What to watch on TV tonight: Monday

Here are the shows that’ll be on your Twitter timeline later.

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

The Summit (RTÉ One, 9.35pm)

Harrowing Irish documentary about a 2008 attempt to climb the Himalayas’ K2 peak. Eleven climbers died as a result of the attempt, among them Limerick man Ger McDonnell. This is the TV premiere of the award-winning film, which showed in cinemas last year to critical acclaim. #thesummit

The Family Project (RTÉ One, 7.30pm)

Ronan Keating’s former missus Yvonne gives advice to a single mother whose two kids are having trouble getting along. Don’t ask us why Yvonne Keating is especially qualified to give advice, other than being a mother with two kids herself. But she is. OK?

The Cost of Cheap Alcohol (Channel 4, 8pm)

No, this isn’t an investigation into how many cans of Dutch Gold you can REALLY get for a fiver. Instead, it’s an examination of the hidden costs we all pay for alcohol abuse – including crime, accidents, and social health costs linked to bargain booze. Its focus is on the UK, but there’ll be plenty of relevance to Irish viewers.

Everyone’s talking about: Doctor Who

Filming has begun on the new series of Doctor Who, starring Peter Capaldi. And the BBC tweeted this image from the set today – confirming that fan favourites the Cybermen will be returning as villains.

Or switch over for:

  • The Culture Show: Girls Will Be Girls (BBC2, 11.50pm) Documentary about iconic female punk musicians
  • The World Cup:France vs Nigeria (5pm) and Germany vs Algeria (9pm)
  • Jigs & Wigs: The Extreme World of Irish Dancing (BBC4, 8pm) Didn’t think Irish dancing was extreme? THINK AGAIN.
  • Storage Wars (ITV4, 9pm) Reliably entertaining reality nonsense.
