TV tonight: Line of Duty’s Adrian Dunbar is a conflicted cop again | Television & radio


8pm, ITV

Adrian Dunbar is at his most Adrian Dunbar as reclusive ex-detective Alex Ridley, who spends his days pensively listening to jazz in his coastal hideaway while grieving his wife and daughter. But it is Bronagh Waugh (The Fall’s Sally Spector) who finally gets the role she deserves: the newly promoted DI Carol Farman with a murder on her hands, which might be connected to a 13-year-long missing person case. Can she bring Ridley out of retirement to help solve it? Hollie Richardson

The Capture

9pm, BBC One

DCI Rachel Carey (Holliday Grainger) and her power pout strut into the second season of this surveillance thriller, hungry to climb the ladder in Counter Terrorism Command. But now that viewers know what the unit’s use of “correction” is (doctoring CCTV footage to ensure convictions in terrorism cases ), can the series stay as gripping across this six-episode run? Enter Paapa Essiedu as smarmy security minister Isaac Turner, whose conflict with a Chinese AI technology company is about to land him in trouble – it involves deep fake footage and perhaps even a murder case. Tonight’s “OMG!” cliffhanger will have you tuning in to the second episode tomorrow. HR

Photographer LB (James Stewart) is stuck in his Manhattan flat with a broken leg, and only visits from girlfriend Lisa (a luminous Grace Kelly) and nurse Stella (Thelma Ritter ) relieve the boredom. To pass the time, he starts spying on his neighbours across the courtyard, and begins to suspect that one apartment owner has killed his wife. Alfred Hitchcock’s most voyeuristic film (and there are many) cleverly makes us complicit in LB’s secretive watching – even as it becomes more perilous – but always with the getout clause of the thriller plot to assuage our guilt.
