A police and medical thriller with an unusual hero at the helm, an extraordinary new veterinary programme, a weekend Citizen Khan marathon and a third season of Helicopter ER. If you’re not intrigued, then maybe you should be, all not to be missed this fortnight on UKTV.
Ioan Gruffudd (Liar) stars in this brand-new and exclusive 10-part Australian police and medical procedural. Dr Daniel Harrow (Gruffudd) is no ordinary forensic pathologist - he's brilliant, unorthodox... and a failure as a husband and a father. His total disregard for authority and unfailing empathy for the dead help him solve even the most bizarre of cases. He's driven to give victims a voice and will bend every rule to get to the truth of what happened to them. Putting his job and his family life constantly on the line, Harrow's life is thrown into further turmoil when a dark secret from his past resurfaces and threatens to alter his life dramatically.
Inside the Vets
From Monday 23rd July, Monday-Friday, 8pm
This brand new UKTV Original series follows the team at Montgomery Vets. They treat the cute and the cuddly, but also the very unusual and exotic – from iguanas to hedgehogs, snakes to seagulls and everything in between. For the first time, the surgery has been rigged with cameras and the staff wear body mounted cameras, to give a unique view into this extraordinary world as they save lives, make difficult decisions and treat the animals that others won’t.
Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd July, 9pm
The irrepressible Mr Khan and his family return with their comic slice of British Asian family life. The fifth series - stripped across two weekend nights - sees the Khan family in a state of flux. Amjad is finally a policeman as he and Shazia are about to become parents again; Alia is thinking of leaving home, and Mrs Khan is facing up to the prospect of an empty nest. Meanwhile, Mr Khan himself is blissfully unaware of any problems as he is far too busy being an entrepreneur, community leader and surely soon the next president of the Sparkhill Pakistani Business Association.
