MONDAY

Undeniable (STV, 9pm)

MONDAY night, 9pm, STV - which means it’s time for another one of their WIPFPBD sagas (Woman in peril from psycho bloke dramas).

Okay, that acronym will never catch on, but ITV bosses love turning out these formulaic strands regardless, and the latest one is a cracker.

Claire Goose plays Jane Phillips, a woman who recognises Andrew, the consultant oncologist who killed her mother 23 years ago... now all she has to do is prove it.

TUESDAY

Later Live - With Jools Holland (BBC Two, 10pm)

NENEH Cherry, the Stockholm-born vocalist, was THE face and voice of 1988. She last had a chart hit in 1999, so there’s a chance her new solo album Blank Project could put her back in the public eye.

As Later Live - With Jools Holland returns for its 44th run, Ms Cherry plays breakout hit, Buffalo Stance, while Elbow return to the studio.

Plus, there are turns from Engelbert Humperdinck; Cambridge electronic outfit Clean Bandit and vocalist Jess Glynne.

WEDNESDAY

Law & Order UK (STV, 9pm)

THE episode begins with the discovery of a blood-spattered hotel room and a stolen credit card that belongs to the wealthy, upper-class Charles Hutton. No corpse is found, which begs the question: where did the blood come from? Further investigation suggests that Charles’ beloved daughter Georgia, the apple of his eye, gave birth in the room. The baby can’t be found, but charges are brought against Georgia and her boyfriend Rufus anyway - which brings Jake face-to-face with an old enemy.

THURSDAY

The Walton Sextuplets at 30 (STV, 9pm)

SPARE a thought for Graham Walton. This is a man who’s had to put up with being the last in the queue for the bathroom for most of his life and he won’t have won an argument for the last 30 years, but he wouldn’t swap his six daughters for anything. He and Janet are parents to the world’s only surviving all-female sextuplets - and the family are celebrating the girls’ 30th birthday with a family trip to New York, their first holiday together in nearly 10 years.

FRIDAY

Have I Got News For You (BBC ONE, 9pm)

AS ever, team captains Ian Hislop and Paul Merton will be offering their unique take on the week’s silliest news stories, while comedian Henning Wehn (one of this week’s special guests) will hopefully be a Teutonic tonic for those in need of a laugh.

SATURDAY

The Guess List (BBC One, 9.30pm)

ROB Brydon takes centre stage as the host of The Guess List, a brand-new entertainment series crammed with big laughs and famous faces.

Each show pits two members of the public against one another as they compete for an exclusive tailor-made prize. With questions based on modern life and relationships, they’ll need some expert advice.

Thankfully, five celebrity guests are on hand to lend their support as Rob draws up a Guess List of answers.

SUNDAY

The Crimson Field (BBC One, 9pm)

WHILE Thomas may not be making much headway with Kitty, he is having more success on the wards with a pioneering wound-irrigation system.

Thomas’s test subject is doing well but a fellow surgeon of the old-school, Major Yelland, is dismissive of his techniques and seems determined to bully him. Will Miles be able to placate his increasingly riled friend?
