TV Tonight: Derry Girls star Jamie-Lee O’Donnell returns in prison drama | Television



9 p.m., Channel 4

This weirdly underwhelming prison drama returns for a second series, still delivering decent performances from Nina Sosanya and Jamie-Lee O’Donnell, but somehow totaling less than the sum of its parts. O’Donnell’s Rose is back on the wing, still traumatized after the events of season one but trying to hold on. Meanwhile, a rumor is circulating about the presence of an undercover agent among the new class of prisoners, which could prove dangerous for both inmates and staff. Phil Harrison

DIY SOS Strictly Special

9 p.m., BBC One

The TV crossover you didn’t know you needed: This unique special is inevitably classic but often delightful as Nick Knowles teams up with Anton Du Beke and friends to transform the True Colors performing arts school in Newcastle upon Tyne. This is clearly an incredibly commendable operation, one that exists on a shoestring budget and deserves all the help it receives. pH

The supermarket of the 1970s

9 p.m., Channel 5

The scorching heat of 1976 wasn’t the only thing that angered buyers. Due to a faltering economy and the worst drought in two centuries, fresh vegetables were in short supply…until a band of friendly Martians came to the rescue with their magical potato powder. Elsewhere: Meet the Honey Monster. Ali Catterall

The friendly Strictly couple who fell in love in front of the nation get their own mind-blowing documentary series. This evening, they discuss the first names of their second child while preparing the departure on tour of the dancer Gorka. They seem nice enough, but you never quite know why they have their own show. pH


9 p.m., BBC Four

This pleasantly over-the-top docudrama about Rome’s greatest asset continues and is now titled AD107. A radical religion called Christianity is on the rise and threatens the hierarchy of the empire. An obvious solution would be to give the lions the high priest Ignatius, but Emperor Trajan underestimated the power of martyrdom. Hollie Richardson


9 p.m., alibi

A real cold affair for the pleasantly eccentric brass of Nicola Walker as she travels to the Jura to investigate a body found in a block of ice. Soon, Annika is drowning in gossip when all she really wants is to think about Orwell, who wrote the brutal Nineteen Eighty-Four while living on the bucolic island. Graeme Virtue
