Tuesday viewing highlights with ATV Today Editor Doug Lambert for 9th October.

One to Watch: The Frankenstein Chronicles, 11.15pm, ITV, STV and UTV

It’s the final, 6th, episode in this the second series.

Three years have passed since John Marlott (Sean Bean) escaped from Daniel Hervey (Ed Stoppard). In 1830, we find him chained and manacled in a cell at Royal Bethlem Hospital, on a wing for the criminally insane. Marlott is lost in a nether world. Denied his resurrection and reunion with his family in heaven. He is unreachable, unresponsive – a broken man.

A visit by a local Reverend stirs Marlott. There is a glint of recognition. The visit causes a violent outburst and Marlott is administered electro-shock therapy. Terrible memories resurface, Hervey, Lady Jemima, Flora, his resurrection.  Suddenly Marlott is jolted back to life, with renewed purpose to seek revenge on Daniel Hervey for his crimes, and to redeem his soul after being wrongly convicted for murder.

London during this period is the capital of the world, the forefront of modernity of new advances in science and technology – the reason why the handsome German aristocrat Frederick Dipple (Laurence Fox) is in town. 

Tonight Marlott wakes in chains.  He learns that Frederick is the son of Johann Dipple, Hervey’s mentor, and the man who taught him the science of resurrection. Acting on a reliable tip off, the police join forces with the watchmen to catch Dipple.

The Great British Bake Off, 8pm, Channel 4

For the very first time on the show, vegan week takes place. A whole new level of ‘looks great, tastes horrid’ I suspect.

Judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood have set three very different challenges to test the remaining bakers – a savoury pastry Signature, with no butter involved, a Technical with a very unusual ingredient and a spectacular Showstopper that in the heat of the tent threatens to lead to catastrophe.

Who will keep their cool and win star baker? And who will be meeting their end? As ever, Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding are on hand to lend support to the contestants.
