What’s on telly tonight? Here the TV Times team of expert reviewers highlight the best shows on Sunday 18th March

The Durrells, 8.00pm, ITV

Exhale, grab a glass of wine and escape to the Greek islands, as a new series of this gorgeous family drama begins. Louisa (the impeccable Keeley Hawes) has given up on love in favour of learning to play the harp! To keep herself busy she’s interfering in her children’s lives instead, much to their horror. Larry is hobbling around with a suspected broken leg, Margo is bored beyond belief and Gerry is filling the house with even more animals, so it’s as chaotic as ever. But the most troublesome of the brood is Leslie, who is parading around Corfu with three girlfriends. This can’t end well… Perfect Sunday night telly. Rating: *****

The Good Karma Hospital, 9.00pm, ITV

The Good Karma Hospital

Pack your sunglasses and get set to head back to southern India, as this warm-hearted, yet powerful, medical drama returns for a second series. After finding her feet at the underfunded cottage hospital last year, British doc Ruby Walker (Amrita Acharia) is given more responsibility by the wonderfully eccentric Dr Lydia Fonseca (played by the superb Amanda Redman). And when there’s a power cut during her first solo night shift, Ruby has some difficult decisions to make. With some truly stunning scenery, moving storylines and fine performances from all our old favourites, this looks set to be another stellar series from writer Dan Sefton (Delicious, Trust Me). Rating: *****

Famously Unfit, 9.00pm, BBC2

Famously Unfit… For Sport Relief

It takes a brave celebrity to admit they’re unfit but for Tameka Empson, Les Dennis, Miles Jupp and Susannah Constantine, that confession proves to be the least of their worries as they take on a gruelling exercise regime in aid of Sport Relief. Supervised by Olympian turned sports scientist Professor Greg Whyte and Dr Zoe Williams, the foursome will spend 10 weeks getting in shape before taking on their final challenge. Rating: ****

More previews tomorrow
