Tip of the day: Ghosts
8.50pm, BBC One
The paranormal comedy returns with Mike and Alison (Kiell Smith-Bynoe and Charlotte Ritchie) welcoming the first guests to their B&B in Button House’s gatehouse. “What’s the matter or are they just coming one way or another,” asks Lady Button (Martha Howe-Douglas), while Conservative MP Julian (Simon Farnaby) characteristically wonders if the guests have come for a “dirty weekend”. Elsewhere, Tom (Mathew Baynton) finally has some admirers – the ghosts of the plague victims mistake the failed romantic poet for a superstar – while medieval ‘witch’ Mary (Katy Wix) learns the meaning of the word ‘holiday’. Enjoy.

Paul also casts his rod in Loch Ness while Bob goes to meet Steve,
a monster hunter who for the last 30 years has devoted himself to catching a
Look at Nessie.
Agatha Christie’s Hjerson

Even if it’s easy, this weird Swedish import has its charms, especially the interplay between the main actors Johan Rheborg and Hanna Alström. This week the body of a chef is found frozen in a restaurant’s refrigerator in a crime identical to a murder in an unpublished manuscript. The author asks Hjerson and Klara to solve the case while Klara may have found a way to get Hjerson on her reality TV show. Co-stars are Maria Lundqvist.

9.50pm, BBC One
It’s the morning after the night before in the second part of Daisy May Cooper and Selin Hizli’s riveting comedy thriller – and a paranoid Nic (Cooper) drunkly regrets telling her new best friend Jen (Hizli) about her affair.
