Comic book hijinks, and a double helping of British comedy.

Stan Lee's Lucky Man 9pm, Sky 1

Lee's first series for Sky really starts to gather pace with this, its seventh episode of its 10-episode run. London detective Harry (played by James Nesbitt) comes closer than ever to catching the mysterious Golding, a man whose name we've heard plenty of times, but are still in the dark as to who he actually is. A man dies while feeling for his life, leading Harry and his DS Suri into a case involving blackmail, theft, false identities and wealthy foreign students. And of course, Golding. On top of this, Harry has to contend with possibly being thrown off the force. All in a day's work.

Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle 10pm, BBC Two

Lee's self-sabotaging comedy show returns, with plenty of self-referential material. In this episode, he tackles the issue of Islamophobia, in his uniquely thinky-yet-silly way. As ever, Chris Morris is on hand to interview him throughout, though really it's more of an interrogation. Lee is regularly praised as the most gifted comedian of his generation. But a warning for the uninitiated – he doesn't really do jokes.

Alan Partridge's Mid-Morning Matters 11:10pm, Sky Atlantic

The world's worst broadcaster is still at it, over on North Norfolk Digital. Episode four sees Alan in a romantic clinch with his new squeeze Angela, though he admits he still has a major crush on TV reporter Julia Bradbury. Reece Shearsmith also guest stars as professional conversationalist Jasper Jones (he's promoting a book called Free Speech) while Sidekick Simon (Tim Key) has a hangover. It's great to have Partridge back on the airwaves.
