Mastermind (BBCI, 7.05pm). The works of that odd woman Dorothy L. Sayers, the novels of Graham Greene, the novels of Kingsley Amis and Bath architecture suffer the incisive fangs of the inquisitor this week.

Behind the Scenes with ... John Wells (BBC. 10.20pm). These things are never as good as the productions they look behind. Mr Wells, the boyish middle-ager and Private Eye type, shows us how he puts on his make-up to play Denis Thatcher in the justly successful play, Anyone for Denis?
