TV tonight: Olivia Colman and David Thewlis star as two killers on the run

Olivia Colman and David Thewlis are perfectly cast as seemingly ordinary, if ever so slightly creepy, Susan and Christopher Edwards – who are also two killers on the run. Based on a murky true story, this four-part dark comedy picks up in France, where Christopher calls his stepmother to confess there are two bodies buried in the garden of their old house back in the UK. As police dig up the remains, the Edwards – now penniless and haunted – board a train to St Pancras unaware of what’s waiting for them. Hollie Richardson

Another adventure through hospitality for the likable Monica Galetti and her opposite number in every respect, Giles Coren.

Issa, Molly, Kelli and Tiffany do something they haven’t done for a while – hang out together. And fans know what cracking telly that makes. Instead of heading out for dinner, they slip into their PJs, get high and have a night of deep and meaningfuls (oh, and Kelli slides into Daniel Kaluuya’s DMs). HR

The effects budget gets a proper leeching this week. Nandor (Kayvan Novak) and Nadja (Natasia Demetriou) have one job: keep the fearsomely hungry Sire in his cell, lest bloody chaos reign. They fail, leading to a messy denouement in a hardware store. Jack Seale
