Australia v England, Second Test, Adelaide
Thursday December 5, 11pm
Sky Sports 1, NOW TV
Australia smashed England in the opening encounter in Brisbane – tempers flared, quick bowlers bowled quick – it was tasty, old-fashioned Australia, regaining ground in the on-going Ashes saga. Adelaide with its tranquil churches, tranquil pitch and altogether more tranquil crowd, should be a more comfortable outing for the tourists. But have the Brisbane bruises healed? Stay up all night to find out.
Sky Movies pass
On demand, NOW TV
It’s Jessica Chastain season on NOW TV with this year’s creepiest horror finding its first small screen outing. Two children are abandoned in the woods but survive thanks to the presence of “Mama” – and are then rescued. But Mama comes back with them… Close the curtains, turn the lights off and prepare for some top-notch spooking. Directed by Andrés Muschietti.

If you haven’t seen “the best TV series ever made” yet, you’ve got a treat coming. If you have, you know you want to watch the whole lot again. Set in Baltimore’s dysfunctional inner-city, this is a complex Dickensian tale of bad cops, good drug-dealers and every other ambiguity in between. The Wire is character building, insight and writing that just does not leave you.
