What's on TV tonight
Our expert TV journalists have picked the best things on TV tonight...
Best TV shows on TV tonight
Hospital, 9pm, BBC2
This has been a remarkable series, highlighting life on the frontline of the NHS at an unprecedented time. The final episode joins plastic surgeon David Wallace as he operates on Anna, who suffered a horrific injury at work. Her road to recovery was paused due to COVID-19, but she’s finally getting the crucial facial surgery she needs. Elsewhere, Colin is coming to terms with the devastating effect COVID has had on his body. Like the NHS itself, his recovery process will be slow and require support and determination.
Holby City, 8.20pm, BBC1
We can’t believe we’re actually writing this: as TV Times went to press, the BBC announced that Holby City is being axed after 23 years. The medical drama, due to end next spring, has given us great storylines and fantastic characters – Ric Griffin, Jac Naylor, Elliot Hope and, of course, Henrik Hanssen. It will certainly be missed. This week, another of our favourites, Kian Madani, is stunned when two stab victims are brought to the hospital, causing him to spiral out of control. Gripping from start to finish, this is Holby at its best.
Bake Off: The Professionals, 8pm, C4
Get ready for more desserts that look too good to eat as six new teams try to impress judges Benoit and Cherish. In the first challenge, the teams have to produce two miniature classics: the lemon meringue pie and tiramisu. Then, for their Showpiece, they must transform the humble fruit crumble into a towering edible sculpture. It’s a tense watch when the bakers take their creations to the judging table…
Best box set to watch on TV tonight
StartUp, seasons one to three, Amazon Prime Video
Breeders star Martin Freeman shows, as he did in 2014's Fargo, that as well as comedy he can do edgy US drama complete with an authentic American accent. He plays an FBI agent with a dark side in this gritty tale of digital money laundering, first released in 2016.
Best film to watch on TV tonight
Let Me In, 10.45pm, Horror Channel
Hollywood remakes of successful foreign films don’t always work, but this version of the Swedish movie Let the Right One In is excellent. Kodi Smit-McPhee is a lonely, bullied 12-year-old boy who develops a relationship with his new neighbour, Chloë Grace Moretz. She looks about his age and equally alone, appearing only at night and seemingly impervious to the cold. As Kodi quickly learns, though, Chloë’s not like him at all… A beautiful horror tale that’s ultimately a tragic love story.
