Created in 1954 by monks working at the BBC, this series has spent more than half-a-century entertaining viewers in a variety of formats: 3D, black and white, and now smellovision. Okay, it is a BBC show, but the rest of those bold statements are, of course, whopping big lies. The question is: how will the regulars and special guests get on this week. That remains to be seen as host Rob Brydon welcomes David Mitchell and Lee Mack, along with guests Dara O Briain, Denise Van Outen, Rhod Gilbert and Vernon Kay. When it launched a few years ago, Mack played down the fact it bore a similarity to much-loved game show of old Call My Bluff, but thankfully he and his fellow series regulars have managed to make the show work on its own merits.

LATER WITH JOOLS HOLLAND BBC2, 11.05pm It's impossible not to love Seasick Steve, the American blues man whose latest LP, Hubcap Music, is out now - and who says of the album "It's called Hubcap Music because I play some of the songs on a guitar made out of two hubcaps and a garden hoe". Two, New York indie bands also appear, in the form of Vampire Weekend and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

DARK WATER BBC1, 11.50pm Dahlia moves with her daughter into a run-down apartment during a messy divorce. As she struggles to cope with her custody battle, she is tormented by strange noises, an ominous leak in the ceiling and the growing fear that the flat has a sinister life of its own. When her daughter befriends an imaginary playmate, it confirms Dahlia's suspicions that something otherworldly is happening. Horror remake, starring Jennifer Connelly, Pete Postlethwaite, Tim Roth and John C Reilly.
