DRAMA Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) 8.50pm BBC1
Those who are struggling to think up new ideas for family entertainment need only to watch Charlie Higson's remake of the fantasy/comedy/drama/ adventure/detective - in fact, just about every genre you can think of - series. The production values are sky-high, the effects are extraordinarily clever and the comedy is uniquely Vic and Bob's - but most of all, there is something for everyone. In tonight's series-ender, there are the knowing jokes for the adults (ie the Sam Spade/Mickey Spillane beginning and the untrumpeted casting of seventies' sitcom straight man Hugh Lloyd as Seth), as well as a load of silliness guaranteed to delight all ages. A second series has already been commissioned. FL
