The Hour: Tuesday at 9pm on BBC Two
In the third instalment of the BBC's new period drama, Bel (Romola Garai) and Freddie (Ben Whishaw) are invited to a getaway at a posh country house by the suave Hector (the fantastic Dominic West). But still reeling from his latest discoveries, Freddie begins to clash with shifty government advisor Angus (Julian Rhind-Tutt), while Hector struggles to hide his feelings for Bel from his wife Marine (Oona Chaplin). The Hour may be a slow-burner, but the final few minutes of each episode always have you tuning in for the following week - it's a frustrating but rewarding watch, and worth sticking with.

Trollied: Thursday at 9pm on Sky1
Sky1's really started amping up its original content recently and the latest result is brand new comedy Trollied. Is this going to be the supermarkets' answer to The Office? It's hard to tell straight away, but the cast is certainly strong - the fabulously expressive Jane Horrocks takes her place alongside Mark Addy who, fresh from being a king on Game of Thrones, becomes a butcher who really knows his bacon. Jason Watkins, Chanel Cresswell and Nick Blood are among the other stars joining the lineup at budget store Valco, so settle in for a double bill (or, um, buy one, get one free) and we'll see if it gets us rolling in the aisles (it's got to do better than that pun, for sure).

Superheroes of Suburbia: Friday at 7.35pm on Channel 4
Every young comic-book reader or superhero fan has surely dreamt of growing up to be a masked adventurer, but surely no-one has really lived out their childhood fantasy? This First Cut documentary follows the Dark Spartan (aka 27-year-old Torbay resident Will), Noir (comics fan Kieran) and The Shadow (army-trained 33-year-old Ken) as they patrol the streets in hope of helping those in need. It makes for slightly surreal viewing, but provides an insight into the minds of these lycra-clad do-gooders. Of course, the main problem is their careless lack of a secret identity...
Big Love: Friday at 9pm on Sky Atlantic
If you've been enjoying watching Big Love on Sky Atlantic, you'll be pleased to hear that you don't have to wait too long for season three - in fact, it's starting this week! In this premiere, Nicki gets a job at the DA's office (er, yeah, that'll end up well), Barb's worried that her cancer might have returned, and the Henricksons are invited to a block party (what a recipe for disaster!)

Law & Order: UK: Sunday at 9pm on ITV1
In the penultimate instalment of this underrated crime drama's fifth run, honest cops Brooks (Bradley Walsh) and Devlin (Jamie Bamber) investigate the murder of a couple who were stabbed to death as they slept. But with a lack of motive or suspects for the killing, the crime-fighting pair begin to suspect that someone may have made a rather large mistake. The latest run of Law & Order: UK has been missing something - namely the fantastic James Steel (Ben Daniels) - but it's still solid, well-made fare.
