Star Trek: Picard (Amazon Prime Video) Sir Patrick Stewart reprises his role as fan favourite Jean-Luc Picard, the legendary former captain of the USS Enterprise, in this ambitious 10-part series. The drama is set to examine how Picard’s life has altered since leaving Starfleet. ‘He may be a different individual who has been changed by his experiences,’ says Stewart, who will play Picard for the first time since 2003’s Star Trek: Nemesis. Little is known about the plot, though a cataclysmic event depicted in JJ Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek movie has affected Picard in a big way. Santiago Cabrera will play a thief and Michelle Hurd is an ex-intelligence officer.

DRAMA Catch-22 Thursday, C4 HD, 9pm Catch-22 may be a quintessentially American tale, yet when George Clooney was casting the six-part series, there was only one man he wanted to play US Major de Coverley, and he was British. Like most people, Clooney had admired Hugh Laurie’s performance as the curmudgeonly Dr Gregory House in hit drama House, and he knew Laurie would be perfect as Catch-22’s eccentric major with a taste for fine food. When Clooney contacted Laurie to offer him the role, the 60-year-old actor leapt at the chance to appear in the World War Two drama about the efforts of young pilot John Yossarian (Christopher Abbott) to get a discharge home. ‘When the emperor sends a signal across the water, you drop whatever you’re doing and answer the call,’ smiles Laurie. ‘Of course,…
