A trip to an art gallery takes Kim to the edge when the pupils de­face a valu­able paint­ing and she is rushed to hos­pi­tal suf­fer­ing from what she thinks are prac­tice con­trac­tions. Else­where, Philip’s ef­forts to in­spire Ros end up in a row about sex­ism and Steph’s re­la­tion­ship with Ol­lie hits the rocks. Drama, star­ring An­gela Grif­fin. Quiz, hosted by Der­mot Mur­naghan, in which the win­ners of fa­mous game shows work as a team to tackle a new set of chal­lengers hop­ing to win a cash prize. The poignant and of­ten hi­lar­i­ous ex­ploits of a group of young friends grow­ing up in Stan­ley Place, forms the ba­sis of this new one-off. Penned by Leo Richardson, it cen­tres on sassy fashion de­signer Deb­bie who lives with her gin­swig­ging, se­rial in­ter­net-dat­ing Aun­tie Pat. Deb­bie’s out­fits are as out­ra­geous as the erotic fic­tion she writes and her con­fi­dent air fu­els her be­lief that no man can re­sist her charms. Across the road from Deb­bie lives emo-devo­tee Ann, who is con­vinced that she was a Bo­hemian poet in a past life. Ann’s on-off ro­mance with Lee Stevens, a typ­i­cal “boy” who al­ways seems to get things wrong, pro­vides her with enough angst to keep her po­etry flow­ing.

Watchdog (BBC1, 8pm)

Anne Robin­son, Matt All­wright and Anita Rani in­ves­ti­gate the num­ber of tax er­rors made by Her Majesty’s Rev­enue & Cus­toms and hear about the dif­fi­culty some peo­ple have in get­ting mis­takes rec­ti­fied. They also re­port on pet in­sur­ers who are re­fus­ing to pay out for in­creas­ingly ex­pen­sive vet­eri­nary bills. Last in the se­ries.

Bradley Walsh presents as four con­tes­tants pit their wits against ruth­less quiz ge­nius the Chaser in the hope of win­ning a po­ten­tial prize pot worth thou­sands of pounds. They must work as a team and play strate­gi­cally to an­swer gen­eral knowl­edge ques­tions against the clock and race down the game board to the exit with­out be­ing caught.
