Matt Berry’s grotesque thespian is back – and he’s angrier than ever. Plus: Alice Roberts digs for knowledge. Here’s what to watch this evening

Toast of Tinseltown

10pm, BBC Two

Steven Toast is back – and he is angrier than ever. In fact, he has reached peak anger: cue a trip to the retreat of Des Wigwam (Kayvan Novak) for some kill-or-cure therapy. But the anger-management programme has unexpected side-effects – one of which eventually explains this show’s new title. With Ray Purchase, Jane Plough and Clem Fandango still in tow, it is wonderful to have Matt Berry’s grotesque thespian back. Phil Harrison

The Language of Love

10pm, Channel 4
