Currently sitting in second spot in the UK Netflix charts, Beckham has received rave reviews. It's even achieved a 97% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, proving that it's a big hit with subscribers, whether they like sports or not.

However, what do you do once you've finished the mini-series? What should you watch next on the best streaming services?

Here are a trio of recommendations from the T3 team of similar series and feature length documentaries to put on your watchlist. And, like Beckham, we feel they offer something for non-footy fans too.

That Peter Crouch Film

  • Where? Amazon Prime Video
  • Stars: Peter Crouch, Abbey Clancy

Former England striker Peter Crouch has always been an enigma to many fans of rival teams, but much-loved by each of his previous clubs. He was a sensation at Liverpool and Spurs, and transformed both Portsmouth and, in his latter years, Stoke City.

This is a one-and-a-half hour documentary on how the unlikely 6-foot 7-inch hero conquered the football world, defying expectations along the way. And, considering how funny and likeable the man is, the time just races by.

Welcome to Wrexham

  • Where? Disney+ (FX in the US)
  • Stars: Ryan Reynolds, Rob McElhenney, Paul Mullin

Welcome to Wrexham is hardly a secret, but if you haven't watched it yet you really need to start as soon as you finish reading this. It is, quite simply, the best put-together show about football ever made.

The first season was a major hit around the globe, but the second is even better. Among the tales of the celebrity owners and their strive to get Wrexham promoted to the Football League are some extraordinary episodes, including the second of season two, which illustrates the struggles and part football has to play in the life of two children with autism. Award winning, surely.

Class of '92: Full Time

  • Where? Now, Sky Q, Sky Glass
  • Stars: Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, Phil Neville, David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs

Long before Wrexham was bought by a couple of Hollywood stars, several Manchester United legends purchased Salford City – another team languishing in the lower divisions of English football's non-league competitions.

This docu-series takes you through the former players' journey to turn fortunes around, with plenty of highs and lows along the way. And there are several treats for David Beckham fans, new and old.
