Albert: The Power Behind Victoria, 8.35pm, Channel 5

As fans of ITV’s Victoria know, Prince Albert was not only the husband and great love of Queen Victoria. He played a huge role in changing the face of Britain. He was an avid campaigner for better housing, working conditions and leisure opportunities for the poor, and was responsible for many of the country’s national treasures, including the Natural History Museum and Crystal Palace. This feature-length docu-drama, narrated by actress Samantha Bond, explores the life of the man whose role in British history is significant, and shows how much of his legacy still remains today. Rating: ****

Killing Eve, 9.25pm, BBC1

As the hit spy thriller continues this week, psychopath Villanelle (Jodie Comer) is still carrying out her cold-blooded kills across Europe. When the ruthless assassin murders a colonel in the Chinese army at a fetish ‘clinic’ in Berlin, ‘secret’ agents Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) and colleague Bill Pargrave travel to Germany to investigate. While Eve and Bill follow a number of promising leads, it seems Villanelle is rather enjoying the cat-and-mouse game of having them on her trail. Can she evade capture? The dynamic between Jodie’s bold-as-brass assassin and Sandra’s put-upon spy is making this an extremely watchable series. Rating: ****
