The X-Files Channel 5, 9pm
New series. The sci-fi mystery drama returns as former FBI agents Mulder and Scully are reunited on a temporary basis by cable TV host Tad O'Malley, who wants their help to expose a sinister organisation that he believes is using inexplicable powers to control the American population. O'Malley introduces them to Sveta, whose story of bright lights and alien abduction is initially dismissed as flimsy, but Mulder's attitude to the case gradually changes, as does his opinion towards reopening the X-Files. Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny star.
