NEVER NEVER (CHANNEL 4, 9pm)

THE debt business and loan sharks provide the setting for award-winning writer Tony Marchant's latest cutting-edge drama.

The Channel 4 offering follows the fortunes of a charming loan agent as he sucks the blood from the residents of a tough, poverty-stricken housing estate.

"You can't help but like him," insists Tony. "Him and his firm come across as benevolent, as friends of the family. He's a loan dolphin more than a loan shark - until you can't meet your repayments. Then he beings to resemble his heavier counterparts."

THE LAST MORSE (ITV, 10pm)

WHEN did the Queen get excited at the prospect of meeting Inspector Morse? And how did former BBC Director General react to a planned two-hour drama about an opera-loving, crossword-solving Oxford detective - with a distinct lack of car chases and bed-hopping?

On the eve of the last ever Morse drama - to be screened next week - The Last Morse looks at the appeal of the super-sleuth.

There are exclusive interviews with John Thaw and Kevin Whately about the partnership they first brought to the screen in 1987 and a look behind the scenes of the making of the final programme.

Guest stars Joanna David, Frances Barber and Patricia Hodge talk about the magic of Morse and creator Colin Dexter explains why he finally chose to kill off his famous hero.
