Best TV shows on TV tonight

The Crown, Netflix

TV tonight The Crown

Emma Corrin as Princess Diana

Writer Peter Morgan has walked a fine line between deference and controversy in this regal drama, but he’s pulling no punches in the fourth series. As we move into the 1980s, the relationship between Diana and Charles dominates and it’s hard not to feel for the young Princess as her spirit is crushed under the wheels of a remorseless royal machine. It’s an especially unflattering look at Charles, but Josh O’Connor is superb as a man dithering between love and duty, while Olivia Colman also excels in the Queen’s sparring sessions with PM Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson).

Ant and Dec are ready to meet this year’s celebs

It’s the show that lets us know Christmas is just around the corner. But with travel to the jungle in Oz impossible this year, at one point it looked like I’m A Celebrity… couldn’t go ahead. But, as they say, the show must go on, so Ant and Dec instead host the 20th series live each night from Gwrych Castle in North Wales. Rumoured celebs taking part include Coronation Street’s Beverley Callard, TV presenter Vernon Kay and ex-Strictly pro AJ Pritchard – all competing to be crowned King or Queen of the castle.

In the dock: The Mangrove Nine

Oscar-winning director Sir Steve McQueen’s anthology series about the struggles of London’s West Indian community starts with a bang. This beautifully crafted feature tells the story of the ‘Mangrove Nine’, who faced trumped-up charges after a protest in 1970. Cinematic tricks combined with a joyous soundtrack take us on a moving journey.

Sorry to Bother You, Netflix

A young black man begins his ascent up the corporate ladder at a telemarketing firm after he discovers his ability to adopt a ‘white’ voice. From then on things get ever more surreal in this scaldingly funny satire. LaKeith Stanfield makes an engaging hero, while Armie Hammer is hilarious as his scheming boss.
