DR2, Mon-Wed 23:00 Myra Hindley: The Untold Story

With 8.6 on IMDB, the 2013 docudrama Myra Hindley: The Untold Story is hard to watch but worth it as a reminder of the dark side of humanity, as is the equally grisly doc 7/7: One Day in London (DR2, Tue 21:00), nine years on from the attacks. Poaching Wars with Tom Hardy (DR2, Sat 19:15) is hardly a walk in the park either, so maybe we’ve all earned a bit of comic relief in the form of oddball British sitcom Uncle (SVT2, Tue 21:45) and the fourth series of An Idiot Abroad (SVT1, Tue 22:30).
 


Meryl magical as Maggie



Films-wise, Meryl Streep is unbelievable as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady; Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman underwhelming in Hemingway & Gellhorn (SVT1, Mon 21:30); and Jim Broadbent and Colin Firth under-rated in When did you last see your father? (SVT1, Sun 21:50). 
 


Best of British



Sports-wise, the World Cup continues with the quarter-finals (various channels, Fri & Sat, 18:00 & 22:00) and semis (Tue & Wed, 22:00), but we’re not sure they care anymore back in England where they’ve got the start of the Tour de France (TV2 and Eurosport, all week from Fri) in Yorkshire, the women’s (TV3 Sport 1, Sat 14:30) and men’s (Sun 14:30) finals of Wimbledon and the British Grand Prix to look forward to.
