There's another stonking week of telly ahead, taking viewers on a magical mystery tour to settings as diverse as a 15th-century English battlefield and a sun-soaked beach in modern day California.

As ever, Tube Talk are here to hold your hand and guide you through the schedules with our Must-See TV rundown. Read on to discover which shows we'll be flicking on in the next seven days...

90210: Monday (June 10) at 9pm on E4
Reminding us that even the buff and beautiful don't have it easy, 90210 arrives back on our shores this week for its fifth and final season. Picking up immediately where the last run left off, Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) and Max (Josh Zuckerman) see their plan to elope hit a snag thanks to a car emergency, an armed robber and a policeman.

Meanwhile, Liam (Matt Lanter) is forced to sell his bar to pay off the scheming Vanessa (Arielle Kebbel); Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) meets a handsome stranger on her country tour; Teddy (Trevor Donovan) contemplates fathering Silver's (Jessica Stroup) baby; and Dixon's (Tristan Wilds) loved ones react to his accident. Plus there's a cameo from Carly Rae Jepsen, which would be really exciting if this was last summer.

Game of Thrones: Monday (June 10) at 9pm on Sky Atlantic
We almost don't want to tune in to Game of Thrones this week after that tragic, earth-shattering twist in the last episode. I mean if they can callously slaughter three major characters just because, goodness knows what they're planning to shock us with in season three's grand finale.

If you are able to face it, we've been told that the episode will see Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) stand up to his grandfather Tywin (Charles Dance), as mercy comes from a surprising source in Dragonstone. I suppose a shock twist in which the events of the 'Red Wedding' are revealed to be Jon Snow's dream is out of the question?

Dates: Monday (June 10) at 10pm on Channel 4
The terror, trauma and triumphs of the dating scene are recounted to us in distressing detail in Dates, a new nine-part series from Channel 4's 'Mating Season', a collection of dramas and documentaries about all kinds of love matters.

Fresh from being murdered in the aforementioned Game of Thrones, Oona Chaplin appears in the first of the dates as a woman named Mia, who's been set up with none other than Will Mellor and is contemplating doing a runner. Sheridan Smith and Ben Chaplin play other hopeless romantics looking for love in the two episodes later this week.

Big Brother: Thursday (June 13) at 9pm on Channel 5
It may be in its 14th year and attract a fraction of the viewers it had in its heyday, but Big Brother is coming back reinvigorated for 2013 with a new presenter and an intriguing 'Secrets and Lies' twist. Emma Willis, sporting a lovely Davina-esque harcuit, takes over the main show from Brian Dowling and is lumbered with the task of ferrying this year's housemates into the compound during its live double launch, continuing Friday.

The new lot of egotists and eccentrics are tipped to enter the show hiding massive secrets that we hope will lead to explosive showdowns, a load of betrayals and the biggest brother yet. Failing that, we should at least get some wannabe glamour models posing in their bikinis.

The White Queen: Sunday (June 16) at 9pm on BBC One
We at Tube Talk don't mind admitting that we're not exactly history buffs, but throw in a splash of sex and violence and suddenly shows like The White Queen are must-see TV.

Based on Philippa Gregory's best-selling novels, The White Queen is a glossy dramatisation of the 15th-century royal power struggle dubbed the War of the Roses. Swedish actress Rebecca Ferguson - or rather her character Elizabeth Woodville, the widowed consort to Edward IV (Max Irons) - is the woman referred to in the title, and in this opening episode her hold over the king threatens to unravel the scheming Earl of Warwick's (James Frain) plans for the throne.
