Peek at the week.

MONDAY: Bramwell (ITV, 8.00pm) The medical drama set in Victorian London returns with the first of two feature-length episodes this week. Jemma Redgrave stars as the feisty doctor Eleanor Bramwell, who is caught up in the Boer War effort - much to the irritation of her fiance Joe (Kevin McMonagle). Jenny Agutter joins the team and Scottish actor Iain Robertson also stars.

TUESDAY: Spoonface Steinberg (BBC2, 9.50pm) The moving radio play about an autistic Jewish child dying of cancer has been transferred to TV and promises to be just as powerful. Mark Strong, from Our Friends In The North, and Helen McCrory star. Ella Jones plays the seven-year-old Spoonface, who draws inspiration from the Nazi concentration camp victims.

WEDNESDAY: The Human Body (BBC1, 10.20pm) It is the turn of the human brain to go under the spotlight in this ground-breaking documentary series, with a look at how we think, feel and love. Professor Robert Winston demonstrates how the brain reacts to alcohol - helped along by several glasses of wine.

THURSDAY: Fantasy World Cup Live (ITV, 10.40pm) Former Sex Pistol and punk rock legend John Lydon guests on the irreverent World Cup football show hosted by David Baddiel and Frank Skinner. Tracy Ullman attempts to ignore all the usual laddish behaviour as she gives us a female view on the tournament.

FRIDAY: Frasier (Channel 4, 10.00pm) The bad new is that this is the final show in the current series. Frasier (Kesley Grammer) puts his job on the line when he refuses to read a radio advert that he feels will mislead his audience. The worse news is that fans will have to wait until next year for a new series.
