Strictly Come Dancing

Angela Rippon’s pasodoble to Madonna’s Hung Up? Annabel Croft’s samba to Whenever, Wherever by Shakira? Layton Williams’s Argentine tango to Loreen’s Tattoo? Yes, yes and yes! The remaining couples will not want to get the boot ahead of Blackpool week. Hollie Richardson


7.25pm, BBC One

As this daft but watchable tropical elimination contest goes deeper, the tactical intrigue increases. We’re leaving the phase of weak candidates being giving their marching orders; now, contestants must oust competitors. This week, they duel with what appear to be pugil sticks from Gladiators. It gets messy. Phil Harrison

The live music bonanza celebrates 75 years since the arrival of the Windrush generation this weekend, with a film about Michael “Bammi” Rose – a Jamaican who came to the UK in 1962, went on to play in Cymande and Aswad, and is now in Jools’s Rhythm & Blues Orchestra. Performances come from Róisín Murphy, Nitin Sawhney, Tom Walker and Yussef Dayes, and Suggs chats about Madness’s first new album in seven years. HR

Film choice

The Killer, Netflix

David Fincher’s new film, a cool hitman procedural, basks in the clinical pleasures of its genre. From the paraphernalia of the job – sniper rifles, fake passports, lock-ups in every city – and voiceover by Michael Fassbender’s (otherwise monosyllabic) protagonist to the skills that come in handy when his latest hit goes wrong, it’s a thriller where the messy stuff of life is always threatening to break through his strict routine. Stabs of emotion appear when the killer’s Dominican housekeeper is attacked, while his work soundtrack of Smiths songs (This Charming Man, I Know It’s Over) adds an amusing, ironic edge to proceedings. A gripping tale well done. Simon Wardell

Planet of the Apes, 2.50pm, BBC Two

Featuring one of the greatest endings in all sci-fi cinema, Franklin J Schaffner’s 1968 film works both as a parable of human (and animal) rights and a rollicking, kid-friendly action adventure. Charlton Heston is astronaut Taylor, who crash-lands on a world where our simian cousins have evolved beyond humans and now rule, brutally. He quickly becomes the focus of the resistance, aided by chimps Zira (Kim Hunter) and Cornelius (Roddy McDowall). The excellent makeup quickly makes us forget the oddity of talking apes, while Heston is a bullish lead. SW
