Pick of the day

Station 19, 10.00pm, Sky Living & NOW TV

This brand-new series from the makers of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal - including Shonda Rhimes - following the firefighters of Seattle Fire Station 19, and is a Grey's off-shoot.

Practically raised at Station 19, Andy Herrera is a confident fire fighter who is also the daughter of Pruitt Herrera, the formidable head of the firehouse and the person who inspired her to join the SFD.

Joining her is Jack Gibson, her lieutenant and another of Captain Pruitt’s protégés and, while Andy plays by the rules, Jack is more passionate and energetic.

Among their dedicated team mates is a familiar face to Grey’s Anatomy fans: new recruit Ben Warren, who has recently traded in his scalpel at Grey Sloan for a new start at the station.

New or Returning Shows

Occupied, 9.00pm, Sky Atlantic

The first season of this Norwegian drama might have had a seemingly far-fetched plot (it centres on a Russian invasion), but it was excellent.

Fingers crossed this second run is as entertaining, and the opening episode sees the Russian occupation maintaining a firm grip on Norway – but an exile government is formed.
