BEST OF THE REST

THE HEIST Sky One, 9pm

A BIT like Celebrity Hunted, this sees 10 law-abid­ing cit­i­zens given the chance to pull off a heist.

In this bizarre, but strangely com­pelling game show, the team is given the op­por­tu­nity to steal £250,000. But they will have to hide their stash of cash from a crack team of de­ter­mined de­tec­tives for 16 days if they want to keep it. What fol­lows is a game of cat and mouse as they try to evade cap­ture.

In this episode the play­ers meet and pore over the pho­tos, blue­prints and maps which ex­plain where the cash will be. Then they plot their tran­sit van raid.

It’s a bit like watch­ing a poor man’s Ocean’s Eleven. Es­pe­cially since the most crim­i­nally-minded any of them has ever been was steal­ing pick and mix sweets from Wool­worths as a child.

Do they have what it takes to be rob­bers? It will be fun to find out.

THE SIN­NER Net­flix

FANS who have al­ready seen this af­ter it aired a few weeks ago in Amer­ica have been rav­ing about this sec­ond se­ries. Star­ring Bill Pull­man as De­tec­tive Harry Am­brose, in­set, it’s a dark and twisty thriller, with el­e­ments of hor­ror and the su­per­nat­u­ral, too.

This new story sees the cop lured back to his home­town in ru­ral New York to help in­ves­ti­gate a dou­ble mur­der with an old pal’s daugh­ter, De­tec­tive Heather No­vack (Na­talie Paul).

A cou­ple have been found dead, ap­par­ently poi­soned, in a mo­tel room. The killer? Their 13-year-old son Ju­lian. “It wasn’t sup­posed to hurt,” he says, in chill­ing and un­set­tling scenes.

But de­tails emerge that make this even more com­pli­cated. They were go­ing on a trip, but hadn’t packed for him. What were they plan­ning to do with him, and what is he hid­ing?

A grip­ping, hide-be­hind-the-cush­ions mys­tery.

Steal­ing the cash is just the start
