The Goes Wrong Show, 8.30pm, BBC1

TV tonight Robert (HENRY LEWIS).

Never let it be said that Cornley Dramatic Society members don’t learn from their mistakes: after an unbroken run of disastrous productions, director Chris Bean has been ousted and power-hungry Robert Grove has taken the reins. Of course, he’s cast himself as the hero in their latest show. Half the fun lies in anticipating the mistakes, but the talented, fearless cast always find a way to make the slip-ups surprising and hilarious.

Silent Witness, 9pm, BBC1

TV tonight Jack and Nikki investigate the death of a boxer

Meanwhile, at the gym where the victim trained, another pair of siblings are involved in betting on underground fights. And as Jack’s brother Ryan moves in after leaving jail, he soon starts breaking his parole conditions. Former The Bill star Lorraine Ashbourne guest stars as a boxing gym owner.

Adapted from the novels by Isaac Asimov, this big-budget series stars The Crown actor Jared Harris. Set in a galactic empire ruled by clones, the 10-part series features Harris as scientific guru Hari Seldon, who has used his new predictive science of ‘psychohistory’ to foresee the fall of the empire in 500 years time. The empire’s rulers are understandably furious and he’s banished into exile. In order to preserve civilisation, Hari and his followers venture to a far-off region of the galaxy to establish a new society – The Foundation – on the planet Terminus. It’s a place where they hope to preserve mankind’s science and knowledge, but there are enemies on other planets who they must also outwit…

Best film to watch on TV tonight

The Green Knight, Amazon Prime Video

Dev Patel stars in this Arthurian epic as the king's nephew Gawain. After beheading the creature of the title and cursing himself to the same fate, Gawain undertakes a journey of self discovery. On a quest to find his own version of honour, he encounters thieves, giants and a talking fox. Directed by David Lowery, this is a film that evades easy interpretation, but stick with it for striking visuals and Patel's best performance yet. Streaming from Friday 24 September.
