Single Father Ep 3/4

High Definition programme
Sunday 24 October
9.00-10.00pm BBC ONE and BBC HD
Dave (David Tennant) and Sarah (Suranne Jones) share a tender moment
Dave (David Tennant) and Sarah (Suranne Jones) share a tender moment

After their night of passion, Dave and Sarah are on tenterhooks, worried about what Evie saw, as Mick Ford's touching yet humorous drama about finding love after heartbreak continues. To their dismay, Evie's not giving anything away.

Desperate to see Sarah again, Dave arranges for the kids to go to a football match. When he calls to invite her, Matt answers and a flustered Dave ends up inviting them both along. It proves excruciating as Evie, the ticking time bomb, runs happily between Dave, Sarah and Matt.

Meanwhile, Anna doesn't help matters by revealing to Lucy that Dave has found her father. Incredibly excited by the news, Lucy is furious when a protective Dave won't give her Stuart's number.

Later, Dave meets up with Stuart and his glamorous wife and their children. In contrast to Dave's chaotic family life, Stuart lives in a huge, well-ordered house in Edinburgh.

As the two men talk, Stuart asks if the police offered Dave compensation for Rita's death. When Dave explains Robin is dealing with this, Stuart, a lawyer himself, offers to take on the case – believing he can better the claim.

Dave talks it through with Robin who thinks it's a good idea and, now in serious financial trouble, Dave reluctantly accepts Stuart's offer. But Anna is furious at Robin for giving up the compensation case and throws him out.

Recent revelations about Rita have made Dave paranoid and he obsesses over her diaries, cross-referencing and checking them alongside Paul, Ewan and Evie's birthdays – convinced Rita has lied about their paternity.

Dave takes Lucy to Edinburgh to spend time with Stuart. While there, Sarah surprises him with a visit to the city and the two spend the afternoon at a hotel together. Dave opens up about his paternity fears but a vulnerable Sarah reacts badly to his honesty, questioning whether she's being used as revenge against Rita's memory. Dave pursues Sarah, realising he's fallen in love with her and she tells him the only way they can move forward together is for him to get a paternity test.

Back home, a desperate Matt offers Sarah a new life away from Glasgow but is surprised when she ends their relationship.

Dave is played by David Tennant, Sarah by Suranne Jones, Evie by Millie Innes, Matt by Warren Brown, Anna by Neve McIntosh, Lucy by Natasha Watson, Stuart by Rupert Graves, Robin by Mark Heap, Paul by Chris Hegarty and Ewan by Robert Dickson.

Single Father is simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel, available through Freesat 108, Freeview 50, Sky 143 and Virgin 108.

Attenborough's Journey

Sunday 24 October
8.00-9.00pm BBC TWO (Schedule addition 13 October)

Attenborough's Journey follows David Attenborough as he travels the globe to film his new series, David Attenborough's First Life, in which he explores the very origins of life on Earth.

In the series – a year in the making – David, aged 84, journeys to the parts of the world which have had special meaning to him during his 50 years of broadcasting. Beginning near his boyhood Leicestershire home, where he first collected fossils, he then travels to Morocco's arid deserts, the glaciers of Canada and the crystal-clear waters of Australia's Great Barrier Reef.

Sharing the origins of his love of nature, David reveals: "When I was a boy growing up in the Midlands, the rocks and limestone you found were full of the most magical things. You hit a stone and it suddenly fell open, and there was this amazing coiled shell, beautiful and extraordinary, and nobody had seen that for 150 million years, except you. So I thought it was very romantic and exciting. And it appealed to the small boy's instinct of collecting things – to be honest I don't think I've really lost that."

As a prelude to David Attenborough's First Life, Attenborough's Journey provides a unique insight into the mind and character of one of the world's most iconic broadcasters as he shares his passions for the natural world. Combining his global journey for First Life and archive material looking back at his illustrious career, both as a programme maker and a Controller of the BBC, the film reveals what makes him tick.

Talking about making David Attenborough's First Life, he says: "There is a great thrill of being alongside these people who know what they're doing, and what they're looking for and how to look for it."

Match Of The Day 2

Sunday 24 October
10.00-11.10pm BBC TWO

Colin Murray presents highlights of the day's Premier League matches, including an intriguing match at Eastlands where Manchester City welcome title rivals Arsenal. City won this fixture 4-2 last season, but the match made the headlines for all the wrong reasons when City striker Emmanuel Adebayor – signed from Arsenal – incensed some of the Gunners fans by running the length of the pitch to celebrate his goal in front of them.

Elsewhere today, Manchester United travel to Stoke and Liverpool hope to put their poor start to the season behind them when they play Blackburn at Anfield.
