Today's top TV includes the return of The Good Karma Hospital and Red Dwarf, it’s the end of the road for Noughts + Crosses, and there’s the self-explanatory documentary Coronavirus: How Clean is Your House?
Pick of the Day
The Good Karma Hospital, 11.15pm, RTÉ One
The enjoyable, 'prime time Sunday night’ kind of show, a chummy medical drama set in southern India, starring Amrita Acharia, Neil Morrissey and Amanda Redman, returns for a third season.
So naturally we show it near to midnight on a Thursday.
After months away with her family, Ruby returns to the hospital for her pregnant sister to give birth. But when a life-or-death medical crisis develops, she is forced to decide where her loyalty lies.
Meanwhile, Greg gets a surprise family visitor.
Coronavirus: How Clean is Your House? 8.00pm, Channel 4
With the bulk of the UK population - like ourselves - staying in their homes for fear of getting infected by the coronavirus, this documentary looks at just how safe it is behind closed doors.
Two families have their houses forensically swept for fingerprints to find evidence of what they may be unwittingly spreading around.
There’s also a look at how Covid-19 uses people's behaviour to get inside in the first place and a round-up of the best products to stop the virus in its tracks - and which ones will do no good.

Prime Time Movie Pick
Widows, 9.00pm, Sky Cinema Thriller
Steve McQueen directs this superior heist thriller that also goes a lot deeper, touching on feminism, power and the fact that there’s a lot of rotten things in this world.
When her husband (Liam Neeson) is killed in a botched bank robbery, Veronica Rawlings (Viola Davis) finds herself in debt left by her husband Harry's criminal activities.
She joins forces with three other Chicago women in a similar predicament, and together they attempt to carry out a daring theft.
Late Late Flick Pick
Saturday Night Fever, 10.00pm, Sky Cinema Greats
This superb drama defined an era and made a superstar out of John Travolta. It didn't do the career of the Bee Gees any harm either.
Travolta leads the cast as aromatic Everyman Tony Manero, a streetwise Brooklyn teenager who struggles to cope with a dead-end job and a dysfunctional family, but finds redemption on the dance floor.
Despite an uplifting soundtrack and memorable dance scenes, Saturday Night Fever is quite a dark film. Being poor is rarely fun, and the options are few.
