Tuesday's best TV: Doctor Foster; Saving Lives at Sea; Quacks - The Guardian - per Theguardian
This cult-series-in-waiting never quite got the viewing numbers it deserved, but we’ll miss it when it’s gone. The Victorian setting and cast suggest a Horrible Histories sketch (and even more so now, with HH’s Ben Willbond as dashing French surgeon Patrice Dupont), but the script from Rev’s James Wood has moments of emotional acuity amid the gags and gore. In this series finale, Dr Hendrick (Rupert Everett) himself is about to go under the knife. Ellen E Jones

I’d also have appreciated some account of how it is that the RNLI is the only vital emergency service that is not in public (ie state) hands. From Cornwall to Anglesey to central London we found brave folk volunteering their services for free, in a way they don’t for the Fire Service or HM Coastguard, say – 5,000 of them in all. Yet, anything that relies on public donations and charity, as the RNLI does, is prone to underfunding when the economy takes a downturn (as we are about to discover again), and, arguably, funding through taxation is more secure and reliable than bring and buy fairs.

Last year alone RNLI lifeboat crews around the UK and Ireland rescued 8,643 people, saving 431 lives, while the charity's lifeguards responded to 17,414 incidents and saved 127 lives on some of the UK's busiest beaches.

This wasn’t a flashy documentary, but it didn’t need to be; the generous, decent people on the boats made fascinating television by themselves. We met the crew of the Eastbourne station, whose job includes ministering to the many people who commit suicide by throwing themselves off Beachy Head each year.
