QUICK BITES

The Beau­ti­ful World of Ugly Betty, 2.30pm, Seven This is the sort of back­ground ma­te­rial that’s sup­posed to ex­cite fans, where the pro­duc­ers string things out by re­hash­ing the plot with­out telling you any­thing you don’t al­ready know. Lost does it ev­ery other week. At least Seven has had the good grace not to pre­tend this is an episode, screen­ing it to­day in­stead of to­mor­row night. If you’re hop­ing to see Betty ( Amer­ica Fer­rera) with­out the braces and John Howard eye­brows you’ll be dis­ap­pointed. Young pro­duc­ers, creators and writ­ers only. Doc­tor Who, 7.30pm, ABC A Shake­spearean odyssey that be­gins in 1599 with some alien bad­dies who look re­mark­ably like Klin­gons. The Doc­tor and Ms Jones turn up at the Globe Theatre, where Love’s Labour’s Lost has just pre­miered. ‘‘ And those are men dressed as women, right?’’ asks Jones. ‘‘ Ah, Lon­don never changes,’’ quips the Doc.
