TV tonight: Nicola Coughlan and the gang say goodbye to Derry Girls

Derry Girls
Tuesday, 9.15pm, Channel 4

Lisa McGee’s joyous coming-of-age comedy returns for its third and final season, with the “wee lesbian” (Nicola Coughlan), the “wee English fella” (Dylan Llewellyn) and the rest of the gang of teenage misfits navigating the Troubles in 90s Derry. The summer holidays are coming to a close and hope is in the air that the conflict may finally be over. Meanwhile, the girls of Our Lady Immaculate College experience a dark night of the soul as they fret about their impending GCSE results the following morning. They try to get an early glimpse of their grades but things soon spiral out of control, and the police arrive to investigate their activities. Luckily, boring Uncle Colm (Kevin McAleer) is on hand to help. Ammar Kalia

9pm, Sky Atlantic

Sarah Lancashire and David Hyde Pierce do their best to rival Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci’s 2009 depiction of TV chef Julia Child and her husband, Paul, in this retelling of Child’s life and stardom. Lancashire anchors her performance in the anxieties of upper-middle-class Americans, depicting Child’s deflation after the crowds depart as much as her happiness when they are there. We open as Child’s first cookbook is about to be published in 1961, turning her into a local celebrity in Cambridge, Massachusetts. AK

Freeze the Fear With Wim Hof
9pm, BBC One

This new celebrity reality show opens with sub-zero Gandalf Wim Hof gruffly declaiming that “the magic happens” if you get very cold. Hence the likes of Tamzin Outhwaite and Professor Green spending half an episode jumping, underwhelmingly, into icy water. It’s less clear why they go on to scramble down a cliff face. Alexi Duggins
