TV Times top picks for today
What’s on telly tonight? Here the TV Times team of expert reviewers highlight the best shows on Easter Sunday
Ordeal by Innocence, 9pm, BBC1
If you’ve over- indulged on sweet treats from the Easter Bunny, this Agatha Christie adaptation will add a welcome dose of sharpness to the festivities. The three-parter sees Anna Chancellor as uncompromising heiress Rachel Argyll who is beaten to death in the opening moments. But life at her family’s country pile, ironically named Sunny Point, is further shattered when a stranger rocks up with an alibi proving that Rachel’s disturbed adopted son, who was charged with her murder, wasn’t guilty. The news goes down like a lead balloon with the secretive Argylls and their true colours start to shine… Bill Nighy and Poldark’s Eleanor Tomlinson also star. Rating: ****
Good Karma Hospital, 9pm, ITV
Dr Ruby finds herself on a journey into her family history during a powerful and engaging episode this week. After spotting her in the paper, Ruby’s uncle asks her to his remote tea plantation to tackle a virus outbreak. Dr Lydia also sends Dr Gabriel, and his support proves vital as Ruby faces her past. Will this set the ball rolling for them being more than colleagues? In Barco, Lydia deals with a domestic abuse case in a moving story. Rating: ****
The Durrells, 8pm, ITV
Louisa’s a great mum, but we’re not sure it is the best parenting choice to leave Leslie, Margo and Gerry to look after themselves while she and Larry go back to England! Spiro’s keeping an eye on them, but with Leslie feeling trigger-happy anything could happen… In Blighty, Louisa is stuck with her fusty relatives, planning Aunt Hermione’s funeral, while Larry is in the big smoke living the artist’s life with Henry Miller and the Bloomsbury Set. Never one to miss an adventure, Louisa soon turns up on the doorstep, leaving Larry mortified, and providing much hilarity as she befriends his Bohemian housemates. But with Larry wanting to stay, will she return to Corfu alone? Rating: ****
The Generation Game, 8pm, BBC1
After much hoo-ha Mel and Sue’s “Gen Game” is finally here, and it’s just as we remember it. Identical games (we’d have put money on sausage-making and pottery turning up, and they’re both in episode one!) and a similar level of silliness. These days no show can exist without judges, so this week, it’s Richard Osman and Lorraine Kelly making token comments between games, and there are a couple of celeb cameos, too. Rating: ****
