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.
