It's the end of the line for the superb Dead Still, Niall Horan has a showdown with Dustin on The Den, there's Sam semi-final and FAI Cup Final action, while Jamie Oliver reveals how to Keep Cooking at Christmas . . .

Pick of the Day

Dead Still, 9.30pm, RTÉ One

It’s the final episode of this delightfully cheeky and quite unique period dramedy about a photographer in late 19th Century Dublin who specialises in memorial portraiture - he creates portrait photography of the recently deceased.

Now there's a deadly job.

If, by some horrible circumstance, you've missed this show so far, go root it out on the RTÉ Player. It's the most perfectly-assembled TV show since Brooklyn Nine-Nine, though not quite so cosy.

As the gang gathers for the last time, a malevolent figure drives Blennerhasset, Nancy and Molloy apart, intent on ensnaring the senior photographer in a trap.

Fingers crossed we’ll see Michael Smiley, Eileen O’Higgins and Kerr Logan back together again. They work so well together it would be an act of criminal intent to end this series after just six episodes.

Don't Miss

The Den, 6.30pm, RTÉ One

Looks like there could be trouble here.

Superstar Niall Horan shot a video earlier this week (see below) in which he told mouthy turkey Dustin he was coming to The Den this Sunday to 'have words'.

Last Friday on Ray D'Arcy's RTÉ One radio show, Dustin bit back. 

"Who invited him in without my permission after what that pup did to me, that pup from Mullingar,' he said. "Niall Snorin', more like. I'm an honest decent turkey. I'm going to head to head with him. He can come in on Sunday and apologise to me!"

The war of words broke out when Dustin had a characteristic pop at the global star during RTÉ Does Comic Relief back in the spring.

Niall's fiercely devoted international fans on social media, who weren't familiar with Dustin's iconoclastic approach, took exception to what they were seeing in their feed and it all got a bit hairy.

Today’s showdown could be a turkey shoot. But for whom?

As a big fan of classic Adidas, I'm pretty biased when it comes to casual footwear - but this looks fascinating.

The Night Watchmen’s Nativity, 6.00pm, Sky Arts & NOW TV

Powered by urgent storytelling, a bold aesthetic and breathtaking gospel music, the premise of this film is to give a voice back to the outsiders at the heart of the Christmas narrative.

The choral drama is performed by Soul Santuary Gospel Choir, whose diverse musicianship includes singers who have themselves faced exclusion and homelessness.

Here, the choir reframes the nativity to champion the perspective of the marginalised and underrepresented, promoting a message of optimism and inclusivity for a modern audience.

Here's an semi-animated family comedy based on Beatrix Potter's stories, starring Domhnall Gleeson, with the voice of James Corden.

As usual these days, it looks ridiculously realistic.

A mischievous rabbit takes on a farmer in a battle of wits. And then Rose Byrne turns up as Bea, a potential love interest for the otherwise forlorn Thomas McGregor.

It’s fun, but devotees of the books won’t have been big fans as it veers quite a bit away from its source material.
