• Quirke, BBC Entertainment, 20.00

A drama full of mystery, secrets and intrigue. From award-winning writers Andrew Davies and Conor McPherson, adapted from the books by John Banville, and set against a backdrop of whiskey-soaked bars and elegant Dublin houses brimming with sexual tension.

• The Boondocks, Sony MAX, 21.30

More social satire with the animated series which centres on two African-American kids who move from the tough inner city to live in the suburbs with their grandfather. The Freemans include narrator Huey, his gangsta rap-loving younger brother Riley and their grandfather, Robert, all voiced by Regina King and John Witherspoon. Often controversial in its themes, this anime and manga-style dark comedy series was created by Aaron McGruder, and is based on his comic strip of the same name.
