TV tonight: Diane Morgan crashes The League of Gentlemen cast reunion | Television

Inside No. 9

10pm, BBC Two

Diane Morgan steals the show in the opener of Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith’s seventh season of their dark comedy anthology series. She plays ditsy, mouth-to-mouth Donna, who joins her new boyfriend Darren and his old uni friends Callum and Lawrence (played by Shearsmith, Pemberton and their former League of Gentlemen co-star Mark Gatiss) for a Reunion. It’s not exactly what she expects: They spend the day on a pedal boat that gets stuck, and soon disturbing topics come up. Fortunately, Morgan has enough deadpan one-liners to ease the tension.

Raised by wolves

9 p.m., Sky Atlantic

The inventive and often bizarre sci-fi drama manages to explore allegorically different aspects of religion and belief while remaining genuinely entertaining.

The Lady and the Dale

21:00, Sky Documentaries

This riveting four-part documentary is a twisting tale of trust betrayal that revolves around the 1970s three-wheeled car, the Dale. It’s all the more complicated when entrepreneur Elizabeth Carmichael transitioned from Jerry Carmichael, raising media questions about whether this was a supposed identity to escape her criminal background.
