Cold Case, 8.30pm, Nine In long ago 1984, a fa­ther is proud be­cause his son has qual­i­fied for the ju­nior Olympic train­ing pro­gram in wrestling. But daddy is not proud of his di­rec­tion­less younger son, who soon goes miss­ing, and whose skele­ton is found more than 20 years later by builders on a con­struc­tion site. Sounds like a job for Cold Case . House, 8.30pm, Ten A sex worker, a fox in sheep’s cloth­ing, turns up at the house of a ner­vous, mid­dle- aged . . . wo­man. Just as the client is about to pay in ad­vance, she passes out cold. The sex worker, the orig­i­nal whore with a heart of a gold, sticks around at the hospi­tal. Un­for­tu­nately, House, the only doc­tor who can fix any­thing, is on a plane with Cuddy and a troop of se­ri­ously ill pas­sen­gers high above the North Pole. Hy­per­drive, 9.30pm, ABC An as­ter­oid look­ing sus­pi­ciously like a gi­ant potato ap­pears on the hori­zon. Peace talks over own­er­ship are to be hosted by Com­man­der Henderson ( Nick Frost, pic­tured). ‘‘ Let’s talk, man to thing, to, um thingie,’’ Henderson says. My re­mote, s’il vous plait . . . Medium, 9.30pm, Ten Alison feels cold and her dreams take her to a snow­storm in a pine for­est. She seems happy enough, un­til a bliz­zard sets in. Joe has to face his first day back at work af­ter the trauma of the siege a few episodes ago. Sur­prise, sur­prise, there’s a killer on the loose who freezes his vic­tims.
