Townsville Bulletin - - TV GUIDE -

ABC, Fri­day, 8.30pm This en­ter tain­ing Bri­tish drama, based on the book of the same name by Ju­lian Barnes, sees Martin Clunes ( Doc Martin) play cel­e­brated nov­el­ist and physi­cian Ar thur. Tonight, he is de­ter­mined to prove all his doubters wrong, and find out for him­self if Ge­orge ( Ar­sher Ali), a young so­lic­i­tor re­cently re­leased from prison for crimes of which he claims in­no­cence, has been hid­ing any­thing.

Fa­ther Brown

ABC, Satur­day, 7.30pm We all love a mur­der- mys­ter y, and this is one of the murki­est around. Thank good­ness for crime- bust­ing priest Fa­ther Brown ( Mark Wil­liams), who has cer tainly got his work cut out for him tonight. The death of bar­maid Sylvia Swann ( Maya Grant) at the stone cir­cle of a po­lio- stricken vil­lage leads him to con­clude that dark forces are at work. Her friend, Gin­nie God­den ( Holly Lu­cas), is ar­rested af­ter be­ing the last per­son to see her alive, but Fa­ther Brown finds ev­i­dence to link lo­cal herbal­ist Mal­colm ( Nigel Cooke) to the mur­der site. Was she rit­u­ally sac­ri­ficed to heal the po­lio vic­tims?

Grand De­signs

ABC, Sun­day, 7.40pm The jux­ta­po­si­tion be­tween the beau­ti­ful Ir­ish countr yside and a strik­ing mod­ernist de­sign make tonight’s view­ing a spe­cial treat. Host Kevin McCloud meets am­bi­tious young ar­chi­tect Pa­trick Bradley, who has de­signed a home for him­self in the idyl­lic sur­rounds of County Derr y, in North­ern Ire­land. Bur rather than tak­ing his cues from the rus­tic sur­rounds of na­ture, Bradley’s blue­print is a cel­e­bra­tion of his love of mid- cen­tur y de­sign and clean, bold lines.

The Blacklist

SEVEN, Mon­day, 9.30pm On the list of ac­tors who would have been too good to waste their time on a TV show 20 years ago, James Spader would surely be near the top of the list. But, thanks to the So­pra­nos revo­lu­tion, it’s now pretty com­mon­place. And it’s a good thing, too, be­cause with­out Spader, this US drama se­ries prob­a­bly doesn’t work. Tonight, for­mer bad guy turned FBI in­for­mant Ray­mond “Red” Red­ding­ton ( Spader) helps the feds as they in­ves­ti­gate the dis­ap­pear­ance of a cult leader who has dan­ger­ous ship­ping con­tain­ers buried on his proper ty.

Ju­lia Zemiro’s Home De­liver y

ABC, Wed­nes­day, 9pm The suc­cess of this hear t- warm­ing se­ries is no se­cret. When host Ju­lia Zemiro takes her guests back to the for­ma­tive places of their youth, mem­o­ries come flood­ing back in a pow­er­ful way that sim­ply look­ing at a pho­to­graph can’t con­jure. Tonight, Zemiro is in Lon­don to spend a day with mu­si­cian and po­lit­i­cal ac­tivist Billy Bragg.

Blast from the past: Billy Bragg leads Ju­lia Zemiro on a trip down mem­ory lane in Ju­lia Zemiro’s Home De­liv­ery.
