The TV Times top picks for tonight

What’s on telly tonight? Here the TV Times team of expert reviewers highlight three of the best shows on telly tonight for Wednesday 25th October

Doc Martin, 9.00pm, ITV

It’s a nightmare day in the Ellingham household: little James has started biting people, Louisa is struggling to squeeze in her studies and Martin sustains an injury of his own, after another run-in with his nemesis, Buddy the dog. To make matters worse, Morwenna has gone glamping with Al, leaving Mrs Tishell to run the surgery… Meanwhile, Penhale is disappointed by the lack of interest in his police open day and finds himself under pressure to solve a local alpaca mystery, and Louisa is put out when study buddy Tina (played by guest star Samantha Spiro) starts criticising Martin. Plus, brace yourselves for one of the bloodiest scenes in Doc Martin history! Rating: ****

Marvel’s Inhumans, 9.00pm, Sky One

It’s fair to say that this addition to the Marvel universe didn’t get the best reviews when its first two episodes debuted in Imax cinemas screens across the world, but TV viewers now get the chance to make up their own minds. The eight-part drama stars Iwan Rheon (best known as evil Ramsay Bolton in Game of Thrones) as Maximus, a member of a royal family of superhumans who live secretly on the moon. But, unlike the rest of his kin, the supervillain has no powers, leading him to plot a rebellion to support the poorest in their society. It might not be Thrones, but there’s plenty of scheming and skulduggery to enjoy. Rating: ***

The Apprentice, 9.00pm, BBC1

This week’s task is close to Lord Sugar’s heart. He tasks the candidates with running VIP hospitality at the Women’s FA Cup Final at Wembley and a stall outside the ground. Each team has to provide top-notch food, drinks and entertainment in their box, but there’s confusion over pricing (when will they learn?!). When one team takes cost-cutting to the extreme, a contestant is forced to sing for the clients! Rating: ****

Return tomorrow for more previews!
