Doctor Who

8 p.m. on BBC AMERICA

This special episode, which concludes Thursday, reassembles a Whovian adventure from 1967 revolving around Patrick Troughton’s second incarnation of the Doctor. Unfortunately, that six-part story — which finds the Doctor and his companions battling identity-stealing aliens called the Chameleons — largely went missing after its initial broadcast. This two-night re-creation has been assembled by using new animations over the original off-air recordings of the show’s soundtrack.



8 p.m. on CW – Series Premiere

Adapted from Guido Maria Brera’s novel “I Diavoli,” this international thriller stars Alessandro Borghi as Massimo Ruggero, the charming yet ruthless head of trading at one of the most important investment banks in the world. After his mentor, company CEO Dominic Morgan (Patrick Dempsey), unexpectedly passes Massimo over for a coveted promotion, Massimo finds himself the prime suspect in a murder investigation. To clear his name, Massimo must decide whether to remain loyal to Dominic or go up against him. Laia Costa, Lars Mikkelsen and Malachi Kirby co-star.
