Best TV shows on TV tonight

Strictly Come Dancing 2021, 7.05pm, BBC1

As the dance contest progresses, Strictly always surprises. But the standouts for us, at the time of writing, are presenter AJ Odudu and partner Kai Widdrington, with their spine-tingling American smooth; Bake Off star John Whaite and Johannes Radebe, with a powerful paso doble, and EastEnders’ Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice, who symbolise how dance is a universal language. This weekend, the remaining couples will be hoping to make it to Halloween Week. But who will fall at this crucial hurdle?

The 80s – Music’s Greatest Decade? With Dylan Jones, 8.55pm, BBC2

Eighties music is often dismissed as a bit of a joke, but in this series music journalist Dylan Jones celebrates the decade as the most experimental and influential in the history of pop. He begins with a look at the impact of MTV, politics, super producers and nightclubs. Includes clips from the hits with contributions from Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson, Gary Kemp, Bananarama’s Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward and more. 

★★★ HD

The Lancaster Bomber at 80 with David Jason, 7pm, C4

It’s been 80 years since the Lancaster Bomber first took to the skies and the iconic aircraft would go on to play a crucial role in turning the tide of the Second World War and defeating Hitler. In this special programme, narrator David Jason traces its origins and ponders the legacy of the aeroplane, before military historians and surviving crew members reveal a host of untold stories from all those years ago. Some of the best tales feature the legendary RAF commander Arthur ‘Bomber’ Harris, who will be forever synonymous with ‘The Lanc’. 

★★★★ SMA

Currently the most watched show on Netflix in the UK and US, this South Korean drama is causing quite a global storm. The nine-part series is based on a group of 456 people in dire need of money. They take part in a game show in a secret location and have to compete against each other playing traditional Korean children’s games to win a huge cash prize – 45.6 billion Korean Won or about £28 million in sterling. But the contest turns out to be a brutal and deadly game of survival in this gripping, addictive and very violent thriller.
