins in a time of relative peace and harmony as characters from across the realm confront the re-emergence of evil. News of this insidious threat spreads quickly from the island kingdom of Numeno to the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains and the elf-capital of Lindon, home to High King Gil-galad (Benjamin Walker), Galadriel (Morfydd Clark) and Elrond (Robert Aramayo). New heroes rise and others fall as armies of arcs rampage across the kingdom and humans must stand side by side with elves, hobbits and other magical creatures to prevent a shroud of darkness from extinguishing all hope from the world.

    Why watch The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power?:

    It’s the big one – the one we’ve all been waiting for. Amazon purchased the rights to The Lord of the Rings back in 2017, and have been steadily putting together this series, based largely on appendixes from those books, ever since. The result is The Rings of Power, a visually dazzling series which is reportedly the most expensive show ever made.

    It takes us back to Middle Earth but not as we know it, with the series set thousands of years before The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and features, elves, dwarves and the Hobbit-like Harfoots. If you’re looking for sweeping fantasy, epic vistas and a plot to intrigue as we delve in the world JRR Tolkien first created like never before, then this one’s for you.
