Rellik continues to scorch its way through Monday nights, while Star Trek: Discovery, and Pauline McLynn with David Rawle in Drop Dead Weird lead the charge of new and returning shows.

Pick of the Day

Rellik, 9.00pm, BBC One

Monday night is the perfect setting for downbeat TV, and this sharp, time-skipping drama has so far been great on gloom - and utterly compelling.

As we reach the mid-point of this murder-mystery six-parter, acid-scarred cop Gabriel and the team are dealing with the fact that another body has been discovered, and is seemingly the 'work' of the serial killer.

Questions are raised about Gabriel's suitability to be leading this case, and the rest of his team have to step up to the plate when he's called away on a personal mission - one that strikes at the heart of his family.

Gabriel's struggle to balance his relationships with the women in his life threatens to jeopardise the safety of his daughter and he finds himself faced with a father's worst nightmare.

Meanwhile, another suspect in the serial killer case emerges. When the truth of the brutal murder is finally revealed, it pushes shock levels up another notch.

Drop Dead Weird, 5.30pm, RTÉ2

Star Trek: Discovery, Netflix
Star Trek, one of the most iconic and influential global television franchises, returns to television 50 years after it first premiered with Star Trek: Discovery.

The series will feature a new ship, new characters and new missions, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers.

Star Trek: Discovery will follow the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new lifeforms. Among the crew is one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself.

Starting today, episodes will premiere on Netflix at 8am every Monday, following the US episode broadcast on CBS.

Don't Miss

The Vietnam War, 9.00pm, BBC Four & 11.35pm, RTÉ One

This is a ten-part, ten-hour documentary film series directed by legendary documentary-maker Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. Given Burns' outstanding track record, the series should tell the definitive story of the Vietnam War.

It features testimony from more than 60 witnesses, including many Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as Vietnamese combatants and civilians from both the winning and losing sides.

In episode one, after a long and brutal war, Vietnamese revolutionaries led by Ho Chi Minh end nearly a century of French colonial occupation.

With the Cold War intensifying, Vietnam is divided into two zones at the Geneva Conference. Communists in the North aim to reunify the country, while America supports Ngo Dinh Diem's untested regime in the South.

BBC Four will also screen episode two tonight.
