ITV2 Smallville “Slumber”

ITV4 Andromeda “Delenda Est”

LIVING Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman “Pilot, Part I” – kicking off the first season, which actually isn’t too bad (considering the drivel the show would later descend into), and features the better (more geeky) Jimmy Olsen (actor Michael Landes was replaced by Justin Whalin in season two) and Tracy Scoggins (later to join Babylon 5) as a bitchy society columnist.

SCI FI Quantum Leap “Right Hand of God”

SKY TWO Stargate SG-1 “Memento”

7.30pm

ZONE HORROR The Twilight Zone

8pm

SCI FI Medium “Pilot” – if you haven’t been watching this excellent series, here’s your chance to acquaint yourself with it right from the beginning. Ghost Whisperer viewers can use this to wean themselves off their habit

TROUBLE Charmed “Repo Manor”

VIRGIN 1 Star Trek: Deep Space Nine “Shakaar”

9pm

SCI FI Medium “Four Dreams, Part I” – the season three premier

VIRGIN 1 Star Trek: Enterprise “Oasis”

10pm

SCI FI Medium “Four Dreams, Part II”

VIRGIN 1 Blade: The Series “Pilot” – half-decent opening episode to a middling series, in which the eponymous character rarely gets to play more than a supporting role in his own show. The evil vampires are much more fun to watch, anyway. Fans of German rock music will love it

Midnight

LIVING The X-Files “Lazarus”

1am

LIVING Charmed “It’s a Bad, Bad, Bad, Bad World, Part II”
