Sarah Phelps, the screenwriter responsible for adapting the recent Christmas Agatha Christie dramas, has now turned her hand to Tana French's bestselling Dublin-set thrillers, with her usual high standards, if the opening episode is anything to go by. Set in 2006, at the height of the Celtic Tiger boom, Killian Scott and Sarah Greene play detectives sent to investigate the fatal stabbing of a ballerina whose body has been placed on an ancient stone plinth in woodland endangered by the building of a motorway. Meanwhile, a free-spirited young woman is found stabbed in a roofless famine cottage. Are the two murders linked?

Mark Pougatch presents the Group A qualifier from Sofia. England recorded a comfortable 4-0 victory in September's reverse fixture, with Harry Kane scoring a hat-trick, but can the Spurs striker repeat such a feat away from home? Climate Change: What Can We Do? – Panorama The Government has promised that Britain will radically reduce carbon emissions to achieve net-zero by 2050. To get there, people need to make big changes to the way they live, but how much difference will they really make? With the help of a family in Nottingham, Justin Rowlatt finds out the most important things people can do, and asks what the Government is doing to encourage everyone to alter the way they live. What Britain Buys And Sells In A Day The final episode of this Brexit-related, import-export variation on Inside The Factory, the team looks at the automotive trade, with Ed Balls at the Port of Southampton to witness the exhaustive checks that BMW cars must go through before they reach their owners, Cherry Healey visiting a Toyota factory in Derbyshire to see how workers turn millions of imported parts a day into new cars, and Ade Adepitan at the Tesla Gigafactory in Nevada to find out how their batteries are made. Motherland 10pm, BBC2 Mum's the word: Anne (Philippa Dunne), Amanda (Lucy Punch), Liz (Diane Morgan), Julia (Anna Maxwell Martin), Meg (Tanya Moodie), Kevin (Paul Ready) (Photo: BBC) The Sharon Horgan co-scripted sitcom continues to unerringly skewer middle-class mores as Liz (Diane Morgan) berates the "yummy-mummyfication of the high street" when she discovers that her favourite local kebab takeaway has been taken over by Amanda's new "store" (definitely not a "shop"), the wonderfully named Hygge Tygge, which nobody can pronounce and which sells £87 candles, but which definitely won't stock Kevin's literary endeavour – a children's book about Brexit. Meanwhile the now freelance Julia (Anna Maxwell Martin) reluctantly agrees to help with Amanda's PR, although a careless online post threatens her good work. The Lesbian Guide To Straight Sex 10pm, Channel 5 HE may be the leading star of new show Dublin Murders, but Killian Scott is "totally fine" with the fact he will probably always be Tommy with the Fizzy Orange. Viewers will instantly remember him as Nidge's once valued sidekick in Love/Hate before a horror attack by the mob boss. 6 Killian Scott stars alongside Sarah Greene in new drama Dublin Murders Credit: BBC 6 But Killian says he doesn't mind being known as Tommy from his Love/Hate days Credit: Bernard Walsh 6 Scott said the show - in which he starred alongside Charlie Murphy - was a wonderful thing to be involved in Credit: RTE And while he is now playing a good guy for once, on the right side of the law, Killian knows he won't be shaking Tommy anytime soon. Love/Hate had the impact that it had in an Irish context. "I totally understand people's reaction to that show and it was a wonderful thing to be involved in, very exciting but you can never quite fully appreciate those things at the time - I was probably just nervous most of the time or very afraid if you are getting that kind of attention. "But I totally understand if that is how I am identified by an Irish audience. I'm totally fine with that." He continued: "Like I mean, I feel like you could win Oscars, you could win Tonys on Broadway, you could play the greatest Hamlet that's ever been seen but if you were in that show in a primary role, that's how Irish audiences will relate to you and that's fine. "I've no interest or intention of trying to smash that or deconstruct that, I think it would be naive to think I could." NEW ROLE When we met in RTE for this chat, Killian was in flying form, laughing and joking as he is finally able to speak about the show he filmed for seven months in Belfast. It wrapped in March but he is only now able to chat about playing Rob Reilly, a homicide detective who is dispatched with his partner, Cassie, played by Sarah Greene, to investigate a child's murder that echoes an almost identical one 21 years previously. He is delighted to finally be able to speak about the show but admitted it is "difficult to talk about without giving things away." He revealed: "I enjoy getting to talk about it and I know it can be boring when actors are just talking about the privilege of it and being 'so fortunate and so blessed' and if you have any sense of perspective, you are aware of that fact- talent is very questionable the amount that is playing a part in what's happening. "So much of it is luck and hard work or whatever but I know to do get to do a role like this with this kind of group of people is an extraordinary privilege that I do not take for granted. "I never expect necessarily to be repeated- that's why I try and enjoy it while I am doing it!" TOUGH WATCH But that doesn't mean he likes watching himself back necessarily, after getting an advance viewing of the first two episodes of the show when he was in New York recently. "It's weird when I see the stuff that I've been in. The first time you watch it, it's sort of very uncomfortable initially, hopefully you can get over that a little bit. "But what's interesting is that you kind of remember how you felt on the day, so you don't just remember shooting the scene and Sarah was there, and the camera was there and someone was directing, you also kind of remember, oh and I hadn't slept well that day or I drank too much coffee, you remember these weird little details." Working with Sarah was a "professional highlight" for the 34-year-old, on a show that is "difficult material." He said: "It's a very adult, sophisticated psychological drama and these are not joyful people. "I mean, Rob is a very broken man who's dealing with all sorts of traumas and weird psychological issues and his myopically focused on what is a very difficult profession." And while the show will be on RTE and BBC for the next few weeks, Killian is not rushing into a new role anytime soon. "At the moment, I am very happily enjoying prolonged unemployment!
