Pick of the Day

The Outsider, 9.00pm, Sky Atlantic & NOW TV

Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, Ben Mendelsohn and Jason Bateman star in what promises to be a gripping mystery following a seemingly straightforward case of the murder of a young boy.

Detective Ralph Anderson (Mendelsohn ) investigates the murder with all signs pointing to a popular high school teacher (Bateman) as the culprit.

But Ralph is mystified by the suspect’s iron-clad alibi and his investigation is thrown into a tailspin, so an unconventional private eye is brought into the case. Meanwhile an insidious supernatural force makes its presence known.

The White House Farm Murders, 10.00pm, Virgin Media One

Stephen Graham stars in this six-part drama based on the true story of the mass murder of a family in an Essex farmhouse in August 1985, promising a fresh insight into these tragic events.

Nevill and June Bamber were shot and killed inside their farmhouse, along with their adoptive daughter, Sheila Caffell, and Sheila's six-year-old twin sons, Daniel and Nicholas Caffell.

Police receive a call from the only surviving member of June and Nevill's immediate family, their adoptive son Jeremy. At first, it appears to be an open-and-shut case to investigating officer DCI Thomas 'Taff' Jones, but for DS Stan Jones, something doesn't feel right.
