Mad Men star Jon Hamm and Harry Potter's Daniel Radcliffe lead the final Sky Thursdays line-up with the first episode of the witty drama A Young Dr's Notebook.

For the past 12 weeks, Freeview viewers have had the chance to experience the very best that Sky TV has to offer thanks to Sky Thursdays, which has introduced them to acclaimed shows ranging from Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire to Modern Family and An Idiot Abroad.

Tonight's line-up sees Hamm and Radcliffe collaborate on the first of a series based on Mikhail Bulgakov's collection of short stories A Country Doctor's Notebook, which sees the actors play the same character at different stages in his life.

The Sky Arts special received critical and audience acclaim as it tracked the young medic's journey from bustling Moscow to a remote country hospital, and Freeview viewers have the chance to see what all the fuss is about at 10pm.

The evening kicks off with Ashley Banjo's Secret Street Crew at 7pm, which sees the Diversity member and former Britain's Got Talent champ take hopeless dancers and teach them how to move, culminating in a special performance in front of family and friends.

Next up at 8pm is spooky drama Bedlam, starring former Pop Idol champion Will Young, which sees the residents of a modern day apartment block converted from a Victorian asylum haunted by the ghosts of the former inmates.

Originally broadcast on Sky Living, the programme received positive reviews for its atmosphere, tension and the quality of the writing from former Hollyoaks scriptwriters Neil Jones, David Allison and Chris Parker.

Sandwiched between Bedlam and A Young Dr's Notebook is Parkinson: Masterclass, which starts at 9pm and sees legendary interviewer Michael Parkinson take a famous face on a journey through their life and times, with tonight being the turn of Cuban Royal Ballet star Carlos Acosta.

People hoping to catch some of the best shows that Sky has to offer can tune in to Freeview Channel 11, Virgin Media channel 180, freesat channel 144 or Sky channel 152 from 7pm tonight.
