Staying in tonight? Here's what to watch on the box

Close

No point in even pretending that you're going out tonight. Here's what to watch on the telly - when you get back from that 10km run, of course

Broadchurch

TV3, 10pm, UTV/ITV, 9pm

One of those shows that inspires absolute devotion from its fans, Broadchurch makes a very welcome return this evening. The second series of the murder mystery runs for eight weeks and if it’s anything like the first, it’ll quietly amass a whole following.

In terms of plot, things are very sketchy as the writer Chris Chibnall isn’t giving anything away. The stars have had to sign confidentiality agreements and the script was only released to the stars in snippets.

What we do know is that many of the key players of series one will return. David Tennant and Olivia Colman reprise their roles as police officers Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller, while Jodie Whittaker and Andrew Buchan are back as the parents of the dead boy, Danny Latimer.

And that’s about it.

Tune in and prepare to be transfixed.

 

MOTD Live AFC Wimbledon v Liverpool

BBC1, 7.30pm (KO 7.55pm)

Liverpool travel to London to take on AFC Wimbledon in tonight's third round encounter at the Cherry Red Records Stadium.

Of course, long time Reds fans will remember - through gritted teeth - the 1988 FA Cup final when hot favourites Liverpool were beaten 1-0 by Wimbledon FC.

Although tonight's opponents are not the same club, they'll no doubt take their inspiration from the Crazy Gang as they seek one of the greatest Cup shocks in history. Expect Steven Gerrard to be particularly fired up as the domestic cup competitions offer him his only chance at silverware in his final season as a Liverpool player.
