Tonight's top TV includes The Pembrokeshire Murders (from the makers of Line of Duty), Eoin McGee advising small business owner Samantha Rawson, The Graduate’s Mike Nichols as the focus of The Directors, and Sinead Quinlan’s new comedy Seriously Sinead?

Pick of the Day

The Pembrokeshire Murders, 9.00pm, Virgin Media One

Given that it’s from the makers of Line of Duty, there’s a fair chance that this three-part miniseries is well worth a look.

It’s based on the real-life investigation into the killing of Peter and Gwenda Dixon, the couple robbed and shot dead while walking on a coastal path in Pembrokeshire in 1989.

The drama drama centres on John Cooper, a serial killer who evaded justice for more than 20 years, and stars Luke Evans, Keith Allen and Alexandria Riley.

Evans plays Steve Wilkins of the Dyfed Powys police force, who has just been promoted to detective inspector, and reopens the case of two unsolved murders, while Keith Allen - good casting here - plays Cooper.

The Directors, 8.00pm, Sky Arts & NOW TV

Season six of this series opens with a look at the career of Mike Nichols.

Starting his career as part of an improvisational comedy group, Nichols would transfer his skills on stage to behind the camera, as he went on to direct some of the most groundbreaking films of the time.

Hand-picked by Warner Brothers based on his talent directing Broadway plays, Nichols would direct Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf ? in 1966, winning five Academy Awards.

As an encore, he took an unknown Dustin Hoffman to superstardom in 1967’s The Graduate, which was the highest-grossing film of the year and won Nichols the Academy Award for best director.

After 2007’s Charlie Wilson’s War, he would leave cinema to return to the stage, where he would continue to direct into the 2010s, before his death in 2014.
