Angus returns as Alan in series two of 'Pramface' which sees the Derbyshire household reeling from their new arrival.

Clive meets journalist and novelist John Lanchester. John has described his new book 'Capital' as a "big, fat, London novel." Set against the backdrop of the financial crash, it's the story of the residents of Pepys Road. The neighbours all receive an anonymous postcard with the message 'We Want What You Have'. Who's behind it and what do they want? As the mystery deepens, the world around Pepys Road is turned upside down and its residents lives change beyond recognition.

Clive also chats to actor Frances Barber who is about to star alongside Kevin Bishop in a darkly comic film, 'May I Kill U?'. Frances plays the mother of cycle cop Baz who turns into a psychopath following a freak accident on a cycle path.

Nikki Bedi interviews singer Roses Gabor who has toured with Gorillaz and performed in a range of venues from Madison Square Gardens to Glastonbury Festival. She has contributed to some of the biggest underground records of recent years and is now taking centre stage with her debut single 'Stars' which she performs in the studio.

More music comes from avant-garde jazz dubstep ensemble Submotion Orchestra who perform 'Thinking' from their album 'Fragments'.

Clive Anderson, Timothy Spall, Mark Williams, Virginia Ironside, Pippa Evans, Serafina Steer, Old Tire Swingers

What ho! That charming chappie Clive Anderson has a simply spiffing line-up this week! He'll be parlaying with that wonderful plebeian actor Tim Spall who's playing Bertie Wooster in a new BBC One adaptation of P.G. Wodehouse's Blandings on Sunday 13 January at 6:30pm. Bally good stuff, eh?
Segueing seamlessly we move from English gentleman to English Clergyman. Hearing Clive's confession this week is Mark Williams - former denizen of the parishes of the Fast Show and Harry Potter. Mark stars as Father Brown starting on BBC One Monday 14 January at 2.10pm.
Agony aunt Virginia Ironside will be in full effect too. In between sorting out Clive's "difficulties", Virginia will spill the beans on her latest comic novel which deals with the vagaries of getting on a bit. It's called, "No! I Don't Need Reading Glasses!" AND she's got a forthcoming 'granny stand-up tour'. Get her.
Pippa Evans will be exhausted, poor love. She's coming straight from a 50 hour non-stop improvised comedy soap opera. She's hot-footing it to Loose Ends central to make it up as she goes along with Jon Holmes. There's no helping some people. The Sixth Annual London Improvathon is at Hoxton Hall until Sunday 13 January at 9pm.
Top notch tunes this week come all the way from sunny California with a whiff of the Appalachian mountains. The Old Tire Swingers peddle their own brand of hard-driving old-time string band with a song called 'Big Eyed Rabbit' from their self-titled album.
And Jarvis Cocker's fave Serafina Steer is a harp playing multi-instrumentalist who will be taking us on an 'Island Odyssey' - the the current single from her new album 'The Moths Are Real'.

In this episode, the team is thrown into panic as Lorna announces there may be job cuts while Malcolm joins a dating website, fearing that unmarried registrars may be made redundant.

Births, Deaths and Marriages is the sitcom set in a Local Authority Register Office where the staff deal with the three greatest events in anybody's life.

Written by David Schneider (The Day Today, I'm Alan Partridge), who also stars as chief registrar Malcolm Fox - a stickler for rules and willing to interrupt any wedding service if the width of the bride infringes health and safety. He's unmarried but why does he need to be? He's married thousands of women.

Alongside him are rival and divorcee Lorna who has been parachuted in from Car Parks to drag the office (and Malcolm) into the 21st century. To her, marriage isn't just about love and romance, it's got to be about making a profit in our new age of austerity.

There's also the ever spiky Mary, geeky Luke who's worried he'll end up like Malcolm one day, and ditzy Anita who may get her words and names mixed up occasionally but, as the only parent in the office, is a mother to them all.

Lucie wound up travelling the world with the Doctor's great-grandson Alex in the 22nd century.

However, it isn't long before the Doctor is needed again - the Daleks return for a second attempt after he stopped them invading Earth in his first body. This time, it looks like they might succeed, and the Doctor is nowhere to be seen. What's more, it seems another old foe is part of the Daleks' plans - and so is an old friend.

As the odds stack up against Lucie and her human allies, the Doctor finally comes to her aid - but will he get there in time? When he does, will it ultimately matter?
