HRParis Police 19059pm, BBC FourThe immersive period police procedural continues with Inspector Jouin (Jérémie Laheurte) in an even worse mood than usual – he’s in danger of being framed as a paedophile.

Phil HarrisonDublin Narcos9pm, Sky DocumentariesAs this fascinating series concludes, it’s the 90s and the Celtic Tiger is roaring. In terms of drugs that can only mean one thing: cocaine. However, huge profits mean huge risks for everyone involved, including journalists. Enter the astonishingly courageous Veronica Guerin, a reporter who got too close to the truth. PHThe Jonathan Ross Show9.55pm, ITV1Ross shoots the breeze with Liam Neeson, ahead of his new thriller Marlowe; Mel Giedroyc, who has a new podcast out; comedian Munya Chawawa, after his appearance in new romcom Rye Lane; and jazz crooner Lady Blackbird, who performs in the studio. HRFilm choiceBoston Strangler, out now, Disney+Carrie Coon and Keira Knightley in Boston Strangler. Photograph: Claire FolgerThe true story of the killer, or killers, who murdered 13 women in Boston, Massachusetts, in the early 1960s is filtered through the work of two female news reporters in Matt Ruskin’s gripping drama. Keira Knightley brings a no-nonsense steeliness to her portrayal of journalist Loretta McLaughlin, the first person to see a link between the killings. Joining forces with a more experienced colleague Jean Cole (Carrie Coon), she follows leads, uncovers further deaths and tails suspects, while the city police flounder. McLaughlin’s increasingly obsessive quest, and its lack of closure, is reminiscent of David Fincher’s Zodiac, as is the personal toll it exacts on her. Simon WardellCall Jane, 2.55pm, 9.55pm, Sky Cinema PremiereIn these post-Roe v Wade times, here’s a sharp reminder of what it was like in the 60s before the abortion ruling came into effect. Elizabeth Banks plays Joy, a lawyer’s wife and mother of a 15-year-old girl. When her second pregnancy places her in a life-threatening situation and the hospital refuses a termination, she calls a helpline that provides illegal abortions. Late to the cause of women’s liberation, Joy is drawn into their necessary but morally fraught work in a film from Phyllis Nagy that retains optimistic top notes despite the injustice.
