Here's what to watch on TV tonight: Sunday

Here’s the telly that everyone will be talking about tomorrow. rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow.

Redwater (RTÉ One, 9.30pm)

We’re already into the fifth episode of this EastEnders spin-off – and things are picking up. Tonight, Bernie still suspects that Lance’s death was not a heart attack – but who would want to kill him? LOADS of people, it’s Redwater! Meanwhile, the christening brings up painful memories for Eileen, although the atmosphere is soured by a heated exchange between Dermott and Peter.

Poldark (BBC One, 9pm)

It’s back for another series! No word whether Aidan Turner will be running through fields with his top off yet (a subject the Irish man is sick of talking about). In terms of what to expect tonight: the year is 1794, and Ross Poldark throws himself into the business of repairing Nampara, and rebuilding his relationship with Demelza. However, Elizabeth’s pregnancy continues to cast a shadow over the pair’s marriage. Poldark, we’ve missed you.

H’on. Ireland. Coverage of the Group D encounter at the Aviva Stadium, as Martin O’Neill’s men look to continue their strong start to the campaign.
