Doc Martin, 9.00pm, ITV

Doc Martin 2017

Look who’s back! Martin Clunes’s mate Caroline Quentin is reprising her role of the Doc’s nemesis, holistic vet Angela. This time she’s got a nephew in tow, Toby, who is full of questions for anyone who will listen, which drives Louisa up the wall at school. But it looks like both Toby and Angela are in need of medical attention at the surgery – will they be too stubborn to see the doc? Meanwhile, Ruth and Bert grow ever more concerned for Mrs Tishell, who is now locking herself away and talking to her late husband Clive. So they decide that the only person who could talk her round is compassionate, sensitive pillar of the community… Martin. This could be interesting! Rating: *****

The Apprentice, 9.00pm, BBC1

The Apprentice Fired

There’s always one task where Lord Sugar goes all ‘modern’ on us (remember the bizarre “wearable” technology task from 2014?). Now it’s time for “Robot Wars”, as the candidates are given a prototype android to brand and pitch to retailers and a toy robot to sell to independent stores. Some monumental bickering leaves Karren fuming, and with some dodgy pitches and robots that don’t behave, it’s all thoroughly entertaining. But who’ll be programmed to leave the boardroom?

Long Lost Family Australia, 10.00pm, Really

The hit series embarks on a trip Down Under as Long Lost Family gets an Australian version

The hit series embarks on a trip Down Under as Long Lost Family gets an Australian version, in which intrepid presenters Anh Do and Chrissie Swan travel the length and breadth of the country to try and unite family members who have been separated for decades. This week begins with mum-of-four Emma, 36, who’s looking for her birth father Ken. All she knows is that he lived on Phillip Island, Victoria, where her parents met as teens in the summer of 1978. In New South Wales, Sian Cavanagh, 27 [pictured], is looking for the half-sister she’s never met and desperately wants to find. But does Alana know she exists? Rating: ****
