Best on the Box
The award- winning series about reunited childhood sweethearts returns for a new season. After Alan’s ( Derek Jacobi) near- fatal heart attack at the end of last season, he and Celia ( Anne Reid) decide to get married as soon as possible. It’s news that is surely not going to go down well with opinionated daughters Caroline ( Sarah Lancashire) and Gillian ( Nicola Walker). But the two soon- to- be stepsisters already have their own problems to worry about.
If snakes and crocodiles aren’t your thing, this is probably not the episode for you. Dr Chris Brown ( pictured) takes on both these deadly creatures when he heads to Cairns to work at the local Marlin Coast Vet Clinic. First up is a croc in bad shape after losing a fight, followed by a massive python, which has been feasting on local pets. It’s probably not the best tourism ad for North Queensland, but it is interesting viewing.
