TV Guide 2018-11-10

This week, Dave invites us to Beat the Internet (Thu). Two great shows begin new series: hello Spy School (CITV and ITV, Sun), welcome back Richard Osman's House of Games (BBC2, weekdays). I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue brings its usual quality (R4, Mon).

It's Children in Need week, marked with a special Mastermind (BBC2, Fri). The Challenge channel welcomes Small Talk (Sun) and Robot Wars (weekdays). We're intrigued by Dianc! (S4C, Wed), an "adventure challenge" series that might be a game show as we know it.
