Still Open All Hours
8pm, BBC One

David Jason is back as smart-talking grocer Granville in the sixth series of this nostalgic reboot. The family cornershop might be a rarity now – especially with the looming logistics chaos of Brexit – so the warm sepia tint of Still Open All Hours feels all the more necessary; a soothing balm of fictionally better times. There is the continuing slapstick of Gastric’s relationship with Madge and shop assistant Leroy’s romantic woes with Beth, but it’s Jason’s comic timing that steals the show. Ammar Kalia

Have I Got News for You
9pm, BBC One

Being a Have I Got News for You guest host is now a staging post to becoming prime minister so hopefully Victoria Coren Mitchell will one day end up in No 10. Only Connect’s high priestess of arcana is in the big chair tonight, helping Paul Merton and Ian Hislop brand some zingers on the bucking bronco of current affairs. Graeme Virtue

The Name of the Rose
9pm, BBC Two

The gritty adaptation of Umberto Eco’s thriller continues with the aftermath of monk Venanzio’s murder prompting an investigation from John Turturro’s morally upright William of Baskerville and his young protege Adso. Giacomo Battiato’s lingering direction makes this a slow-burning saga. AK

9pm, Sky One

After last week’s thwarted dealings with black-market organ trading, Mark Strong’s steely underground surgeon faces increasingly compromising decisions as his wife’s health deteriorates. With only three more episodes to go, the pace is finally building to what will surely be a heart-pounding conclusion. AK

Live: The Circle Final
10pm, Channel 4

It has been a vintage season for the fake influencer reality show. Watching a scantily clad Richard Madeley call himself Judy while flirting with the son of Zoe Ball and Fatboy Slim has been a TV joy. He is out of the running now but here comes the final where Emma Willis reveals the winner of the £100,000 prize. Hannah Verdier

The Graham Norton Show
10.35pm, BBC One

Mr Norton recently told Radio Times that he doesn’t deserve his £610,000 salary, but you’ll be the judge of that as he gathers Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton for a Terminator reunion. Also on this week are Blondie’s Debbie Harry and TV chef Nadiya Hussain. Ellen E Jones

The Last Days on Mars (Ruairi Robinson, 2013) 1.20am, Channel 4
There are space movies and there are zombie movies, so how could we not expect a zombies-in-space movie? Robinson’s well-crafted sci-fi adventure has an intriguingly international crew on the last day of a six-month mission to the red planet, when things start to go horribly wrong. Paul Howlett
