DIGITAL We've Scoured the Digital and Satellite Channels to Pick Five Unmissable Shows


what? Being Human when? BBC Three, tomorrow, 9pm Annie finds herself in even stranger surroundings than usual at the start of the third series: trapped in purgatory, waiting to hear her fate.

Meanwhile, Annie's best friends and former housemates - werewolf couple George and Nina, and reformed vampire Mitchell - are hoping for a fresh start by moving to Wales.

1 Mitchell, however, is finding it hard to settle in at their new home - a kitsch B&B named Honolulu Heights. He's struggling with the guilt of his bloodthirsty revenge at the end of the last series, but - most importantly - he's missing Annie.

Determined to get her back Mitchell enters purgatory, where he meets Lia, above.

Though sweet and sparky, Lia lets Mitchell into a dark secret that threatens to haunt him day and night, and to tear his friendships apart. Watch out for EastEnders' Lacey Turner as Lia in this eagerly-anticipated walk on the wild side.

It almost beggars belief but for Laura Hall, 21, below, it's now her reality, after she began drinking alcohol and displaying shocking behaviour to such an extreme that the first nationwide 'booze 2 Asbo' was slapped on her.

This one-off documentary follows her journey, after more than 40 arrests, as she regularly consumes 150 units of alcohol a week, but chronicles her determination to change as she enters rehab.

The cameras followed Laura, who was expelled from school at 15, for six months, witnessing the highs and lows in her attempts to get her life back on track.

what? Justice - A Citizen's Guide to the 21st Century when? BBC Four, Monday, 9pm The Beeb is getting all legally minded this week on BBC Four with the Justice - A Citizen's Guide season, and giving us plenty of food for thought.

Here they're asking us to imagine that there's a plane somewhere over London with a bomb on it, and a suspect in custody refusing to speak.

What's happens to the suspect's human rights if he was to be tortured for the information?
