Our expert TV journalists have picked the best things on TV tonight…
Best TV Shows On TV Tonight
Call the midwifeseason 11, 8 p.m., BBC1
The series finales of this period drama are always special, but this week’s conclusion to a consistently brilliant 11th inning takes things to another level. With scenes worthy of a disaster movie, emotions run high as we witness the fallout from last week’s terrifying train crash, which left the lives of Dr. Turner and Sister Julienne hanging in the balance… As the team of Nonnatus House does its best to help the injured, there are some deeply moving scenes as our favorite characters rise to the challenge.
Jane McDonald: My Yorkshire9 p.m., Channel 5
Singer and presenter Jane presents the delights of her beloved home county. From the rolling valleys of Yorkshire to the seaside resorts of Scarborough and Bridlington, Jane travels in a trusty Vauxhall Viva like the one she drove as a teenager. His first destination is the picturesque town of Holmfirth, filming location of the hit sitcom Last summer wine, where she peeks inside Nora Batty’s house. She also shows viewers places that hold special memories, including her hometown of Wakefield, aka “Wakey”, and the stunning beauty spot of Newmillerdam.
Chloe9 p.m., BBC1
We think Becky (Erin Doherty) deserves a medal for forcing her way into the lives of her former friend Chloe’s loved ones in her guise as “Sasha.” We’re not sure we can last more than five minutes with the gang of egomaniacs! As Chloe’s widower, Elliot, who “Sasha” is dating, becomes increasingly intense, Chloe’s cocky girlfriend, Liv, is now distinctly “off” with “Sasha” over said relationship. As Becky tries to put the final pieces of the puzzle together regarding Chloe’s death, storm clouds gather… Ends tomorrow.
Trigger point9 p.m., ITV
Vicky McClure’s Lana was already traumatized after the loss of her pal Nut, so seeing her brother die in a car bomb pushed her to the brink. As Lana struggles with her guilt after failing to save poor Billy, the suicide bomber continues his campaign of terror with a deadly gas bomb. It’s a fast-paced fifth episode, filled with frayed nerves, tense moments, and a big breakthrough.
Ice dancing 20226 p.m., ITV
Our remaining stars skate to the best of the West End and Broadway as DOI celebrates Musicals Week. They perform for an extra pair of expert eyes, with choreographer Arlene Phillips as guest judge. Everyone is hoping to deliver a crowd pleaser that will leave audiences clamoring for an encore, but prolong its run with box office success, and which pair will issue an early closure notice?
Best box set to watch on TV tonight
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, season 4, Prime Video
As the delightful period comedy-drama returns, housewife-turned-standup Miriam “Midge” Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) has just had her budding acting career dealt a blow after being rejected from an upcoming tour with singer Shy Baldwin. A complete meltdown ensues on the way back from the airport, with a Basil Fawlty-style assault on the cab, using a branch! However, the setback proves the impetus to rethink his act and his future. Meanwhile, there’s family chaos as his parents decide to change their grandson’s birthday, and ex-husband Joel faces setbacks at his new nightclub business. A welcome return for this multi-award winning series.
Best movie to watch on TV tonight
missing girl11:30 p.m., C4
The dark secrets of a married couple are revealed in this pleasantly slippery thriller based on
on Gillian Flynn’s bestseller. Rosamund Pike’s Oscar-nominated golden daughter Amy has gone missing and her husband Nick (Ben Affleck) is the prime suspect. As the cunning mystery unfolds amidst a media circus, director David Fincher draws our sympathies here and there while crafting twists and traps with stomach-pumping suddenness. Affleck is excellent, but Pike’s cold portrayal steals the movie.
