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

Clothes to Die For (BBC 2, 9pm)

Drivers Who Kill (BBC 1, 8.30pm)

My Left Foot (RTÉ One, 11.20pm) 

If you’re staying up late you could do worse than rewatching this Irish classic starring Brenda Fricker and Daniel Day-Lewis as Christy Brown and his mother Bridget. #MyLeftFoot 


Everybody’s talking about… #MontyPythonLive

The final ever Monty Python show was broadcast on Gold last night, with Dara O’Briain at the helm.

He was forced to defend some delicate censoring of the ‘almost live’ show, explaining:

The bit that was removed was 2 extra verses of ‘Isn’t it Awfully Nice to Have a Penis?” about bottoms and lady-gardens. Not at 7.46pm.



Or switch over for…

  • Royal Marines Commando School (Channel 4, 9pm) The new recruits try to make it through three weeks of training 
  • Deirfiúracha na hEolaíochta (RTÉ One, 7.30pm) Looking at the life of Irish scientist Kathleen Lonsdale
  • University Challenge (BBC One, 8pm) How many can you get right?
  • Glasgow Girls (BBC 3) Musical drama about a fight to save a friend from deportation
  • Kevin Dundon’s Modern Irish Food (RTÉ One, 8.30pm) Chicken terrine and potato gratin. Yes please.
