jamestown cast

It's Friday night, the time to shake off the demands of the week and kick back with some world-class telly.

Tonight is the penultimate episode of the first series of Sky's historical drama 'Jamestown' (don't worry, it's already commissioned another run).

Frankie Boyle takes on the modern world in his own inimitable style, and Graham Norton chats to the cream of Hollywood about their latest films. Enjoy.

The penultimate episode in the series sees Max Beesley's character Harry Sharrow return from the mountains and succeed in thoroughly annoying everyone around him by flaunting his new-found riches.

Meanwhile Alice, fearful of what he might do to her, takes drastic measures, Jocelyn starts asserting her newly-acquired power over Temperance, and James Read strikes a deal with Henry.

Sky has already commissioned a second series, so it obviously believes the historical drama has legs.

Frankie Boyle's New World Order

What fractious times we live in. And who better to lead us through the current political and cultural landscape than Frankie Boyle, an embolism in the form of a comedian.

He discusses current goings-on alongside regular guests Sara Pascoe and Katherine Ryan. Expect his spleen to be throughly vented.

The Graham Norton Show

10:35pm, BBC One

It's summer blockbuster season, which means lots of big stars have films to plug. Hence Graham's sofa is chock-full of guests.

Tom Holland will drop in to talk about his role as Spider-Man in the forthcoming reboot, while Andy Serkis and Woody Harrelson chat about 'War for the Planet of the Apes'.

Mark Wahlberg will also pop up to promote 'Transformers: The Last Knight', and Sienna Miller will discuss her role in 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' at the Young Vic. Which should be a welcome respite from all the chat about Hollywood blockbusters.
