Monroe Monday, STV, 9pm James

Nesbitt is back in a second series as neurosurgeon Gabriel Monroe. And, yes, like Hugh Laurie in House, Monroe is a "flawed genius", which means it's great telly but you wouldn't want him anywhere near you in real life.

In the opening episode Paul Herd (Jody Latham) and his pregnant wife Julie (Julia Haworth) ask Monroe for help after Paul has been refused surgery by other hospitals for a dangerous neurological condition.

Meanwhile Monroe is faced with his own problems, including challenges from his ex-wife and son.

Red Dwarf X Thursday, Dave, 9pm

The comedy sci-fi series has found a home on Dave for the 10th series. It's three years since the Back to Earth mini-series, which was also made for Dave after a 10-year abscence from our screens. The new series has a more back-to-basics feel that older fans of the original series will be thankful for.

Danny John-Jules and Craig Charles, pictured above, return as Cat and Dave Lister, the last known human alive. Robert Llewellyn plays robot Kryten and Rimmer, the hologram played by Chris Barrie, is back and once again trying to pass his astronavigation exam to become a Space Corps high flyer.
