TV picks: Rev Returns to BBC2 with Olivia Colman and Tom Hollander
What to watch on TV tonight, Monday 24 March
Back (at last) for a third series, Tom Hollander’s beleaguered cleric Adam Smallbone and wife Alex (Olivia Colman) are now the parents of a baby daughter, but the finances of St Saviour’s are still threadbare.
Enter two welcome additions – played by Getting On’s Joanna Scanlan and Vicki Pepperdine – an area dean and diocesan secretary intent on shutting down Adam’s church. Can an ecumenical church fête, shared by the go-ahead imam of a nearby mosque (and played by Kayvan Novak) save the day?
The Great NHS Robbery - Panorama
A shocking report if proved true. Fiona Walker investigates allegations that the NHS is losing billions every year to fraudsters – enough to employ 330,000 new nurses.
Martha (Maxine Peake) is asked to defend an ex-boyfriend who's on trial for a gangland killing.
The Michael McIntyre Chat Show
So now we know – Graham Norton needn’t be fearing for his job. The bouncy Michael McIntyre doesn’t cut the chat-show mustard in my book as he shoots the breeze with Joanna Lumley and Tinie Tempah.
Robert Bartlett (left) continues his clear and engaging account of England’s longest-reigning dynasty with the pious, baron-bullied Henry II and the Welsh and Scottish-bashing Edward I.
