TV picks, Tuesday 14 January
The Great Sport Relief Bake Off
Kirsty Young, Jane Horrocks, the Olympic long-jump champion Greg Rutherford and the Dancing on Ice judge Jason Gardiner make gingerbread biscuits, banoffee pies and representations of their jobs in cake. That, we must see.
Stephen Mangan gets to voicespeak the clichés (“beating heart of South America”... “irresistible forces of nature”) and, as so often with these non-Attenborough wildlife series, it’s best to let the pictures speak for themselves, as a tufted capuchin hunts for an aggrieved-looking lizard and a giant otter of the Pantanal wetlands illustrates the value of a big family.
Death In Paradise
The returning Caribbean detective drama sees a group of old friends arriving on the island for a reunion, only for one of the party to be murdered with an ice-pick. Someone obviously packed for the wrong holiday.
Richard Poole (Ben Miller) is out of action, so another British inspector is quickly drafted in to help – which is the writers’ way of beginning to replace the departing Miller with Kris Marshall.
House Of Fools
Set in Bob Mortimer’s home, this is Mortimer and Vic Reeves’ stab at a studio sitcom, and good fun it is, too – with no little thanks to co-stars Matt Berry and Morgana Robinson.
