In the desperate search for Melody Pond, the TARDIS crash lands in Thirties Berlin, as the time-travelling drama returns for the second half of the series shown earlier in the year.

The Doctor comes face to face with the greatest war criminal in the Universe. And Hitler.

Old friendships are tested to their limits as the Doctor suffers the ultimate betrayal and learns a harsh lesson in the cruellest warfare of all. As precious time ebbs away, the Doctor must teach his adversaries that time travel has responsibilities. And he must succeed before an almighty price is paid.

The Doctor is played by Matt Smith, Hitler by Albert Welling, Amy by Karen Gillan and Rory by Arthur Darvill.

Casualty – Common Vector

Saturday 27 August
8.50-9.40pm BBC ONE

When a group of seemingly unrelated patients are brought into Holby with similar symptoms, the race is on to find the cause, as the drama continues.

New mum Annie, skateboarder Richie, white-collar worker Chris and protected teenager Fiona are all admitted with sickness and dilated pupils. Observant doctor Dylan soon notices a pattern but what is the common link? With the patients deteriorating, the race is on to get to the bottom of the mystery. Could the connection be a poisoned supply of heroin which has found its way on to the streets? And will the team get to all the patients in time – including breastfed baby Evie?

Meanwhile, new nurses Lloyd and Scarlet struggle with the emotional demands of their jobs and Linda finds her attitude softening towards young drug addicts Annie and Chloe.

Casualty stars William Beck as Dylan, Michael Obiora as Lloyd, Madeleine Mantock as Scarlett and Christine Tremarco as Linda.

John Bishop looks at the importance of friends

In show five, John Bishop takes on the important topic of friends. He starts by looking at those first friends we make at school, before asking: "What do the nicknames we give our friends actually mean?". Internet friends also come under his comedy microscope, as does the biggest question of all: "Can men and women actually by friends?".

Along the way John shares some hilarious stories about his badly behaved mates, as well as his all-new celebrity chums.

Throughout the show we hear thoughts from the British public and celebrities on the topic. Highlights include Reggie Yates confessing that he was a "floater" at school and Craig Revel Horwood revealing his childhood nickname.
