Succession

9 p.m., Sky Atlantic

“The shit is about to explode…” It’s Kendall Roy’s (Jeremy Strong) 40th birthday and, boy, has he stepped out to celebrate, throwing a party where hundreds of guests will ‘he does not know are invited to “born” into his world for the evening – * pause to shiver *. Shiv (Sarah Snook) and Roman (Kieran Culkin) arrive to try and do business with tech mogul Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgård) – but all he wants for the night is “intimacy, pussy, pasta “. Meanwhile, Greg (Nicholas Braun) tries to muster the courage to ask for a longtime crush with the help – or hindrance – of Tom (Matthew Macfadyen). Perhaps this is the standout episode that patient fans have been waiting for this season. Hollie richardson

The outlaws

9 p.m., BBC One

What started out as a deceptively low-stakes comedy now ends with a dramatic finale – and a number of emotionally complex accomplishments. As we learn more about Christian’s story, the gang comes together to try to save him. Will the future policewoman Diane help them? And look for the Banksy cameo that made the headlines. TIME

Royal Bastards: Rise of the Tudors

9 p.m., History of the sky

The innovation of this documentary series – instead of a voiceover, actors of the caliber of Sophie Rundle, Sheila Atim and Philip Glenister deliver the narration to the camera – succeeds in bringing the dramatic re-enactments to life. This week, as the Earl of Warwick plots on behalf of Henry VI, Margaret Beaufort plots to get her son back. Jack Seale

Frankie Boyle’s New World Order

10 p.m., BBC Two

With its mix of baffling monologues, hot topic debates, and cutting-edge media analysis, New World Order has become perhaps the perfect vehicle for Boyle’s scorched earth vision. The penultimate episode of this race sees the anger and brimstone Scotsman welcoming more guests to his Govan Batcave. Graeme Vertu

On the road with David O’Doherty

10 p.m., Canal 4

As comedian David O’Doherty continues to cycle around the UK with celebrities, this episode is for anyone who’s ever tried to get rid of a rampant hangover (respect to you). Tonight mountain biker Grayson Perry climbs into the saddle and embarks on a two-day trip with a night of booze. TIME

Dexter: new blood

10:05 p.m. Sky Atlantic

Dexter’s return seemed more justified than most TV reboots, if only because the original farewell was so unsatisfying. Dexter now looks slightly more fallible, which might lead to a more satisfying conclusion. Tonight, the father of his latest victim makes a shocking announcement and Angela moves forward in the missing persons case. Phil harrison

14 Peaks: Nothing is Impossible (Torquil Jones, 2021) Netflix
The attempt of former commando Gurkha and SBS Nimsdai Purja to climb every mountain in the world above 8000m in just seven months is the inspiring subject of this documentary. The challenge (which he nicknamed “Project Possible”) is also driven by a desire to place Nepalese climbers in their rightful place in the firmament of sport. Purja leads his all-Nepalese team with a smile to the high-altitude ‘death zone’, where the most extreme physical and mental challenges await.. Simon wardell
