QUICK BITES

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.
