Week of Monday, August 21 to Sunday, August 27
Whether you plan to have a lazy evening in front of the telly or want to catch up after a cheeky night out, Digital Spy has your TV viewing schedule covered every week.
Here are all the shows that you absolutely have to watch over the next seven days:
1. Game of Thrones - Monday at 2am and 9pm on Sky Atlantic
It's the penultimate episode of season 7 (already), and it promises to be this season's big 'battle' episode, as the Magnificent Seven head north to fight a load of White Walkers. It's finally happening. And they're bound to not all come back alive. Prepare for carnage and a total wrecking of your emotions.
2. Strike - Sunday at 9.05pm on BBC One
This has the potential to become the next huge drama that we're obsessing over for the next couple of years, and it's based on the series of crime thrillers by JK Rowling under her Robert Galbraith pseudonym. Tom Burke and Holliday Grainger star in the series, in which a supermodel falls to her death. Her brother believes she has been murdered, and so he calls up a homeless private investigator to take on the case. Episode two follows on Monday.
3. Victoria - Sunday at 9.05pm on ITV
If you prefer your Sunday dramas a bit more period and constumey, then Jenna Coleman is back for a second run as a young Queen Victoria. And this time, she doesn't have Poldark to go up against. Series two begins after the birth of her first child, and Game of Thrones favourite Diana Rigg is along for the ride as the queen's new ally, the Duchess of Buccleuch.
4. Celebrity Big Brother Final - Friday at 9pm on Channel 5
It's been yet another explosive and argument-filled series of CBB thanks to the antics of Sarah Harding, Jemma Lucy, Paul Danan and company. It remains to be seen just who will survive not killing each other enough to make it to the final, but whoever's there, it's bound to be another hilariously awkward week, before the grand final kicks off on Friday night with your usual host, Emma Willis.
5. The Crystal Maze - Friday at 8pm on Channel 4
If you enjoyed the Crystal Maze comeback but wished it was normellos taking part instead of celebrities, then you're in luck. Richard Ayoade is back for the first of 15 (FIFTEEN!) episodes of the cult game show, and this time it features civilians taking on the series of bonkers and tough challenges. And we all know 'real' people are funnier than some bloke from TOWIE and a comedian you've never heard of.
6. The Tick - Friday on Amazon Prime Video
The 2001 adaptation of surreal comic hero The Tick wasn't a huge hit, but it became a cult favourite. Now, it's back, and with underrated British comedy actor Peter Serafinowicz front and centre. Maybe just ignore Bastille's questionable cover of Green Day's 'Basket Case' from the soundtrack.
