A Hitchcockian thriller, a paranormal nail-biter, a historical epic, and a topical legal drama are leaving SBS On Demand this week and you're well-advised to start binge watching now!

Every month there are great shows being added to the SBS On Demand library, but as they say: what goes up must also come down. There are four genuinely wonderful series leaving the popular streaming service by the end of the month. 

The Hugh Laurie thriller Chance has been building up a very loyal and passionate fan-base over the last few months. It's time to find out what they've all been talking about (don't worry, season 2 will still be streaming for a while yet). Also, there's just a week left to watch the first season of The Good Fight - it's a show we are loving here at SBS and are thrilled when more people discover how great it is. We're such fans of the show that we even have a podcast dedicated to it now. 

What are you waiting for? Now is the time to press play.

Chance - Season 1

Expires: 26 March

Hugh Laurie stars as Eldon Chance, a San Francisco-based forensic neuropsychiatrist in this provocative psychological thriller based on the novel by Kem Nunn. Eldon reluctantly gets sucked into a violent and dangerous world of mistaken identity, police corruption and mental illness. After an ill-advised decision regarding an alluring patient who may or may not be struggling with multiple personality disorder, he finds himself in the crosshairs of her abusive spouse, who also happens to be a ruthless police detective. In over his head, Chance's descent into the city's shadowy underbelly, all the while navigating the waters of a contentious divorce and the tribulations of his teenage daughter, soon spirals into an ever-deepening exploration of one of mankind's final frontiers - the shadowy, undiscovered country of the human mind.

Beyond The Walls - Season 1

Expires: 30 March

Lisa's fate takes a dramatic turn the day she settles down across the street from a mysterious uninhabited old house. She soon discovers that the police had found the body of a man in the house, who'd been lying there dead for more than 30 years. Lisa doesn't know the man at all, and yet he put her in his will, leaving his strange house to her. In this first episode, Lisa's awakened by anguished cries from the walls. She discovers another set of hallways and rooms behind the walls, along with a parallel world completely free of space and time continuums. Lisa meets Julien, a soldier from a different era. They join forces to try and find their way back to the real world.

Madiba: The Nelson Mandela Story

Expires: 31 March

Laurence Fishburne stars in this epic tale of Nelson Mandela, the globally beloved iconic figure, as well as the many other leaders of the African National Congress who fought alongside him in the multi-racial, multi-national movement that led to the end of South African apartheid.

The Good Fight - Season 1

Expires: 31 March

The Good Fight delivers stories inspired by real events, covering terrorism, cyber-bullying, censorship, hate speech and fake news. From the creators of the multi award-winning ‘The Good Wife’, Robert and Michelle King, comes this new legal drama series.

Picking up one year after the events of the final episode of ‘The Good Wife’, an enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of young lawyer, Maia Rindell (Rose Leslie), while simultaneously wiping out her godmother Diane Lockhart’s (Christine Baranski) savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) at one of Chicago’s preeminent law firms.
