Married at First Sight UK

“This is my last time getting married. If it doesn’t work … we won’t be doing a third.” So says one of the 16 contestants ready to walk down the aisle with a total stranger. It’s the eighth season of the UK leg of the MAFS franchise and – with a concept that still doesn’t fail to blow the mind – it’s set to be as wild as ever. Refreshing to see a diverse cast, too.

Kind Hearts and Coronets (Robert Hamer, 1949), 3pm, Talking Pictures TV
In the middle of a seven-year run of classic comedies from 1948 to 1955, Ealing Studios produced arguably its finest work. Robert Hamer’s black comedy exploits the chameleon-like skills of Alec Guinness (playing eight members of the aristocratic D’Ascoyne family) in a tale of tradition, ambition and hubris. Dennis Price is Louis Mazzini, the impoverished, embittered black sheep of the clan who plots to kill all the relatives ahead of him in the line of succession to the dukedom. The inventive ways he murders them along with the twists in the tale make this a delight from start to finish. Simon Wardell

Cassandro (Roger Ross Williams, 2023), Prime Video
This fascinating wrestling biopic gets much of its oomph from the risk-taking of its lead, Gael García Bernal. He plays Saúl Armendáriz, a fighter in Mexico’s lucha libre world who decides to perform in the guise of Cassandro, an “exótico” – a type of male wrestler who dresses in drag but always loses. Saúl battles to be the first to win his fights, bumping up against homophobia and tradition in the process. Director Roger Ross Williams glories in the innate spectacle of the choreographed bouts, while Bernal brings out the tension between the freedom Saúl feels in the ring and the melancholy of his everyday life of secrecy and repression.
