There are few actors with a track record of success in television comparable to Hugh Laurie's, from early classics such as Blackadder and ‘A Bit of Fry and Laurie’ to later successes such as House, ‘The Night Manager’ and Avenue 5. His appearance alone in a series is enough to draw in an audience, which is why upcoming BBC original Roadkill, Laurie’s latest, is surely a must see.

In the second half of this article we’ll look at how to watch iPlayer, All Four and ITV Hub from outside the UK, and believe me it’s easy!

If you’re still reading past the mention of Hugh Laurie, and not already scrolling down to find out how to watch iPlayer, then you probably want me to give you some more reasons to care about Roadkill, luckily for me there are plenty of exciting tidbits about this upcoming series worth mentioning!

Deceit, Lies & Corruption

Roadkill sees Laurie play Peter Laurance, a ‘self-made’ Conservative politician, attempting to out-run his lurid past in what is set to be a gripping political thriller.

Laurie and more...

The series is written and directed by legendary writer and director David Hare (The Hours, The Reader), and is set to be released later this year, as a four part mini-series.

Real Life or Fiction?

The series follows Laurance, a charismatic and self-interested politician, as he attempts to rise through the ranks of the Conservative Party, in a bid for the top job. Yet Laurance has some ghosts in the closet, and isn’t all he makes himself out to be (sound familiar?). The show thus explores themes around the characteristics and moral compass (or lack of one) often exemplified by high-ranking politicians in the UK (and well, everywhere).

Use Beebs to watch iPlayer overseas

When it comes to watching iPlayer, All Four or ITV Hub from overseas, you’re ultimately facing two choices, a VPN or Beebs. The best VPNs are excellent in terms of offering heightened security and accessing websites out of bounds in countries like China, and can sometimes be used for accessing media platforms such as iPlayer from outside the UK. Nevertheless, not all VPNs are necessarily compatible with iPlayer; VPNs can be difficult to operate, and tend to slow down streaming speeds because they take up space on your hard drive.

Beebs on the other hand is specifically tailored to afford its users access to BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub and All Four. The Beebs team works around the clock to ensure its users can access the major British media platforms from any location around the world. As a Google Chrome add-on, Beebs takes up next to no space on your hard drive, allowing for fast streaming speeds. All you need to get started is a Google Chrome web browser and to follow the steps laid out below.
