Best TV shows on TV tonight

Strictly Come Dancing 2022, 7.15 pm, BBC One

What a series this has been so far! It’s really tough to guess who will make it to the final at this stage as, rather than one or two couples being consistently brilliant, just about all the dancers have produced a ‘wow’ routine so far, with standouts including Kym’s Argentine tango, Fleur’s couple's choice and Molly’s rumba. But who is going to score the highest marks this weekend and who will be in the dance-off? That glitterball trophy is anyones at this point in the competition.

Pointless Celebrities, 5.30 pm, BBC One

He may have departed the weekday show, but co-host Richard Osman is still very much part of the celeb version as it returns with an edition marking 100 years of the BBC. The ‘Auntie’ legends guessing the most obscure answers include DJ Tony Blackburn, Blue Peter alumnus Peter Purves and the trailblazing Dame Floella Benjamin.

Jimi Hendrix Experience: Music, Money, Madness in Maui, 9 pm, BBC Two

Had he lived, Jimi Hendrix would have turned 80 tomorrow, November 27. Perhaps he would have still been playing festivals, like fellow octogenarian Paul McCartney. As it was, he didn’t even make it to 30. BBC Two devotes part of its schedule to the legendary guitarist, beginning with this documentary.

It follows the making of ill-advised counter-culture film Rainbow Bridge, which was filmed on Maui and featured a free concert by Hendrix in which (it was 1970, after all) the audience was arranged according to their astrological sign. It’s followed at 10.30pm by documentary Voodoo Child, following Hendrix’s career from early days until his death just weeks after the Maui concert.

Casualty  9.25 pm, BBC One

It’s judgement day for Stevie (Elinor Lawless) as she prepares for her Jac Naylor Award interview and learns she’ll be up against ED rival Ethan. The medic’s big day goes from bad to worse as she treats Flo, a patient with an abusive boyfriend, Jordan. Stevie gets the measure of Jordan pretty quickly but refuses to let him intimidate her. However, it’s not long before Stevie witnesses Jordan’s dark side first-hand... Casualty has never been one to shy away from gritty realism and this episode is certainly no exception. Compelling stuff!

Best box set on TV tonight

1899, Netflix

1899 is the latest series by Dark creators Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese. Their newest offering is an enigmatic show that will have viewers question what is going on at every turn of its eight-episode first season, so it's perfect for those looking for a twisty new thriller to entertain them over the weekend.

All eight episodes are now available to stream on Netflix and feature a great cast including The Pursuit of Love's Emily Beecham and It’s for Your Own Good's Andreas Pietschmann.

Best film on TV tonight

The Outfit, 6.10 pm, Sky Cinema Premiere

A supremely elegant, enigmatic thriller set within the confines of a 1950s Chicago tailor’s store, this is rooted by Mark Rylance’s expert ex-Savile Row cutter (‘a tailor just sews on buttons and hems trousers,’ as he says), a man who insists on very particular standards. He has a paternal fondness for his young assistant, Zoey Deutch, and a wariness of the Mob, who use his shop as a money drop-off. When a snitch is suspected within the criminal fraternity, though, Rylance’s workplace becomes the centre of a twisty, wonderfully labyrinthine set of events. A classy, claustrophobic confection.
