Our Girl, 9.00pm, BBC1

Michelle Keegan Our Girl Series 3

Michelle Keegan’s back in camouflage gear for a brand new series, as 2-Section fly out to Nepal on a humanitarian mission. Medic Georgie Lane is trying to put her second failed engagement behind her, but with old flame Elvis (Luke Pasqualino) still very much on the scene, it looks like singledom won’t be straightforward – especially with a handsome local engineer catching her eye, too. Romance aside, Georgie must also mentor new recruit Maisie, whose reckless approach to war and poor decision-making are a time bomb for the rest of the section. Action-packed and gripping, it’s a welcome return for this great series. Rating: ****

Anneka Rice, once famed for travelling around the country looking for hidden clues in Treasure Hunt, calls on friends in high places and charms the general public to help her stay undiscovered, while former Goggleboxers Steph and Dom Parker are nearly busted because they are having too much of a good time. Obviously, old habits are hard to break… Rating: ***

Countdown to Revolution

In just six months, they had turned the largest country on Earth into the first Communist state. Historians and writers still debate to this day whether it was a triumph of people power, or a violent coup d’etat. Juliet Stevenson narrates. Rating: ****
