1) White Gold, Wednesday, BBC2, 11.45pm

We are so excited for this new comedy series- mainly because it stars two of our favourite Inbetweeners stars- James Buckley and Joe Thomas aka Jay and Simon. Ed Westwick aka Chuck Bass from Gossip Girls is also in this one. Plus it's written by Damon Beesley, creator of The Inbetweeners. Set in 1980's Essex the lads play double glazing salesmen who'll do anything to get the sale!

2) Twin Peaks, Tuesday, Sky Atlantic at 9pm

 This show returns this week after 25 years! It actually only ran for two seasons back in the 90's, but has since developed a bit of a cult following. The story centered around FBI agent Dale Cooper who is sent to Twin Peaks in Washington to investigate the death of Homecoming Queen Laura Palmer. All the original cast are back including Kyle McLachlan and there will be some new faces as well, including Naomi Watts. Here she is chatting to Seth Meyers about the new series:

3) Paula, Wednesday, RTÉ 1 at 9.30pm

New Irish thriller series Paula starring Denise Gough. starts this Wednesday. This is from Irish playwright Conor McPherson and tells the story of a young science teacher who hires a handyman to get rid of rats in her basement. One thing leads to another with the handyman and Paula ends up finding herself in a really dangerous situation after a one night stand. Looks creepy....
