Londonist Stays In

After a brief hiatus, we’re back with lots of fun things to do this week from the comfort of your own home. Get cozy on the couch with a cup of tea, because there are lots of things to watch this week.

On TV, Londonist likes:

Tuesday, 16 October

Britain's Biggest Storm (ITV1, 21:00-22:30) If your interest was piqued by this week’s Monday Miscellanea, you’ll want to catch this documentary on the 20th anniversary of, as the title suggests, Britain’s biggest storm.

Spooks (BBC1, 21:00-22:00) Spooks is back for yet another series of harrowing terrorist attacks and incredibly tense political intrigue. London is once again under attack in this episode, as Rupert Penry-Jones tears himself away from Martine McCutcheon and Tesco deliveries long enough to lead his team to victory once again.

Wednesday, 17 October

Location, Location, Location: Best and Worst Live! (Channel 4, 21:00-22:40) Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer show us the best and worst that Britain has to offer in terms of places to live. Last year Hackney was voted most undesirable, so fingers crossed that it does better this year!

Friday, 19 October

Katie and Peter: Unleashed (ITV2, 21:00-22:00) You know this is going to be a train wreck, so don’t you want to catch a glimpse before it all goes horribly wrong? Jordan and Peter Andre try to become to next Jonathan Ross, and have promised lots of celebrity guests, music and audience participation. What’s not to love?

Saturday, 20 October

Rugby World Cup 2007 (ITV1, 19:45-22:00) Sure, there are other programmes on the telly on Saturday, but really, aren’t we all going to be watching the rugby final? Let’s not kid ourselves here.

The Friday Play: OK Computer (21:00-21:58) Very fitting for the week following the release of Radiohead’s new album, here’s a play inspired by OK Computer. A collaboration by four writers, this is the perfect companion to your fortieth listen of In Rainbows.

Do Me … London - Okay, the name’s a bit misleading. This isn’t a site about anything dodgy or kinky, but it’s actually a pretty cool site. There are lots of audio guide sites out there, and we like a whole lot of them, but this may be the first one that sends informative and funny info on different parts of London straight to your mobile. It’s pretty straightforward – using the web feature of your phone, select the area you’d like to hear about, select it and wait for the call. Answer your phone, and you’re all set. As a bonus, you’ll look less crazy laughing while holding a phone to your ear, rather than listening to an iPod.
