Police Interceptors (S2)Tuesdays at 21:00
Police Interceptors follows a crack Essex Police unit dedicated to running dangerous criminals off of the road.
Using the most powerful rally cars in the world marked up in police colours, they present a truly formidable opponent to those who think they can run from the long arm of the law.
In series two, the unit faces two knife-wielding robbers in a stolen Toyota, an 83-year-old driver who fails to pull over, and the Lakeside shopping centre car park is put under lockdown. There’s also a motorbike weaving through the traffic at 130 mph, and at that speed it's up to the hi-tech police chopper to stop him.
Friday Night Dinner (S2)Thursdays at 22:00
The Goodman family returns for a second helping of ground-breaking comedy.
In series two, Adam goes on a date with a girl who smells like Mum, Jonny starts going out with an older woman, Mum is forced out of the house by a mouse, dad starts drying fish in the downstairs cupboard, Jim makes a birthday cake for his dog Wilson, Grandma has an affair with a married man, and we meet dad’s mother – ‘Horrible Grandma’.
Featuring a stellar ensemble cast, Friday Night Dinner is a truly quirky, original series about growing up but not growing away.
- Sundays at 21:45
Stephen Fry and the world’s most impossible quiz is back for a brand new series of topics beginning with the letter J – from jargon, right through to jumpers and jobs.
Guests include QI regulars as Jimmy Carr, Jo Brand, David Mitchell and Sandi Toksvig, along with such less-frequent panellists as David O'Doherty, Brian Cox, Jason Manford and Rhys Darby. And Alan Davies retains his place as the ever-present clown and butt of Stephen Fry’s wicked wit.
