TV tonight: it’s the last ever episode of Inside No 9

Inside No 9

10pm, BBC Two
How will Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith end their deliciously dark cult-hit anthology series? They are keeping details about the final episode tightly under wraps (making it all the more intriguing), but – after a series that has boasted guest stars such as Natalie Dormer, Vinette Robinson and Mark Bonnar – it has been confirmed that they are the only two people who appear in it. A fitting ending. Hollie Richardson

The Repair Shop

8pm, BBC One
The last episode – before taking a break for the football – brings down the curtain with a real showstopper: a glam yellow gown dating to 1969 that once belonged to drag royalty Danny La Rue. Will it be “chiffon impossible” for the textile specialist Rebecca Bissonnet? Elsewhere, a rusted BMX requires some serious TLC. Graeme Virtue

The Traitors US

8pm, BBC Three
Alan Cumming opens the second season of the US show with an all‑celebrity cast, many of whom are reality stalwarts. The UK’s contribution to the scheming cast of the castle is Love Island’s Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and the former House of Commons speaker John Bercow. But will they hold their own against various Real Housewives when the competition heats up? Hannah Verdier

The Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan

9pm, BBC Two
Ranganathan heads to Madagascar, the world’s fourth-biggest island – but the only knowledge he has of it comes from the kids’ animated films. To discover more, he befriends local taxi drivers, tries soup made from the penis of a variety of cattle called zebu (it strengthens you, apparently), visits the “mad queen” palace and discovers the beautiful nature under threat.

Painting Birds With Jim and Nancy Moir

9pm, Sky Arts
For the finale of their wholesome hobbyist series, Jim and Nancy head to Leinster in Ireland in search of little terns – and are lucky enough to see fluffy chicks on the beach. Later, the musician Imelda May and the birdwatcher David Lindo drop by for a chat. HR

Alaska Daily

9pm, Alibi
Eileen (Hilary Swank) and fellow reporter Rosalind (Grace Dove) uncover a lead in the case of the missing Indigenous woman Gloria Nanmac. “This story’s deeply personal,” says Ros. “It’s about my community. My life.” Elsewhere, Claire investigates why the owner of the beloved restaurant Rita’s Diner is selling up. Ali Catterall

Patricia Roc and Megs Jenkins in Millions Like UsView image in fullscreen

Millions Like Us (Sidney Gilliat and Frank Launder, 1943), 1.35am Thursday, Talking Pictures TV
This skilful 1943 propaganda drama is less Keep Calm and Carry On, more Grumble and Get On With It. When war comes, ordinary British folk such as the Crowsons buckle down – Dad joins the Home Guard, daughter Phyllis signs up for the Auxiliary Territorial Service and young Celia (Patricia Roc) goes off to work in an aircraft factory. It’s an affecting bundle of love, class-mingling and inevitable sacrifice – and a fascinating snapshot of how wartime Britain liked to see itself. Simon Wardell
