What to watch on TV tonight: Sunday

This is the telly everyone will be talking about tomorrow.

Women’s Rugby World Cup (RTÉ 2, 5.15pm)

Ireland v Japan (Kick-off 5.15pm). Daire O’Brien presents all the action from the Pool C match, held at UCD Bowl in Dublin. We brilliantly scrapped through to beat Australia in the first game, so Ireland will be looking to build on that success this evening. COYGIG.

Valkyrien (Channel 4, 9pm)

A new series – which has plenty of critics purring. Valkyrien is a Norwegian drama about a surgeon who refuses to accept that his terminally ill wife cannot be saved, and takes matters into his own hands. With the aid of an unhinged former patient, he turns a disused bunker underneath an underground station into his own illegal clinic where he can treat his comatose wife himself. However, his search for an elusive cure requires money, so he resorts to treating people who cannot seek medical help through official channels, from refugees to criminal gangs. Could be essential Sunday evening viewing.

The Sunday Game (RTÉ 2, 9.30pm)

Today’s big game is the All-Ireland hurling semi-final between Waterford and Cork – and if you can’t catch it live in the afternoon, The Sunday Game will have all the highlights and agenda-setting chat.


Everyone is talking about… “Great British Bake Off’s Paul Hollywood would like people to stop calling him a “traitor,” please”

What a headline.

He’s been getting grief since it was announced that GBBO was moving to Channel 4 from its original home on BBC One:

It has been hard because I was called a traitor over my decision to leave the BBC to go to Channel 4. The other three left for whatever reason but I didn’t want to lose my job. The show found me and I didn’t want to turn my back on them.

Leave Paul alone, lads.


Or flick over for…

  • World Athletics Championships 2017 (BBC 1 at 8pm) It’s the final evening of the World Championships, so if athletics is your thing, soak it all in.
  • Double Jeopardy (TV3, 9pm) Ashley Judd in one of the most ’90s movies ever made.
  • Match of the Day 2 (BBC One, 10.30pm) Wrapping up all the weekend’s action.
