Here the TV Times team of expert reviewers highlight three of the best shows on telly tonight for Wednesday 27th September including brand new comedy The Pact

The Pact, 10.00pm / BBC2 (Friday, NI)

The Pact 27th September

Amy is single, living in a rented flat-share and hungover after a one-night stand; Andy is a divorced father. Twenty years ago, while they were teenagers, Amy and Andy made a pact that if they were still single when they were 35 they would get married. When they meet again at a party it forces them both to confront their pasts. Will Amy finally grow up? And will Andy pursue his teenage crush? Sarah Solemani is perfectly cast as tragic Amy. Just as this pilot gets going, it’s over. Let’s hope a series is commissioned. Rating: ****

Doc Martin, 9.00pm, ITV

Doc Martin 2017

.

We’re so glad to be back in Portwenn! Martin Clunes is at his deadpan best tonight, utterly incredulous that Buddy the dog has chewed his stethoscope, while Louisa has bigger fish to fry. She’s trying to work out why little girl Astrid Trappett doesn’t want to go to school, and also attempting to find childcare for her own son, James Henry (you’ll be surprised to learn Martin isn’t helping to win over the staff at Portwenn Tots). Plus there’s a new visitor to the village, John (Art Malik), who is unaware he has a shocking connection to Ruth… will she reveal it? The usual mix of hilarity, drama and absolute charm makes for a wonderful hour in front of the box. Rating: *****

Bad Move, 8.00pm, ITV

Bad Move

So life ‘In’t Dip’ isn’t all it’s cracked up to be for Steve (Jack Dee) and Nicky (Kerry Godliman). This second episode doesn’t get off to a great start when Nicky and Steve find their kitchen flooded. Steve spies a way to turn their latest run of bad luck into a money-making opportunity. Nicky, meanwhile, takes a more practical approach to their fast-dwindling finances and starts walking a villager’s dog for a bit of extra cash. Rating: ***
