The best things to watch on TV tonight, Thursday 11 November, 2021
Surgeons: At the Edge of Life - BBC Two - 9pm
A fourth series of the fascinating medical documentary returns tonight, although it's for strong stomachs only and is perhaps not ideal viewing alongside tonight's drama Temple.
Featured in the complex surgeries tonight are a patient with a head and neck cancerous tumour, and a woman whose enlarged aorta are in danger of rupturing.
The Trial of Louise Woodward - ITV - 9pm
In 1997, Louise Woodward was charged with the murder of a baby in her care while she was working as a nanny in the US.
The British teen has always insisted she did not shake or hit baby Matthew and although she was originally convicted of murder, it was later reduced to involuntary manslaughter and she was sent home to the UK.

Now, 25 years on the controversial case gets a documentary looking into the case and what Woodward says really happened.
Mary Berry - Love to Cook - BBC Two - 8pm
The original Bake Off judge is known for her perfect cakes, but that isn't the only thing she can whip up in the kitchen - her no-nonsense, delicious savoury recipe shows are always a hit, too.
Berry returns with this new series including some seasonal warming favourites that you'll love to try out at home.
Beat the Devil - Sky Arts - 9pm
David Hare's play about his experience of developing COVID on the first day of the UK lockdown was a sell-out in London when theatres reopened, and now it has a TV adaptation at Sky.
Starring Ralph Fiennes as Hare in this gripping, tough to watch memoir of his experience and his skewering of the government's failings in the pandemic.
Temple - Sky - 9pm
The drama starring Mark Strong as Daniel, a surgeon who has gone rogue and is performing illicit operations outside of hospitals for a series of shady characters continues tonight.
In this episode, he's heading to a foreign embassy - but will the high-profile connections he makes be good for him?
