TV tonight: Douglas Henshall’s final tour as DI Perez in Shetland | Television


9 p.m., BBC One

After a brief suspension, DI Jimmy Perez (Douglas Henshall) is back at work for a seventh season of this perennially popular Ann Cleeves adaptation. It’s also a good job – a local wild swimmer and graphic novelist, whose family has just moved to Shetland, has disappeared. As Perez investigates, he learns the truth about why they had to leave Glasgow, which creates even more concern. But fans will be sad to hear that Perez won’t hang around once this matter is resolved. Henshall has announced that this will be his last season. Hollie Richardson

“Everything looks very serious around here,” interior designer Whinnie Williams tells Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, looking disgusted as they approach their first project in the new series, in Tunbridge Wells. It doesn’t take long before the pair and their team start injecting their brand of “fun” (like an orange frame on a mirror). HOUR

As she begins to properly mourn Leo, Catherine exercises her ruthless streak by ordering the guards to beat Peter and then lock him in his room with his mother’s remains. Ouch.

Paris, Texas (Wim Wenders, 1984) 1h10, Film4
Wim Wenders is having a moment, with restored films back in theaters and Film4 is also doing its part. The German director’s 1984 drama is a haunting tale of lost lives and redemption, highlighting his interest in America’s faded glory. Harry Dean Stanton’s Travis emerges from the wilderness after being missing for four years and reunites with his brother Walt (Dean Stockwell), his seven-year-old son Hunter (Hunter Carson) and his wife Jane (a brilliant appearance by Nastassja Kinski). Robby Müller’s camerawork and Ry Cooder’s plaintive score contribute to a film touched by greatness. Simon Wardel
