Orla Brady is amongst the cast on tonight's Poirot on UTV

Orla Brady is amongst the cast on tonight’s Poirot (8.00pm, UTV), while Chicago Fire (8.00pm, Sky Living) sees two of the Firehouse 51 crew experience a major shock – and it’s the final episode of Mitchell and Webb’s Ambassadors (9.00pm, BBC Two)

Agatha Christie's Poirot, 8.00pm, UTV

Orla Brady is a guest star in the latest from David Suchet as Poirot suffers depression after failing to prevent the murder of a society girl by notorious art thief Marrascaud. His confidence shattered, Poirot returns to work when a lonely chauffeur begs him to find his missing soulmate, the maid of a famous Russian dancer. The investigation takes him to the Swiss Alps, where, against all odds, he stumbles upon a hotel thought to be Marrascaud's hideout.

Ambassadors, 9.00pm , BBC Two

It’s part three and goodbye to this amusing show starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb. A party at the embassy marking the Tazbek president's platinum jubilee is disrupted by gunfire and explosions as the army tackles an anti-government uprising, and Davis decides to set out on a mission to meet the rebel leader. Meanwhile, legendary Foreign Office interrogation specialist Mr Jackson arrives to find out if any members of staff have been spying - which is bad news for Neill.

Chicago Fire, 8.00pm, Sky Living

Always worth a watch, this show offers fine ensemble acting mixed with great action scenes. It’s another eventful day for Firehouse 51 when a straightforward call-out turns into a shocker for Dawson and Shay, proving ‘routine’ has no place in a paramedic’s vocabulary. Severide’s efforts to implicate Hadley in the arson attacks also go awry. Elsewhere, tensions continue to rise between Clarke and the team, and Chief Boden challenges Gail over her cost-cutting measures.
