MOVIE “The Ten Commandments” ⁄ 7:00pm (7) Charlton Heston, Yul Brynner and Anne Baxter star in director Cecil B. DeMille’s final film, the 1956 biblical epic about the life of Moses. The picture’s firstrate visual effects include the parting of the Red Sea — and bear in mind what a wonder that was for moviegoers at the time, well before the computer-generated effects of today. Yvonne De Carlo, Nina Foch, John Derek and Vincent Price co-star, with little Fraser Heston as the infant Moses.
Ransom ⁄ 8:00pm (13) The drama series concludes its season with “Bulletproof,” as Eric (Luke Roberts) is teamed uncomfortably with an old enemy to stop a hacker who has set explosives around the world. They’ll be activated unless the National Security Agency agrees to open highly classified files to the perpetrator — or unless Eric derails the plot first. Michael Ironside (“Top Gun”) guest stars. Sarah Greene, Brandon Jay McLaren and Nazneen Contractor also star.
The Son ⁄ 9:00pm (AMC) 10:00pm (AMC) 1:30am (AMC) In a scene that flashes back to 1849, young Eli (Jacob Lofland) struggles to find his place and learn to live among the Comanche tribe in the new episode “The Plum Tree.” Returning to the show’s present — 1915 — the adult Eli (Pierce Brosnan) clashes with Pete (Henry Garrett) over how to respond to an unexpected and unwarranted attack on their home.
Doctor Who ⁄ 9:00pm (BBC) 12:00am (BBC) As usual, the British creative team behind this venerable sci-fi⁄fantasy hit is playing its cards close to the vest as the show opens Season 10 of this contemporary reboot. Here’s what we do know: This will be the final season for title star Peter Capaldi, who is leaving the role of the Time Lord as head writer and executive producer Steven Moffat also departs at season’s end. The Doctor will have a new (female) companion named Bill Potts, played by Pearl Mackie, and match wits with a new villain (Nicholas Burns).
Peter Capaldi guest stars in “Doctor Who” on BBC America.
