The Doctor's (Matt Smith) plans are thwarted

The TARDIS is marooned onboard a 17th-century pirate ship whose crew is being attacked by a mysterious and beautiful sea creature, as the time-travelling drama continues.

Becalmed and beset by cabin fever, the pirates have numerous superstitious explanations for the Siren's appearance. The Doctor has other ideas but, as his theories are disproved and every plan of escape is thwarted, he must work to win the trust of the implacable Captain Avery and uncover the truth behind the pirates' supernatural fears – and he must work quickly, for some of his friends have already fallen under the Siren's spell...

The Doctor is played by Matt Smith, Captain Avery by Hugh Bonneville, Amy by Karen Gillan and Rory by Arthur Darvill.

So You Think You Can Dance Ep 7/12

Live event/outside broadcast
Saturday 7 May
7.00-8.05pm BBC ONE

So You Think You Can Dance sets the dancefloor alight as Cat Deeley and judges Nigel Lythgoe, Arlene Phillips, Louise Redknapp and Sisco Gomez continue the search to find Britain's favourite dancer.

The dancers take to the floor in the same couples as last week to impress the viewers at home and win their valuable votes. The pressure is on. Who will be forced to dance for their place in the competition?

Tonight's results show features a group performance before one boy and one girl take their final bow and dance their way out of the contest, forfeiting the chance to realise their dreams in Hollywood and take home the £50,000 prize.

9.25-10.15pm BBC ONE

The team grieve for Polly but put on a collective brave face, as the medical drama continues. Miriam tries to encourage them to talk to her about it but it's too early; everyone just carries on.

Later, Jordan finds eight-year-old Sam hiding in the Clinical Decision Unit (CDU). Sam admits that he is there to see Miriam who is flabbergasted to learn that he is her step-grandson and that he damaged his hand on purpose so he could come to see her. His dad – her stepson – has Parkinson's disease. Faced with the possibility of a family reconciliation, Miriam knows she must choose between her family and her job.

Meanwhile, a near-death experience makes teenage hustler Liz realise how much having a friend means and Flavio faces up to the consequences of giving his unknowing wife an abortion pill.

Cheryl Campbell stars as Miriam, with Michael French as Jordan, Ioan Lloyd as Sam, Chanel Cresswell as Liz and Luis Soto as Flavio.

Formula 1 – Turkish Grand Prix Qualifying

Jake Humphrey presents live coverage of qualifying for the Turkish Grand Prix, which is the first European race of the 2011 Formula 1 season.

Red Bull's Mark Webber earned pole last year in Istanbul with team-mate Sebastian Vettel third. But the race itself proved less favourable for the Austrian team, with the two cars colliding after two-thirds of the race.

Commentary is provided by Martin Brundle and David Coulthard.
