Ones to watch tonight

Anyone interested in the Pax Britannia setting, and associated milieu, could do a lot worse than check out two programmes on TV tonight. Unfortunately they're both on at 9.00pm, so you'll need to record one or watch it later on iPlayer. They are...

London 2008. A series of bloody, tragic and impossible crimes suggest someone is carrying out copycat Jack the Ripper murders 120 years after the killer first struck. The clock is ticking as the case turns into a hunt for an old adversary, with three unlikely heroes at the centre of it all.

Good call on Darwin's Struggle, Jon. I don't think anyone else shook up the human race's self-image as much in our entire history.
