She Drives Me Crazy, 8.30pm, Hallmark
A man kisses his wife goodbye, walks out the door and she never sees him again. It’s always a big ask when we are expected to sympathise with the passing of someone who has had exactly one line of dialogue (‘‘ Goodbye, sweetie’’). Still, the scenes of Krista Bridges as Virginia, curled up at night in bed with her dead husband’s dressing- gown, almost make up for that. Quite quickly, as Virginia’s estranged sister Blithe ( Melinda Clarke) beseeches her to visit, the movie turns into a road trip in which the sisters relive their childhoods and reconnect.
Talking Heads, 6.30pm, ABC1
Ita’s on TV again. Just a few weeks after her genealogical appearance on Who Do You Think You Are? , Buttrose covers slightly different ground with Peter Thompson. The would- be opera singer who followed her father into journalism explains how growing up in a household filled with conflict and rough and tumble brothers gave her the fortitude to scale the corporate ladder.
William & Kate: A Royal Romance, 7.30pm, Nine
The Windsor fairytale of British royal life continues and is now all handsome princes and their gorgeous companions. The injection of glamour Diana provided for the gene pool looks to have secured the line of beauty for generations to come. If Kate Middleton does marry Prince William, pictured, she may have to spend the rest of her life opening things while wearing beige suits and ugly hats. No wonder the poor gel is skittish as a piebald mare.
