True love, wannabe millionaires and scary underground creatures
Over the next few days, Primeval and Million Pound Drop Live return to our screens – along with a moving new series bound to tug at your heartstrings…
Doctor Who stars David Tennant and Billie Piper are reunited in a new, week-long improvised series featuring some of the UK’s finest actors all about – you guessed it – true love.
Tragically, David and Billie don’t pick up where they left off in the Tardis – instead they join forces with Ashley ‘So Solid Crew’ Walters, Jane Horrocks and David Morrissey for in an improvised series, exploring five powerful and overlapping love stories set in the same town.
In the first episode, Nick is happily married, and his wife and children are everything to him. But when his first love appears out of the blue, he suddenly starts to question his life. Can they go back to what they had all those years ago?
BBC One – Sunday 17 June at 10.25pm (10.50 in Northern Ireland)
Then every evening till Wednesday 20th June
The new series picks up with the team one year after the death of Johnson and the mysterious disappearance of Danny, Connor and Abby. The ARC team has now been placed in the hands of entrepreneurial scientist Philip Burton (think Richard Branson with fancy lab equipment). There are inevitable tensions over who really runs ARC, and there are further complications when a giant mole-like creature emerges from a series of holes in the ground to attack the general public. Tricky.
While the giant mole-a-like is wreaking havoc, a mysterious new lab assistant, April, turns up to give Conor a hand at ARC. She’s almost a female Connor – scientifically minded, and loyal to Philip. But is there more to her than meets the eye? I’m guessing ‘yes’.

Plan B, Leona and Labrinth: Project Hackney
Project Hackney sees rapper Plan B go back to his old school, a pupil referral unit in Newham, East London, on a mission to change young lives. He joins forces with two other big East London names, Leona Lewis and Labrinth, to work with a group of teenagers at the school, gain their trust and help focus them on their future.
The stars may all have come from the East End, but they’re both surprised and moved when they come face to face with some of the unique challenges and experiences these young people face growing up in the Olympic boroughs today.
The musicians will also explore how important family, diversity and different neighbourhoods are in the Olympic boroughs, and how life in the inner city can affect opportunities for young people – for better and worse.
BBC3 – Sunday 17 June at 9pm
Million Pound Drop Live
Davina McCall presents the quiz show in which contestants can scoop £1million – as long as they can hold their nerve (and answer a few tricky questions). Every time they answer incorrectly, a bundle of cash disappears down the chute. Cruel. Will anyone be able to beat Davina and scoop the full £1m cash prize this time?
