Here’s your guide to what’s on television on Wednesday 6 April, from contemplative and conceptual science fiction to a devastating true crime documentary to a particularly intense dating show.

I’ve highlighted a top pick for the evening, as well as suggested an older series to check out on iPlayer if nothing on normal television catches your eye tonight.

Raised by Wolves Season 2


Raised by Wolves is a science fiction drama about two androids – Mother and Father – raising a group of human orphans on a new planet, trying to shepherd a new human society after the Earth has burned. It’s thoughtful and contemplative, and more importantly one of the rare sci-fi dramas that’s entirely original, not adapted from an existing property.

Moon Knight


Star Wars’ Oscar Isaac takes on a Marvel superhero, and clearly decides that if he’s going to take on another big franchise role, he’s going to have as much fun as he possibly humanly can doing it. This goofy slapstick gets a little darker in Moon Knight’s second episode, which introduces mercenary Marc Spector in earnest.

Thirteen is a miniseries about Ivy Moxam (Jodie Comer), a young woman recently escaped after being kidnapped as a child and imprisoned for thirteen years. Ivy tries to reconnect with her family and friends, sifting through the remains of her old life as she tries to forge a new one.

This is the kind of show that tends to fly under the radar – the sort of thing a friend recommends at length and you never get around to, even though you really should’ve listened to them – but no less worth watching as a result.
