THE GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF

BBC One, 8pm

When writing a piece about the Great British Bake Off, it's almost impossible not to fill it with as many baking-related puns as possible. And given that this second episode is biscuit week, there are options galore.

Who will be the first of the remaining 11 contestants to snap under the pressure? Who will crumble under Paul's steely gaze? Who'll be jammy and dodge elimination? Who's taken on bourbon they can handle? (To be fair, we never said they'd be any good). First up is the signature challenge, where the bakers have to make two dozen identical and elaborately decorated biscuits. Then there's more perfect piping needed in the technical bake, where they must try their hands at the fancy and delicate Viennese Whirls.

And then it's on to their own choice of structure for the gingerbread showstopper, which requires precision and skill - not to mention steady hands and nerves of steel. But some of them seem to be fighting gravity, with their buildings held together purely by luck and positive thinking. So who will be next to get dunked out of the tent?

Voight for justice

CHICAGO PD - DOUBLE BILL

Things have gotten personal.

Voight, vowing revenge on Pulpo for killing Willhite and shooting at Antonio, tells his team to have the drug lord delivered to him and Olinsky, without question, which of makes Halstead feel uncomfortable.

The Intelligence Unit decides to use Pulpo's lawyer for information, and they seek out a Spanish officer who can send him a death threat.

The attorney reveals Pulpo needs someone who can fake IDs and refers them to an old client, who has made them for him and his family many times before.

When Pulpo's wife's fake ID comes on to their radar, the Intelligence Unit the finds her and her son at a gas station.

But, there is no sign of Pulpo. Voight realises he used them as a diversion to throw them off the trail.

Pulpo is captured and Voight and Olinsky head out to the docks to kill him.

Halstead, knowing what Voight and Olinsky intend to do, tells a recovering Antonio that Voight has Pulpo. Antonio, remembering rumors Voight and Olinsky killed the murderer of Olinsky's old partner, says they might be at the docks.

During the intense confrontation, Halstead convinces the two that Pulpo will have his day in court.
