This intriguing new time loop thriller presses rewind on end-of-the-world scenarios
If you had the power to rewrite your past, what would you sacrifice to do it? From Groundhog Day to The Butterfly Effect, tackling the concept of time travel isn’t original, but Sky’s new thriller The Lazarus Project sets itself apart by dealing with issues of both mortality and morality. The eight-part series begins with George (I May Destroy You’s Paapa Essiedu) living a blissful six months – he gets married, his wife falls pregnant and he succeeds professionally – before waking up to find that none of it has happened. Enter Archie (Vigil’s Anjli Mohindra), who explains it’s the work of a secret organisation that’s able to reset time in order to avert apocalyptic ruin – something that’s occurred multiple times before. After being recruited to the organisation, a freak accident affects his own life and George is caught between saving those he loves and saving the planet.
“Considering series’ development began six years ago, the world-ending events covered in the first episode alone ring eerily true, from a deadly virus to nuclear conflicts,” says Stylist Loves deputy editor Annie Simpson. “This prescient feeling continues throughout – not only for George but for the viewers too, with casual references to historic events along with the more recent Covid-19 pandemic. While the series successfully merges edge-of-your-seat moments with light-hearted humour – including a montage set to R.E.M.’s It’s The End Of The World As We Know It – what really sticks is the concept of what would you change if you could go back in time?” Starts 9pm tonight; Sky Max and NOW

Get involved in the repair revolution at Somerset House’s new exhibition
If you’ve ever sat and sobbed at an episode of BBC One’s The Repair Shop (no judgement here), it’s likely that Somerset House’s newest exhibition is right up your restoration-loving street. We can all be guilty of being swept up in what’s new and next, but surfing the recent vibe shift towards upcycling and treasuring what we have is Eternally Yours, which aims to help you see the beauty in what you already own, flaws and all. With a focus on repair, care and breathing new life into old objects, the exhibition showcases diverse examples of creative reuse – from the historical Japanese arts of kintsugi and boro to contemporary pieces, including the intricate stitchwork of Celia Pym and Zimbabwean-German artist Georgina Maxim’s large-scale mixed media textile stories.
With an estimated 92 million tonnes of textile waste created each year – not to mention the cost of living crisis hiking up prices of new items – leading to a soaring ‘make-do-and-mend’ movement, fashion and lifestyle brand Toast will also be on hand to further help you to reconsider your relationship with clothing and the planet. Through a series of workshops, artists such as Molly Martin (also the author of The Art Of Repair), Celia Pym and Ekta Kaul will encourage you to see the value of pre-loved items and offer advice on repair and repurposing techniques. Better for your purse and the planet? That’s something we can all get behind. Until 25 September; free; Strand, London WC2R
