TV tonight: time’s up for Jodie Whittaker in her final turn as the Doctor

Doctor Who: Flux

6.25pm, BBC One

Despite a mixed reception for Chris Chibnall’s reign as showrunner, casting Jodie Whittaker as the first female Doctor was a largely successful move. But time’s up for both of them now, as they begin their long goodbye with this six-parter (plus three specials in 2022). Mandeep Gill’s Yaz survived the companion cull at the end of the last series, and is joined by John Bishop as Dan. Familiar enemies pop up across a single-story season, with some surprise faces promised. Simon Wardell


9pm, BBC One

Made in Chelsea-meets-primetime legal drama for the next five weekends. Despicable, uber-privileged brat Talitha Campbell (Céline Buckens) is arrested over the disappearance of a fellow student. And yet she still feels untouchable. With ambitious defence lawyer Cleo Roberts (Tracy Ifeachor) on her side, maybe she is? Cue a high-profile court case that unpicks how wealth, politics and prejudice can distort the quest for justice. HR

Angela Black

9pm, ITV

Joanne Froggatt continues to lead this bleak but pressing drama. Episode four sees Angela trying to adjust to her new life, but therapy sessions trigger memories, and it’s revealed how long her husband Oliver has been abusing her. HR

The Disappearance of William Tyrrell

Film choice

Widows, 9pm, Channel 4

Steve McQueen relocates Lynda La Plante’s 80s ITV series about criminals’ wives to Chicago for this 2018 thriller, giving it a socio-political dimension reminiscent of John Sayles’s great City of Hope. Viola Davis is the drama’s steely centre as Veronica, widow of Liam Neeson’s Harry, who inherits a debt to Brian Tyree Henry’s would-be alderman after Harry’s gang die. So she asks the other bereft spouses, Alice (Elizabeth Debicki) and Linda (Michelle Rodriguez), to join her in a heist. The generic side is handled expertly, but the moral complexity gives the film its weight. SW

Let the Right One In, 12.05am, BBC Two

When a bullied boy meets a vampire girl they find common cause in their loneliness, and ultimately some kind of love, in Tomas Alfredson’s masterful 2008 Swedish horror film. Kåre Hedebrant plays Oskar, who befriends new neighbour Eli (Lina Leandersson), a pale, watchful, slightly chilly 12-year-old who is secretly a blood-sucker preying on the residents of their depressing suburban estate. The wintry setting creates an atmosphere of clammy stillness and dread, punctuated by brief moments of grisly violence. SW
