The complete list of Paramount+ additions for April 2023 is as massive as ever, so here we’ve selected the best titles for fans of historical dramas, British TV, and classic movies to add to their watch list.

Loosely based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s iconic characters, 1985’s forgotten Young Sherlock Holmes movie is actually a lot of fun. The film is written by Chris Columbus, who went on to adapt the first two Harry Potter movies, and you can definitely see some shared DNA on screen in this story of a young Sherlock Holmes and John Watson solving a mystery together at a boarding school.

A number of American movies land on Paramount+ this month, including Leonardo di Caprio’s spooky thriller Shutter Island, Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln biopic, and 2011’s Oscar-nominated comedy-drama The Help.

Lennie James’s 2018-2020 British series Save Me also arrives, from the makers of Line of Duty, along with the second season of The Adventures of Paddington for younger Anglophiles.
