Prepare for trouble on eight legs, as adorable little hound Buddy has found himself a ridiculously cute friend – another stray dog called Bob. You’ll recognise him as Paddy, from Midsomer Murders, and between them the two cheeky terriers make the Doc’s life a misery. It’s hilarious! While Martin tries to shake off his doggy friends, Morwenna is in for a shock when her parents Jack and Tara turn up on her doorstep unexpectedly (Jack is played by none other than Downton Abbey’s Molesley, Kevin Doyle). Meanwhile, Ruth comes to the rescue for a struggling patient and Louisa is frustrated when Martin interferes with her studies. Rating: *****

The Apprentice, 9.00pm, BBC1

The candidates embrace the luxury hotel market this week, when each team is charged with designing, decorating and furnishing a premium bedroom in a top establishment before pitching their designs to the hotel manager and a design specialist. However, after some seriously odd concepts are discussed and rejected – a celebrity-themed room based around Tim Henman is our favourite idea ever! – "luxury" seems a distant goal as the teams blunder through budget issues, wall-measurement problems, dodgy furniture and a creation that one rookie designer describes as looking like someone has "puked a rainbow". But as they face the wrath of Lord Sugar, who’ll get a five-star rating and who’ll be checking out? Rating: ****

Bad Move, 8.00pm, ITV

Steve and Nicky moved to the countryside for some peace and quiet, so they are none too pleased this week to find a bunch of ramblers bounding across their garden – apparently, their land is part of an ancient public right of way! To add to the couple’s annoyance, neighbours Matt and Meena invite them to attend their children’s fundraising event in aid of the local hospital – it’s a recorderthon! Elsewhere, Grizzo is into a new craze – tapping therapy. Will it catch on? Rating: ***
