Electric Dreams, 10.00pm, Channel 4
Following on from the acclaimed - and hugely enjoyable - first run of Electric Dreams, the sci-fi anthology series continues with four more episodes inspired by Philip K Dick's short stories.
In this episode, SAG Award winner and Academy Award nominee Greg Kinnear (As Good As It Gets) stars as The Father in The Father Thing.
The world's under attack as aliens quietly invade Earth. Young hero Charlie (Jack Gore) must make the most difficult decisions imaginable to protect his mother (Mireille Enos) and the human race, as he's among the first to realise the threat.

The Walking Dead, 9.00pm, NOW TV and Fox
The bloodshed continues as The Walking Dead returns for its season 8 mid-season premiere, and every person remaining in the walker-ravaged world is affected.
The communities are fractured, Alexandria has been destroyed, the Hilltop find themselves pinned and the Kingdom is shattered - half of them dead, while the other half are controlled by the Saviors.
And at the centre of it all is Rick, who is rocked by the news that Carl, who heroically shepherded the Alexandrians to safety during Negan’s attack, has been bitten by a walker. So that's him screwed.
As all-out-war rages on, the line between good and evil continues to blur.
Seasons 1-8a are available on Sky Box Sets and NOW TV.

Trauma, 10.00pm, TV3
John Simm and Adrian Lester head the cast of this three-part thriller, written by Mike Bartlett, the guy behind the delightfully bonkers Doctor Foster.
The three-part psychological thriller centres on two fathers, Dan and Jon (Simm and Lester). Their lives collide when Dan’s 15-year-old son Alex is stabbed and tragically dies in the trauma department attended by high-achieving consultant Jon Allerton.
Devastated, heartbroken and pushed to the edge, Dan believes Jon is responsible for Alex’s death. As he strives for what he believes is justice, Dan begins to unpick the very fabric of Jon's life as his own unravels in the wake of Alex’s killing.
