Gotham, 9pm, Channel 5

This Batman prequel is a dark and brooding affair. Highly anticipated among fans, Netflix snatched exclusive worldwide streaming rights before it had even aired on Fox in the US.

And it hasn't disappointed, with Bat-fans decorating it with rave reviews.

Episode eight has overtones of Chuck Palahniuk, as Commissioner Gordon and Bullock investigate a deadly fight club where the prize is a job with a financier.

Sounds like losing might be preferable.

Bruce also learns a lesson when he tries to make friends at school, prompting Alfred to teach him how to stand up for himself.

Could this be the start of his Bat-leanings? We suspect it could.

Wild Weather with Richard Hammond, 9pm, BBC One


Hammond's new series sees him explore some of the most extreme weather conditions in the world.

Though without his Top Gear hat on, he's far less likely to offend an entire nation and be chased out, pelted with stones.

The first episode focuses on wind, fittingly enough for Christmas, though there's not a Brussells sprout in sight.

Hammond has previous with science-y shows like 'Blast Lab' and 'Science Abuse', so this Open University three-parter should be educational as well as entertaining.
