Viewers of new series The Tunnel may notice something uncannily similar. The series, based on the popular plotline of The Bridge, sees a body lying on the tracks of the Eurostar between France and England and the dual attempts to solve the case.

Award-winning British documentary Freddie Mercury: the Great Pretender takes a closer look at Queen’s frontman and his attempts to go solo as well as showing unseen footage of concerts and interviews.

Elsewhere, watch the fifth series of River Monsters (K6, Sat 20:00) to see what lurks beneath the surface of the water, while documentary Guns in America (DR3, Sat 19:15) investigates the relationship between guns and crime in the US.
