THE STORY OF ONLY FOOLS AND HORSES Tues­day - 8pm, Gold

WE all guf­fawed when we heard that Fifty Ways To Kill Your Mammy was big in Iran... and Baz and Nancy rubbed their hands with glee. Clas­sic com­edy Only Fools also struck it big abroad and in the fo­cus for tonight’s re­flec­tions, we see Boy­cie (John Chal­lis) on Ser­bian TV.

BAD MOVE Wed­nes­day - 8pm, UTV

BOY­CIE, you might re­mem­ber, took the ill-fated de­ci­sion to move his fam­ily from Peck­ham to the coun­try for The Green Green Grass ... which trig­gered a load of ob­vi­ous jokes and plots. As well as spin-offs rarely work­ing with the pos­si­ble ex­cep­tion of Frasier, ‘coun­try v city’ sit­coms are also rarely a good idea. Let’s hope Bad Move breaks the mould. The dry and sar­donic Steve (Jack Dee) and Nicky (Kerry Godi­man) make the move.

QUEEN OF KATWE Thurs­day - 8pm, Sky Dis­ney

FROM the out­side look­ing in chess seems to be a bit of a male bas­tion. So this feel­good film acts as a clar­ion call to break the chess ceil­ing if you will. Phiona Mutesi, a girl from the Ugan­dan slums be­comes the queen of the board. A true story, Mad­ina Nat­wanga (pic­tured) stars with David Oyelowo and Lupita Ny­ong’o in sup­port.

THE LIVE LOUNGE SHOW Fri­day - 8pm, BBC4

FLEET­WOOD Mac (the Ste­vie Nicks and Lind­say Buck­ing­ham line-up) had a dis­tinc­tive sound that is dif­fi­cult to cover, al­though it didn’t stop The Corrs try­ing. To be fair there are worse ver­sions of Dreams. Harry Styles (pic­tured) tries his hand at The Chain. We’re also in for a treat with songs from The Killers and London Gram­mar (the lat­ter I must con­fess to not hav­ing swot­ted up on).
