What to watch on TV tonight: New Year's Day

All of the TV you’ll be talking about tomorrow.

DailyEdge.ie rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow. 

Luther (BBC One, 9.00pm)

New series. When a series of monstrous and seemingly indiscriminate killings become ever more audacious and public, DCI John Luther and new recruit DS Catherine Halliday are confounded by a complex tangle of leads and misdirection that seems designed to protect an untouchable corruption. But, even as the case brings him closer than ever to the true face of evil, a reluctant Luther is forced to confront the unburied demons of his own recent past. Idris Elba stars, with Wunmi Mosaku and Patrick Malahide. Continues tomorrow.

The Great New Year’s Bake Off (Channel 4, 7.40pm)

Noel Fielding, Sandi Toksvig, Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood are reunited in the tent. Joining them are Kate Henry from the 2014 series, Dr Tamal Ray from 2015, 2016 winner Candice Brown, and finalist Steven Carter-Bailey from 2017. All hope to impress the judges with their skills and take home the title of Festive Star Baker. Music is provided by the London Gay Men’s Chorus.

The Inbetweeners: Fwends Reunited (Channel 4, 9.00pm)

Cast members Simon Bird (Will), Joe Thomas (Simon), James Buckley (Jay) and Blake Harrison (Neil) reunite for a celebration of the sitcom, which made its debut on E4 in May 2008 and went on to become one of the most popular and successful British comedies of recent years. The programme promises behind-the-scenes footage from filming, the story behind the show, surprise guests, celebrity fans and plenty of embarrassing stories. The show will also be honouring the funniest moments across the three TV series and two films in the coveted Inbetweeners Awards.
