And in even more TV news: another one-off special worth looking out for later this year is Hacks - Channel 4's upcoming comedy based on the recent newspaper phone-hacking scandal. 

Written by Drop The Dead Donkey creator Guy Jenkins (pictured above), Hacks is set in a fictional newspaper, where journalists frequently use phone-tapping, private investigators and even pinging - which is when a phone signal is used to track someone's whereabouts.

Shane Allen, Channel 4's head of comedy, says: "We are very excited bout Hacks and it's great that Channel 4 can be so quick off the mark to shine a satirical light on what's been happening in the media over the last few months". (quote source: BBC)
