Richard E Grant presents this one-off special celebrating Agatha Christie and her most enduring literary creation, Hercule Poirot. The documentary will chart the origins and history of Hercule Poirot and trace the inimitable Belgian detective’s lasting impact upon popular culture.

24 Hours in Police Custody – 9PM, Channel 4

This episode of 24 Hours in Police Custody follows DCI Adam Gallop of the Major Crime Unit in Cambridgeshire who is in charge of the force’s most mystifying and complex murder inquiry. He believes that a man who disappeared in September 2015 has been brutally murdered but, so far, he hasn’t recovered the victim’s body; which means he can’t be sure what has happened to him and who might have killed him.

The police investigation takes officers from an urgent excavation in the woods across Europe in search of clues. Cameras follow every twist of the hunt for the body; a hunt that has become a personal mission for the officers involved. Then suddenly the case takes an extraordinarily dramatic turn – a new post appears on a Facebook page associated with the man.


The Circle – 10PM, Channel 5

Following last night’s double elimination, the two blocked players return as a new player called Tom. Meanwhile a brand new player enters the show as the competition enters its final week.
