How with John Wilson

9:35 p.m., BBC 2

The first season of the documentarian’s smart life tutorials, told through deadpan narration over secretly filmed footage of New Yorkers, finally hits UK screens. In the premiere of tonight’s Double Bill, Wilson shares his observations on how to gossip and ends up forming an unlikely, yet touching, friendship with a college student who consumes Monster energy drinks during spring break.

Ridley

8 p.m., TVI

DI Carol Farman (Bronagh Waugh) calls the not-quite-retired Alex Ridley (Adrian Dunbar) when the body of a young woman is found in the dreary Pennine moors. It’s a moody murder drama to while away a few hours of enjoyment – and yes, Dunbar sings us along with another jazz warbler. HOUR

Capturing

9 p.m., BBC One

Is Rachel (Holliday Grainger) planning to expose the “correction” after all? And is she looking to recruit Isaac (Paapa Essiedu) as a willing accomplice? Don’t be so sure about anything just yet. The watch series’ second season continues to make a car chase of ridiculous (literally) U-turns, and it’s damn fun. HOUR

Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins

9 p.m., Channel 4

A new platoon of 14 celebrities arrives in Jordan to be yelled at by angry alpha males wearing tight T-shirts. The lineup is dominated by reality stars and influencers such as Pete Wicks and Amber Gill, and surely better-equipped athletes including Dwain Chambers and Jonathan Broom-Edwards. The first favorite: Fatima Whitbread, 61 years old. Jack Seale

RuPaul’s Drag Race Down

9 p.m., BBC 3

Australasian cruising at its finest. Tonight the queens are selling, selling, selling – and it’s not just their souls to hell for a place in the final. Achieving the ultimate publicity, contestants-turned-tour guides introduce their hometown – the royal road. Danielle DeWolfe

thinking about murder

9 p.m. Sky Crime

This true crime series is a deep dive into the harrowing case of the so-called Beatrice Six – a group who in 1989 were convicted of the 1985 rape and murder of Helen Wilson. In 2009 they were exonerated by DNA evidence, although five of them confessed. Director Nanfu Wang does a delicate job of unraveling a complex case. Phil Harrison

Choice of movies

The Incredibles, 3:50 p.m., BBC One

Pixar’s loving ode to superhero comics and James Bond movies gives its heroic couple arguably the toughest mission of their lives: childcare. After the “supers” are forced into retirement, Mr Incredible and Elastigirl – AKA Bob and Helen Parr – settle into a monotonous office life, fighting over three kids and trying not to use their powers to fight against The crime. It can’t last, of course, and Brad Bird’s animated adventure is having a lot of fun with their hesitant return to action, amidst secret lairs and island hideouts that Bond creator Ken Adam would have been proud.
