DRAMA of the week; AN EVIL STREAK, Monday, ITV, 9.00pm; Wife's worry for the mistress.

HAVING engineered the affair between David (Richard Dillane) and Gemma (Rosalind Bennett), Alex (Trevor Eve) finds events soon spiral out of control.

David's wife, Catherine (Lynsey Baxter), warns Alex that Gemma will get hurt.

David has had several affairs before and Gemma is only one of a long line of women who David has wooed and then abandoned. The idea of passion followed by betrayal excites Alex - but since his intention is for Gemma to eventually leave David he is not unduly worried by the warnings.

He is, however, extremely curious and interested in Catherine, a wronged wife who seems more concerned about the mistress than herself.

David gives Alex a present to give to Gemma and, to Alex's surprise, confesses that he has fallen in love with her.

Alex spends Christmas with Chris, Gemma and her mother Beatrice. When Alex gives Gemma the present - a pendant with her birth sign - as if it is from him, she knows who it is from and is over the moon.

FILMof the week: DEATHWISH II, Wednesday, CH5, 10.00pm

CHARLES Bronson stars in follow-up movie, Death Wish II. It's a brutal action sequel about a vigilante called back into action when he is robbed by a group of young criminals.

After trying to build a new life following the murder of his wife and the rape of his daughter, the actions of the youthful muggers drive Paul Kersey into another bout of retributive gun violence.

Jill Ireland also stars in this sequel which is not nearly as good as the original, but then isn't that always the case?

SOAPof the week: HOLLYOAKS, Monday and Thursday, CH4, 6.30pm

WAIT until the TV watchdog people see this week's Hollyoaks - lesbian kissing scenes at tea-time.

Phil Redmond brought you your first lesbian kiss in Brookside a good few years ago now and there was uproar.

Now he's at it again in his teen-soap as a good old heart-to-heart between Jas (Elly Fairman) and Ruth (Terri Dwyer) over a bottle of wine leads to something more.

The next morning, Ruth is not a happy girl at all, as she regrets her night of passion with her flatmate.

Oh dear. Sparks will fly.
