Fancy gazing at Professor Brian Cox while he gazes at stars alongside Dara O Briain??? The pair return for further exploration of the night sky, beginning with the search for evidence of life on Mars and ask viewers to help investigate an uncharted area of the planet's surface. Meanwhile, our other Irish lovely, Liz Bonnin, reports live from Nasa mission control to reveal the latest findings of the Curiosity rover, and Mark Thompson offers tips on how to observe the moons of Jupiter. Back down on planet Earth, BBC1 kick off a new series of Death in Paradise at 9.00pm. How does Ben Miller not sweat his unmentionables off in that suit we'll never know. Expect appearances by Stephanie Beacham (Dynasty), James Cosmo (Game of Thrones) and Tom Ward (Silent Witness).
