Pick of the Day
DNA, 9.00pm, BBC Four
Fans of subtitled telly will love this chilly Danish drama, as it comes in In Danish (natch), English, Polish and French. Ideal armchair activity on these dark nights.

Five years after the event, a new lead emerges when a serious flaw is uncovered in the police's DNA database.
Strictly Come Dancing, 7.25pm, BBC One
Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman present as the 12 celebrity and professional dancer pairings take to the dancefloor for their debut performances.
Each of the performances will be critiqued and scored by Strictly judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse, but the competitors will escape the UK-wide public vote until the following weekend.
Here, the stars show off their signature moves:
Finding Joy, 9.20pm, RTÉ One
