What to watch this week.
Monday-Tuesday, BBC One
Elliot and Helen travel to Ireland to find answers about Elliot’s past. However, after Elliot is violently kidnapped, they must each continue their dangerous search alone.
Mr Bates Vs The Post Office
The drama tells the story of one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in British legal history. Hundreds of innocent sub-postmasters and postmistresses were wrongly accused of theft, fraud, and false accounting due to a defective IT system. Many of the wronged workers were prosecuted, some were imprisoned for crimes they never committed, and their lives were irreparably damaged by the scandal.
Based on the hit US show, Stephen Fry hosts the quiz in which players are presented with clues in the form of answers and must phrase their responses in the form of a question.
Tuesday, BBC One
Kim rolls out a fresh initiative that causes fireworks for staff and pupils alike, and two worlds collide when Tonya forms an unlikely bond with new boy Schuey.
Wednesday-Friday, BBC One
Claudia Winkleman greets 22 strangers as they arrive at a beautiful castle in the Scottish Highlands to play the ultimate reality game of detection, backstabbing and trust, all with the hope of winning up to £120,000.
Wheel Of Fortune
In this thrilling game of skill and luck, the turn of the wheel secures a cash value before they pick a letter to help them solve the puzzle. For every correct letter they reveal in the puzzle they win multiples of that amount. The pressure is on as they could lose everything at a spin of a wheel which contains ‘bankrupts’ and ‘lose a turn’ and the contestants' entire winnings could be wiped out.
