Secrets & Lies, 9.30pm, RTÉ Two
This six-part Australian drama was given a straight-to-series order when an American adaptation was proposed to US network ABC -which is some indication of what to expect. Ben Gundelach (Martin Henderson) is a run-of-the-mill family man living in Brisbane, a housepainter by trade, who discovers the body of a murdered four-year-old boy, who lived just down the road. Gundelach’s life begins to unravel as he becomes a prime suspect for the police and people start believing that he’s the murderer.
Endeavour, 8.00pm, UTV
Shaun Evans returns as young Morse in the second season of the hit crime drama and prequel to the much-loved Inspector Morse. The story’s now up to May 1966 and DC Endeavour Morse returns to Oxford City Police after a four-month absence that has left him wounded - and in mind more than body. Then, during a parade, a John Doe plummets to his death from a council building, and the initial investigation indicates anything but a routine suicide case.
Other Voices, 10.30pm, RTÉ Two
