The best TV shows tonight
The Great Briton Bake Off, 8:00 p.m. M., C4
Whether you’re a dunker or a cruncher, everyone loves Biscuit Week! For starters, bakers have to put a spin on brandy-filled snaps for the signature before tackling a jam-themed classic that brings back childhood memories for the technical. Paul and Prue then demonstrate that they are upping the ante this year by asking contestants to make an interactive toy entirely out of cookies – no pressure then! But who will take the cookie and be crowned Star Baker and who won’t like the way the cookie crumbles and goes home?
The Yorkshire Vet, 8 pm, channel 5
After finding out why a cow froths at the mouth and reassuring her concerned owners, veterinarian Peter Wright heads to the Greens’ farm to address one of his most reluctant patients. Dusty the cat has a wound, but as Peter knows very well, it is called ‘Devil Cat’ for a very good reason. Additionally, Julian operates a pigeon with a deformed leg brought in by a concerned member of the public, and vet Matt investigates what Rolo the cocker spaniel had for lunch, with some very surprising results.

Adapted from the novels by Isaac Asimov, this big-budget series stars The crown actor Jared Harris.

The rulers of the empire are understandably furious and he has been banished into exile. To preserve civilization, Hari and his followers venture to a distant region of the galaxy to establish a new society, The Foundation, on the planet Terminus. It is a place where they hope to preserve the science and knowledge of humanity, but there are enemies on other planets that they must also outsmart …
Best movie to watch on television tonight
Dark encounter, 11.20 pm, Movie 4
Exactly one year after the day their eight-year-old daughter disappeared, a grieving Pennsylvania family (led by Laura Fraser and Mel Raido) witnesses strange lights in the sky. But that is simply the beginning of a terrifying, but ultimately enlightening night. This chiller is an entertaining journey into the unknown, aided by a strong cast, especially Fraser. It is also surprising that all the actors are, in fact, British and it was filmed in Yorkshire.
