It's Sunday again, which of course means another week of television goodness lies ahead! Some shows are coming to a close, while others are just beginning. How tantalising! But what do you fancy? An episode-a-night crime thriller? A subversive Aussie comedy? Or how about a trip back in time to Camelot, where things are a bit raunchier than you might expect? There's all sorts going on in the next seven days, so read on to find out what we've picked out...

Injustice: Monday at 9pm on ITV1
As telly-lovers, there's something a bit exciting about a series being stripped across one week. Proper event television is always good fun, so if you fancy sinking your teeth into a new drama, why not check out Injustice? The series has been written by Anthony Horowitz, the children's author who's also penned classic shows like Foyle's War, Poirot and Collision. But what's it about? Well, Will Travers is a barrister recovering from a mental breakdown. He's been refusing murder cases, but when his old university friend calls up in a bit of a pickle, will he agree to help? Meanwhile, a creepy cop - played fabulously by Charlie Creed Miles - is investigating a rather nasty killing. Expect twists and turns, and a great cast - James Purefoy, Dervla Kirwan, Nathaniel Parker and more!

Angry Boys: Tuesday at 10.40pm on BBC Three
Stop everything - Chris Lilley is back. Yes, the amazing creator of Summer Heights High has returned with a brand new mockumentary. Obviously this is not one for the easily offended - it's already caused a little bit of controversy Down Under - but no doubt some people will soon be quoting rapper S Mouse or young offenders guard Gran (we're a little scared already). Can Angry Boys reach the dizzy heights of Summer Heights High, though? That remains to be seen.

The Good Wife: Thursday at 9pm on More4
This season of The Good Wife has been excellent, especially in the last few episodes. Of course, it's all building up to this - the season finale. As always, we've got a case for Lockhart Gardner to deal with, which features a guest appearance from The Wire's Seth Gilliam! But naturally, there's also a lot more than that going on. Will Kalinda and Alicia make up? What's going on with Kalinda, anyway? What's Peter going to do next? And now that Alicia has finally kicked out Peter, will she do something about those longing glances she's been exchanging with Will for, like, forever, or will she remain single? The Good Wife is quality TV and the finale promises an excellent hour of entertainment. The only downside is that we'll have to wait a while for season three!

The Mentalist: Friday at 9pm on Channel 5
The three-year quest of Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) comes to an end this Friday night, as the crime-solver finally confronts Red John, the mysterious serial killer who slaughtered his family! There's revelations aplenty in this thrilling season finale, as Red John's mole in the CBI is also exposed. The Mentalist has already been renewed for a fourth season over in the US, and after the shocking events of this episode, we're sure you'll join us in asking, 'What the heck is going to happen next?'.

Camelot: Saturday at 9pm on Channel 4
As one top US drama (temporarily) concludes, another kicks off this week - fantasy drama Camelot is coming to Channel 4! This series is a more gritty and adult retelling of the Arthurian legends than you might be used to, with Joseph Fiennes leading the cast as a shaven-headed Merlin. Former Bond girl Eva Green is also on board as the sultry Morgan, while Twilight's Jamie Campbell-Bower is the young Prince Arthur. In this double-bill premiere, King Uther (Sebastian Koch) dies and Merlin must find the rightful heir to the throne, before Morgan can seize power!
