Set in a fictional Scottish suburban street, comedy series Two Doors Down – now on its fifth series – follows the lives of the residents of Latimer Crescent. 

Poking fun at what suburban life looks like, at the centre are married couple Eric (Alex Norton) and Beth (Arabella Weir), who just want a quiet life but are often interrupted by their boisterous neighbours. 

Series five opens with Beth whipping up a vegetarian curry for son Ian (Jamie Quinn) and his boyfriend Gordon (Kieran Hodgson).

However, it is set to be anything but a quiet family meal, when the boys arrive, Ian is sporting a concerning black eye and nosey neighbours Cathy (Doon Mackichan) and Colin (Jonathan Watson) have invited themselves over.



Sky Atlantic, 9pm 

Starring Olivia Colman and David Thewlis, the dark drama is inspired by the real-life events of the 1998 murders of Nottingham residents William and Patricia Wycherley. 

Extensive research, interviewing those close to the case and direct access to the accused allowed for a detailed retelling of a unique murder case. 

The series tells the story of the mild-mannered Susan (Olivia Colman) and her husband Christopher (David Thewlis), who end up killing Susan’s parents and burying them in their back garden. 

Their bodies remained undiscovered for over a decade and the couple made continuous withdrawals from their bank account over the years. 

The series explores the corrupting power of love and fantasy, which pushes an ordinary couple to do unspeakable things. 

The Cult of Conspiracy: QAnon 


Channel 4, 9pm

Once a fringe phenomenon, QAnon has entered the mainstream and in 2020 its insidious nature infested social media with false information about Covid19, Black Lives Matter protests and the presidential election. 

A wave of new believers joined their cause, with a founding belief that Donald Trump was fighting a secret war against elite Satan worshipping paedophiles in government, business and media. 

The documentary examines their wild conspiracy claims and looks at the biggest names in QAnon and the front-line digital soldiers.

The one off film asks the question, what would lead someone down such a different path? 

And Just Like That 


Sky Comedy, 9pm 

Set 17 years after the original series ended, the revival welcomes back Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), with Samantha (Kim Cattrall) notably missing.

Now in their 50s, the series follows the trio as they navigate love, life and friendship in New York City.

The revival will address the coronavirus pandemic and more accurately reflect the New York of today, with greater diversity in the cast, including the addition of Karen Pittman as Dr. Nya Wallace and Sara Ramìrez as Che Diaz, a non-binary, queer stand-up comedian.

The acts include soloists, duos and bands and each episode will see the musicians perform to the nation.

Not only is talent needed but nerves of steel too, as the contestants must decide if they would like to cash out of the game or physically walk the line to risk it all and stay in the competition.
