TV tonight: gruesome tales of the Australian outback

Mystery Road

9pm, BBC Four

Aaron Pedersen returns as Indigenous Australian detective Jay Swan in this second series TV spin-off of Ivan Sen’s feature films Mystery Road and Goldstone. Where Sen’s films traded in a gritty, brutal vision of the Australian outback, the TV series takes a more procedural tone, laced with Pedersen’s noir-referencing performance. In tonight’s double bill, Swan is sent to the quiet coastal town of Gideon, where a decapitated body is found in the mangroves, leading him to suspect the presence of drug traffickers. Ammar Kalia

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman, home videos and a whole load of face paint: this is the taste of Strictly the world needs. Movie Week always provides the strangest moments of the competition, so it’s good to see Stacey Dooley jiving while painted yellow and dressed as a Minion. Hannah Verdier

One Man’s Madness

10.30pm, Sky Arts

The Beach: Isolation in Paradise

10.55pm, BBC Four
