MONDAY

New Tricks (BBC One, 9pm)

Ramsay is in Capbreton, a popular coastal town in south west France, where Tim and Debbie are at a loss as to how to save their struggling three-year-old restaurant, Le Deck. Ramsay pinpoints staff management issues, a bloated menu, huge overheads and disorganised leadership.

WEDNESDAY

Scott & Bailey (STV, 9pm)

A WOMAN’S body is discovered in a hotel room. The team don’t have a lot to go on until another woman comes forward to report a sexual encounter that took an uncomfortable turn, at which point it seems that a series of personal ads on a website might hold the key to the murder.

THURSDAY

Peaky Blinders (BBC Two, 9pm)

CILLIAN Murphy and Helen McCrory return as members of the criminal Shelby family for a new run of this period drama which is set in Birmingham. The action now takes place in the Roaring Twenties, with Thomas

But when we meet up with him again, a blast from the past is all set to put a spanner in the works of his well laid plans...

FRIDAY

Stars At Your Service (Channel 4, 8pm)

THE Stand Up to Cancer campaign has already given us one of the most memorable advertising campaigns of the year so far with its two-minute “It’s Payback Time” animation. Now it’s enlisted a host of famous faces to help out regular people in their day-to-day lives. So if you ever fancied getting a pop singer to clean your drains or a reality TV star to set you up on a blind date, here’s your chance.

SATURDAY

Doctor Who: Kill The Moon (BBC One, 8.30pm)

IN the near future, the Doctor and Clara find themselves on a space shuttle, making a suicide mission to the Moon.

Crash-landing on the lunar surface, they find a mining base full of corpses, vicious spider-like creatures poised to attack, and a terrible dilemma.

When Clara turns to the Doctor for help, she gets the shock of her life.

SUNDAY

Our Girl (BBC One, 9pm)

MOLLY and Smurf return to the UK for “rest and relaxation”, but both quickly find that they struggle enormously to fit into the normal world.

They both worry for their platoon, left behind in Afghanistan in a particularly threatening situation. Unable to fit back into family life, Molly finds Smurf is the only person who understands what’s going on in her head and their friendship deepens into something very close.
