who killed the liar?

NEW DRAMA Liar Monday, ITV HD, 9pm There’s a chill in the air at a windswept Essex boatyard – and it’s not just the bracing weather. TV&Satellite Week is on set for the much-anticipated second series of ITV thriller Liar, watching a tense scene being filmed between two potential suspects for the murder of serial rapist Andrew Earlham. The powerful drama gripped the nation in 2017 when viewers debated whether teacher Laura Nielson (Joanne Froggatt) or surgeon Andrew (Ioan Gruffudd) was lying about a rape accusation. But as the first series ended, Laura finally exposed evil Andrew, who went on the run from the police and was last seen with his throat slit on the marshes. In the new run, by brothers Jack and Harry Williams, who created the original and whose other credits include…

NEW SCI-FI War of the Worlds Thursday, FOX HD, 9pm & 10pm The dust has barely settled on BBC1’s period version of The War of the Worlds, yet this week, another adaptation of HG Wells’ 1898 novel invades our screens. Although this is something entirely different… Ambitious, big-scale and brought bang up-to-date, FOX’s eight-part adventure is set in modern-day Europe and features a large ensemble cast, including Gabriel Byrne and Elizabeth McGovern. Beginning with a double bill – followed by one episode a week – the drama introduces French scientist Catherine Durand (Léa Drucker), who detects a transmission from a distant star and believes it to be intelligent extra-terrestrial life. Soon after, a group of meteor-like objects hurtle towards Earth and emit powerful electromagnetic pulses that kill anyone who hasn’t been able to find shelter. Most of…

NEW COMEDY The Trip to Greece Tue, Sky One HD, 10pm & 10.30pm It’s 10 years since Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon took to the Lake District’s winding roads to film their first-ever series of The Trip. ‘Back then we didn’t know what to expect,’ says Brydon. ‘We were shooting scenes where we’d be thinking, “Is this actually funny?”’ They needn’t have worried. Playing fictionalised versions of themselves visiting restaurants and trying to outdo each other with their celebrity impressions proved to be a winning formula. After follow-up series in Italy and Spain, the pair, both 54, travel to Greece for a final helping. Here, they reveal what’s in store… What’s your itinerary this time? Coogan We’re mimicking Homer’s Odyssey. So we begin in Troy in Turkey and end up in Ithaca, visiting places like Athens and Hydra…

good cop, bad cop?

NEW DRAMA McDonald & Dodds Sunday, ITV HD, 8pm Starsky and Hutch, Cagney and Lacey, Dempsey and Makepeace… detective duos have been a mainstay of the TV schedules for decades, and this week we welcome a new partnership in ITV’s new crime drama McDonald & Dodds. Set in the picturesque city of Bath, the series pairs ambitious DCI McDonald, played by Tala Gouveia in her first lead role, with unassuming DS Dodds, played by the BAFTA-winning Jason Watkins. Their characters couldn’t be more different. While McDonald has transferred from the mean streets of south London, Dodds has been plodding along in a desk job for most of his working life. ‘They are polar opposites,’ says Gouveia, who’s also appeared in ITV’s Cold Feet. ‘From the outset, McDonald finds Dodds quite frustrating. She’s impatient, very fast-paced, always…

NEW DRAMA Noughts + Crosses Thursday, BBC1 HD, 9pm What would life be like in today’s Britain if, rather than European powers colonising Africa, history had happened the other way around? That’s the premise of new six-part BBC1 drama Noughts + Crosses, adapted from Malorie Blackman’s young adult novel series. The story is set in an alternative London where the culture of black colonists in‘Albion’ has been dominant for hundreds of years, since the African Empire’s invasion of Europe. The indigenous white population – or ‘blanks’, as they are termed – are the underclass, restricted to the worst jobs and housing and battling an authoritarian regime. Against this backdrop, an unlikely love story develops across the racial divide between Callum, played by Peaky Blinders actor Jack Rowan, and wealthy, idealistic Sephy, played by South African newcomer…

CORONATION STREET Daniel proposes to Bethany – but calls her Sinead… Sarah and Adam tie the knot this week, but as Daniel delivers his best man’s speech, the smitten newly-weds are left somewhat anxious.

A worried Sarah urges Bethany to accept that Daniel hasn’t moved on from his spouse, while Adam tries to talk some sense into Daniel when he later finds him knocking back pints in the Rovers. But Daniel insists he’s serious about Bethany, and is going to prove it by proposing. Before Adam can stop him, the tipsy dad is shouting up to…
