Heroes, 10.35pm, BBC Two
This fantasy drama series lost its way far too quickly, but this first season was absolutely superb.
Created by Tim Kring, it's about people with extraordinary abilities, including a tormented artist (Santiago Cabrera) who paints images of the future, a high-school cheerleader (Hayden Panettiere as Claire) and a young dreamer (Milo Ventimiglia as Peter) who believes he can fly.
In the first episode, an Indian professor travels to New York to solve the mystery of his father's death. Followed by episode two, where policeman Matt Parkman discovers he is the only person at the scene of a crime who can hear the muffled cries of a girl.
Meanwhile, Claire receives unwanted attention and Peter comes close to learning the truth about his brother Nathan.
