Call the Midwife

8pm, BBC One

The approaching Bonfire night in the Poplar neighborhood will feature both fireworks and emotional outbursts as it is also the season finale. Miss Higgins, who is proper and uptight, is confronted with secrets from her past. Trixie, who has been under a lot of pressure lately, is on the verge of losing control. On a more positive note, the competition for mother of the year is in progress with the grand prize being a top-of-the-line washing machine. Graeme Virtue.

Secret World of Sound With David Attenborough

8pm, Sky Nature

This immaculately recorded series exploring the unique sounds of nature is a sensory delight. The odd selection of noises in this episode revolve around attracting mates and repelling rivals. These include the clattering antlers of rutting stags, the peculiar droning noise emitted by midshipman fish in romantic moments and, most bizarrely of all, the sharp-tailed grouse which, via foot-stamping and feather-rustling, constructs polyrhythmic symphonies.

Jocelyn is given a thrilling opportunity, but how will it impact the career of her older brother Marlon (Tahj Miles) in the island’s police force?

Ellen E Jones

The Dry

10.15pm, ITV1

True Things, 10.45pm, BBC Two

Ruth Wilson in True Things on BBC Two.View image in fullscreen

Despite the fun factor of erotic thrillers, it’s unfortunate that until recently, none of them were set in Ramsgate. However, this has changed with True Things, a film where Ruth Wilson, a bored employee at a benefits office, becomes entranced by Tom Burke’s enigmatic character. As her fascination turns to obsession, Wilson’s mental state deteriorates with each rendezvous. While it may seem odd to see Wilson’s shining movie star aura attempt to portray an ordinary person (even a sandwich from the supermarket can’t diminish her allure), the movie delves into the carnal inclinations of women. Written by Stuart Heritage.
