SOAP UPDATE EMMERDALE STV, 7pm & 8pm EMMERDALE takes over your TV tonight with a single, then double episode -- and there's lots going on. Zak is convinced something inappropriate has happened between Gerry and Liv and decides to take action.

Meanwhile, Lisa is concerned about Sam's plan. And there's comedy when Vanessa and Charity inadvertently lock themselves in the Woolpack cellar. But they take solace in a bottle of whisky, which leads to some drunken antics and just a little bit of passion too.

EASTENDERSBBC1, 7.30pm EMOTIONS are all over the place tonight for Mick, who is reeling after Linda's cancerscare bombshell. He realises he needs to get her to a doctor but is also frustrated that Woody knew all along, and he didn't.

Meanwhile, Tom is still making silent phone calls to the Mitchell house, so Sharon and Michelle speak to the police. And there's a particularly tense scene when Jane wakes up to find herself alone with Max. The question is, what can she remember?

COMEDY RED DWARF XII DAVE, 9pm THIS off-the-wall cult comedy, which had a hit revival last year, now moves into its 12th series.

You're either a long-time cheerleader of the show or not but for fans it's a joy to see original cast members Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Craig Charles (Lister), Danny John-Jules (Cat) and Robert Llewellyn (Kryten) still having a ball on set.

And why wouldn't they? It's essentially four blokes messing around, pretending to be spacemen. Not a bad way to earn a crust.

In this opening episode, after trying to fix Starbug's faulty steering, the crew come across a Scientific Research Centre where several figures from history have been recreated in the present and "cured" of evil.

This leads to an awkward dinner party, with guests including Joseph Stalin, Vlad the Impaler and Adolf Hitler ("Please, call me Dolfy"). Dolfy also makes a lovely choux pastry, we're told. But have they really been cured of evil?

DOCUMENTARY MURDER MAPS YESTERDAY, 9pm HERE'S a third series of the show that investigates some of the most notorious, shocking and surprising murder cases in history, hosted by Nicholas Day.

And the tales are often rather gruesome. This first episode examines the horrifying discovery made in a trunk at the left luggage office of Brighton railway station in 1934.

Two days later, a similar trunk was found at King's Cross station, London. It sparked a major police investigation that took an unexpected turn.

DRAMA DYNASTY Netflix WAS the hit show of the 80s, with millions of us enthralled by the turbulent lives of the wealthy Carrington clan.

The US soap, which starred John Forsythe, Linda Evans and Joan Collins, was packed with steamy scenes, epic slaps across the face, big houses, luxury cars and plenty of champagne.

And you'll be delighted to hear that this reboot, from the creator of teen hits The OC and Gossip Girl, is no different, with lots of overacting and melodrama.

Fallon Carrington (Elizabeth Gillies) is charismatic and cunning - she's a bit Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls - and poised to take over her father's global energy empire. Then her dad Blake (Grant Show) introduces Fallon and her brother Steven (James Mackay) to their new stepmother-to-be, Cristal (Nathalie Kelley).

Cristal is almost as young as Fallon and she's ready to sink her perfectly manicured nails into the family Hot on the murder trail

AN HOUR TO CATCH A KILLER WITH TREVOR MCDONALD STV, 9pm A YEAR ago, Alice Ruggles was brutally murdered in her flat by a jealous ex-boyfriend who had been obsessively stalking her.

Soldier Trimaan "Harry" Dhillon was jailed for life after slashing her throat several times having climbed into her flat through an open window on October 12, 2016.

Alice was discovered by her flatmate, and we hear the harrowing 999 call: "Alice, Alice, Alice, oh my God, she's dead, she's dead."

Sir Trevor McDonald presents this unique film, which follows the homicide squad during the so-called golden hour - the allimportant 60 minutes following an incident.

Sir Trevor says: "The murder squad has to move fast. The decisions made in the first hour of a homicide investigation, when the evidence is fresh and uncontaminated, can make or break a case."

With the Northumbria Police squad wearing body cams, we are taken inside the crime scene, giving unrestricted access to the heart of the investigation. And it makes for compelling viewing.

Lead investigator DCI Lisa Theaker, works to secure the crime scene and corroborate witness statements.

She says: "The priority for me is securing evidence as quickly as possible. Where's my offender? That's a real priority for me because there will be a wealth of forensic evidence on them."

As the evidence stacks up, there are chilling moments, such as a call weeks earlier from Alice to police asking for advice on dealing with an ex-boyfriend who won't leave her alone. "I feel a bit shaken up tonight," she explains.

And as the clock ticks during the golden hour, there are more sad moments as Sir Trevor interviews Alice's grieving parents, Clive and Sue.

"The worst thing is that when I used to go home at the end of the day, she'd be waiting for me," says Sue.
