The Tunnel



This British/French remake of Danish drama The Bridge had a strong debut last week. Episode two sees TV's newest crime-solving duo Elise (Clémence Poésy) and Karl (Stephen Dillane) begin to realise that they are perhaps dealing with a criminal mastermind.

The investigation into the murder of Welsh prostitute Gemma Kirwan and French politician Marie Villeneuve sees Karl find himself in the grubbiest parts of Folkestone.

Meanwhile, as Elise heads across the channel to Boulogne, her shrewd investigative skills lead her to a grisly discovery in an abandoned slaughterhouse. The Tunnel is definitely not for the faint-hearted but it does make for some intense viewing.

Poirot: The Big Four: 8pm, ITV

Poirot



Everyone's favourite detective returns to our screens in The Big Four. We join David Suchet's Poirot in his last quartet of mysteries.

The episode, adapted from Agatha Christie's novel by Mark Gatiss of Sherlock fame and Ian Hallard, follows Poirot and his investigation into the mysterious and sinister organisation 'The Big Four', who are responsible for a series of murders and brutalities.

As World War II looms, will Poirot crack yet another case or will 'The Big Four' really be the Frenchman's last outing? It seems likely as The Big Four marks Suchet completing the entire Poirot back catalogue, with the exception of one short story.

Misfits: 9pm, E4

Misfits



The nation's finest delinquent superheroes return for their fifth and final series.

Tonight, we see barman Alex (Matt Stokoe) recovering from his recent lung transplant and struggling to deal with his... rather unique superpower, which we won't go into detail about! Meanwhile, Finn (Nathan McMullen) succumbs to a seductive scout. However, we soon learn that her troop may not be as wholesome as they seem.

Of course, fan favourite Rudy (Joseph Gilgun) sticks to what he knows, being as rude and lewd as ever!

After a rocky fourth series, which creator Howard Overman described as 'not our finest hour', series five looks set to burst back onto our screens in the brilliant and bizarre way Misfits fans know and love.
