Ill Behaviour: best TV to watch tonight!

Two friends learn, in Sam Bain's three-parter, that the third member of their gang is treating his cancer with fruit juice and positive thinking instead of medicine.

It's on iPlayer, ahead of a BBC2 slot later this year.

Read it in full on the website (note Lizzy Caplan's name is spelled incorrectly), and catch up with Ill Behaviour on BBC iPlayer

You could build a programme around this moment on its own – with Charlie (Tom Riley) and Tess (Jessica Regan) helping Joel rebuild his life, sending him off on dates with Nadia (Lizzy Kaplan) and so on and so forth. And up to a point it does this – but it breezes quickly through it, an act of narrative substitution shifts quickly away from a despondent Joel...

Ill Behaviour: popular summer download winner

Catch up with Tom Riley as Charlie in Ill Behaviour on BBC iPlayer, as the show gets a couple of new mentions in The Guardian this week. The BBC revealed that Ill Behaviour was anticipated to be one of their most popular holiday downloads, and another reviewer recommends the show with its delicious lines and also Lizzy Caplan.

The corporation expects its download service, which was launched in 2012, to do brisk business again this summer... ...The BBC said its summer winners were likely to include the dramas Top of The Lake: China Girl, Trust Me and Man in an Orange Shirt. Popular comedy downloads are likely to include W1A, Quacks and Ill Behaviour.
