Death in Paradise (S3)Fridays at 20:00
Bringing a dose of sunshine back to the small screen, Death in Paradise returns for more impossible murders on the beautiful Caribbean island of Saint Marie.
The series opens with the shocking murder of DI Richard Poole, an event that heralds the arrival of new detective DI Humphrey Goodman, who is quite unlike his predecessor. Disorganised and gawky, Humphrey’s rather bumbling and accident-prone ways mean he doesn’t make the greatest first impression on Camille, Fidel and Dwayne, who are battling their grief for their friend as well trying to catch his killer.
All dishevelled British charm, but with a razor-sharp insight into crime solving, can Humphrey win the team round and prove he’s the man for the job?

It's 1914, and for the American entrepreneur Harry Gordon Selfridge, business at his world famous Selfridge & Co. department store on London's Oxford Street is booming.
As the store celebrates its fifth year of trading, rumours of a coming war in Europe are gathering pace. Harry tries to prepare his staff for the potential changes ahead, while making sure his profits stay high. If war does arrive, he knows the business must do its bit on the home front, and work to keep British morale high.
Dark days lay ahead for both the business and the nation, but Harry is determined to see them out with his trademark flair and passion.
Deal or No Deal (S4)From Thursday 31 July at 17:30
This hit game show features 22 players, one of whom could win up to £250,000. There are 22 sealed boxes, but only one question: deal or no deal?
The chosen contestant picks one box that potentially contains their prize. They then spend the duration of the show opening the remaining boxes, one by one, revealing the money they contain. The aim is to try and pick boxes that contain the lowest amounts of money, adding hope that their box contains a high amount of money and in turn provoking The Banker to offer them a better deal. If a contestant chooses to accept a deal, the game is played out in exactly the same way to determine whether they dealt at the correct moment, or could have walked away with more cash.
Big School (S1)Tuesdays at 19:55
Chemistry teacher Mr Church is in his 40s, unsuccessful both in love and in engaging 30 teenage kids in his madcap experiments. Everything changes when enthusiastic French teacher Miss Postern joins the school, desperate to bring the romance and poetry of French culture to her pupils, despite having never actually been to France.
Mr Church soon falls hopelessly in love. But with own social awkwardness, the competing attentions of would-be lothario PE teacher Mr Gunn and the degenerate nature of other staff – irreverent headmistress Ms Baron, nosey drama teacher Mrs Klebb, pessimistic geography teacher Mr Barber and wannabe rock star music teacher Mr Martin – will Mr Church ever get his femme fatale?
