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. 

SVT1, Fri 21:50 Freddie Mecury: the Great Pretender

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.
