All Creatures Great and Small

Three months have passed since the end of series one. A trip back home to Glasgow presents James with a dilemma that will mean choosing between the people he loves. As Helen and James navigate their feelings for one another, Siegfried, Tristan and Mrs Hall are also forced to consider their places in the world, while James must decide between supporting his family and following his heart.

It’s an important day for Tristan in more ways than one, as he celebrates his birthday and Siegfried gives him brand new responsibilities as a vet. Tristan has to withstand the pressure and succeed in the challenge set by his older brother before returning to Skeldale for his birthday festivities.

However, things unravel when Siegfried catches wind of the fact that Tristan might not have been telling him the whole truth about the events of his special day.

Also, Mrs Hall reminds James that he needs to tell Helen some home truths. A miscommunication pushes the issue to the surface unexpectedly — turning Tristan’s happy evening into a turbulent one, with big consequences.

All Creatures.. 7pm, Channel 5


Midsomer Murders

Victor Karras has been at the helm of Karras Games for over 50 years, transforming the family-run business which creates beautifully handmade board games. Since the Karras family have made their fortune in games, Victor’s pregnant wife ELEANOR decided that to celebrate her husband’s 70th birthday, it only seemed fitting to build such a celebration around a game and so arranged a murder mystery weekend. Gathering at Hulton Manor, a sprawling edifice on its own island, a storm rages outside adding to the immersive experience of the fictional murder playing out in front of them, until Victor tumbles down the stairs, and is impaled by a life-size Egyptian figure– killing him for real.

As Barnaby and Winter arrive to investigate, Fleur informs them that Victor was not killed when impaled by the Anubis but was dead before he hit the ground – he was poisoned with cyanide. With this, the team reason that it was likely administered in something he ate or drank in the 30 minutes before his death, giving them their window.
