Tonight's Tele Tip : This Is England '90

Good tele is like buses. 

You wait ages for something good to come on and then three come along at once. 

That's especially true of tonight's TV, which sees BBC1 offering up a new adaptation of An Inspector Calls at 8:30pm featuring David Thewlis, Ken Stott, Miranda Richardson and Chole Pirrie; ITV conclude the rather good Ray Winstone mini-series The Trials Of Jimmy Rose at 9pm; and Channel 4 conclude Shane Meadows' This Is England '90, the concluding chapter in the lives of a group of Nottingham based skinheads and suedeheads who were first introduced to us ten years ago with his 1983 set movie This Is England before subsequent TV spin off's set in '86 and '88 respectively.

All of these are worthy of your attention but, needless to say, it is This Is England '90 that you have to clear your diary for. Tonight, 9pm.

But don't take my word for it - take the word of Miranda Sawyer instead, who sums it up brilliantly in The Guardian 

Top one!
