It's the finale of the BBC's bonkers drama Top of the Lake: China Girl, while Blathnaid Treacy sets up the weekend with Electric Picnic Preview

Pick of the day

Top of the Lake: China Girl, 9.00pm, BBC Two

Despite turning into something like an Australian tribute to Monty Python's Flying Circus, the second season of Jane Campion's murder mystery is great fun, thanks to a super cast, some utterly surreal characters and scenarios.

In the season finale, Robin and Pyke are plunged into a nightmare when Miranda reports that someone has been shot dead at Silk 41 - and Mary has been taken hostage by the gunman to Bondi Beach.

At the crime scene, the police are getting nowhere with a grief-stricken Mamasan Dang and the girls. Meanwhile, crucial security footage has been wiped, man of the moment Puss has disappeared, and there’s no dead body.

Time for a spot of tennis, I'd imagine.
