Noel Fitzpatrick

What’s a dog without a wagging tail? Taking on more cases of animals for whom all hope seems lost, Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick is back for a new eight-part series of incredible tales of veterinarian triumph. Giant schnauzer Florence is in so much pain following an accident several years ago that she has lost her wag. Can Neil bring her a little relief? Staffordshire bull terrier Lulu is rushed in late at night after being hit by a car, while Jack Russell Muffin has fallen from a six-foot verandah. Rating: ****

Safe House, 9.00pm, ITV

Safe House

After the nail-biting climax to last week’s episode, we can’t wait to find out what happens next! We won’t spoil the outcome of that part of the story, but elsewhere, persistent Tom makes a key breakthrough in the case when he spots a link. Can Tom persuade Jane to listen to his theory and will there be enough evidence to back it up? Either way, Tom’s digging does set some dramatic wheels in motion but will that help us finally solve the case? Rating: ****

Tribes, Predators & Me, 9.00pm, BBC2

Tribes, Predators & Me

For the final episode of the series, Gordon Buchanan is in Ethiopia to learn more about the hyena. He begins in the capital city of Addis Ababa where hyenas are said to prowl the streets at night scavenging for food. The hyena has one of the strongest bites of any animal and Gordon is warned never to turn his back, show fear or run from the hyena-shaped shapes visible in the trees. Next, Gordon heads to the Omo Valley where the Bodi people live. They are cattle-herders and face a daily struggle to protect their cows against the much-hated animals. But it’s back in an urban landscape, the city of Harar, where Gordon sees a different side to this much-maligned predator. Rating: ****
