Best TV shows on TV tonight

Strictly Come Dancing 2021, 7pm, BBC1

The silver-screen glamour of Movie Week is behind us, but hopefully, the Strictly stars will still continue to produce gold-standard dances. Now we’re a few weeks into the series, we have some questions: will early frontrunners AJ Odudu and John Whaite still be near the top of the leaderboard? When will the curse of the samba claim its next victim? And will Shirley spot the ‘fundamentals’ she’s always looking out for? At least one of those questions will be answered tonight…

The Madame Blanc Mysteries, 9pm, Channel 5

Antiques Roadshow meets Midsomer Murders in this new drama created by Sally Lindsay. After her husband dies unexpectedly on his way home from the south of France, leaving her nearly penniless, antiques dealer Jean White (Sally) realises the expensive ring he’d bought moments before has vanished from his personal effects, so she flies out to the sleepy town of Sainte Victoire to track it down. Jean may not speak much French, but she’s got the makings of a cracking amateur detective – and this sun-soaked series full of lovably eccentric characters looks set to be the perfect antidote to dark autumn nights. 

★★★★ SP

Robson Green: Coastal Fishing, 7.05pm, Channel 5

Robson Green travels Britain’s coastline in search of some of the biggest and most unusual fish. That means he has to get to grips with 7ft conger eels off the coast of Weymouth, learns to fillet plaice and makes skipper rolls, a Devonshire signature dish. He also tries fishing from a pedal kayak, which is trickier than it sounds. This series certainly gives a new insight into what’s lurking in our oceans and when you see Robson tucking into freshly cooked seafood, it will send you running to your nearest chippy.

Best box set to watch on TV tonight

I Know What You Did Last Summer, season 1, Amazon Prime Video

The end of high school turns deadly for six teenagers in a new adaptation of the 1973 novel by Lois Duncan and the 1997 movie starring Jennifer Love Hewitt and Ryan Phillippe. Friends Allison, Lennon, Dylan, Johnny, Margot and Riley are leaving their graduation party in Hawaii when they’re involved in a devastating accident. The series’ opening episode gradually reveals what happened on that fateful night, and charts Lennon’s return to her home town the following summer, where there’s a gruesome surprise waiting inside her closet alongside the scrawled message, ‘I know what you did last summer.’ Realising that someone knows their secret, the group face an uneasy reunion as they try to identify their mystery blackmailer. An atmospheric, twist-laden remake. 

Best film to watch on TV tonight

Venom, 9pm, C4

As shabby investigative journalist Eddie Brock, Tom Hardy accidentally bonds with an alien life form at bad guy Riz Ahmed’s dodgy biotech lab, which gives him superpowers and turns him into Venom, an antihero with big teeth and a taste for human brains. The film looks murky and is muddled, but there are lots of darkly funny laughs and exciting action – and Tom is great fun in his dual role as Eddie and Venom. Michelle Williams also stars as Eddie’s lawyer girlfriend Anne Weying. The delayed sequel Venom: Let There Be Carnage is out in cinemas now.
