Daniel Lawrence Taylor discusses his new timetravelling sitcom Timewasters
Young Sheldon follows nine year old Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage - Big Little Lies) as he navigates his way through his school and home life in East Texas.
Although an adult Sheldon has found his feet as an exceptional physicist, his gifted younger self must cope with the struggle of living in a religious 'normal' family unit in a town where his peers are more focused on football than mathematics and science.
As a naive young Sheldon attempts to understand the world around him, his family must also find a way to deal with his own quirks and differences.
The sitcoms will been shown in a new 10pm slot that aims to be a platform for bolder comedy shows.
Karl Pilkington's first scripted comedy will see him take on the role of himself (and the voice inside his head) in the parallel mundane life he might have led if he hadn't met Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.
The ten part drama series is loosely based on the gritty 2000 film of the same name about a real life heist in London, which starred Brad Pitt and Vinnie Jones.
Luke Pasqualino stars as sharp cockney Albert Hill, who is finding his feet in his family of criminals. He and a group of young hustlers are thrown into the world of organised crime after stumbling upon a truck full of stolen gold bullion.
Rupert Grint plays Hill's partner-in-crime Charlie Cavendish, an intelligent and well-spoken gentleman who seems to bring chaos with him.
The Great British Bake Off
Tuesday: Channel 4, 8pm
The eighth series of Bake Off is finally here! Channel 4's GBBO welcomes 12 new amateur bakers to the show for a whole host of new challenges.
The news was announced at the Edinburgh TV Festival during a panel discussion with Phoebe Waller-Bridge and BBC Controller of Comedy, Shane Allen.
It was revealed that the second series will arrive on the online platform in 2019, following a hugely successful first series about a sharp and crude twenty-something woman living in London who is trying to come to terms with a personal tragedy.
The first series was adapted from Waller-Bridge's multi award-winning one-woman stage show of the same name, which was first shown at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013.
The duo star as Aziraphale (Sheen), a somewhat fussy angel, and Crowley (Tennant), described in the books as “An Angel who did not so much Fall as Saunter Vaguely Downwards,” and whose cosy lives on earth are due to be brought to an ungainly halt by the arrival of the apocalypse – due on Saturday, just before dinner.
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are ready to ride, Atlantis has risen, and the Forces of Good and Evil are amassed, however plans for the Armageddon have spun wildly out of control and someone has lost the Antichrist. His name is Adam.
Finneran plays Cheshire housewife Nikki Kirkbright, who develops a close bond with David Marsden (Robert Bathhurst) through his job in personal finance.
Despite her luxurious lifestyle, there is more than meets the eye as it becomes apparent that Nikki's husband George (Robert Glenister) is not the man he seems.
When secrets are revealed, will David be able to help Nikki escape, or will he get tangled up in the situation?
