“Yet to find his rhythm.” Read on for the verdict on last night’s TV.

John Sergeant on the Tourist Trail

John Sergeant on the Tourist Trail, ITV1

“Oh Christ, another bloody celebrity discovers Britain… You’ve done it again, John: forgotten the brief about tourist Britain and instead wandered down an emotional little path to your own past.”
Sam Wollaston, The Guardian

“Yet to find his rhythm.”
Tom Sutcliffe, The Independent

When a Mother’s Love is Not Enough, BBC1

“Rose Monckton’s film about the pressures that bear down on the parents of disabled children, was deeply moving and sometimes uncomfortable viewing.”
Tom Sutcliffe, The Independent

“Heartfelt and important.”
Andrew Billen, The Times

“The compassion was there, no doubt but it needed eking out from under the acres of bureaucracy, which is why difficult programmes like this do such a vital job.”
Matt Baylis, Daily Express

Collision, ITV1

“The secret of Collision, and why is differs from most TV drama, is that although the cast is large, every character has a back story. The only problem is that you want more of it. It’s not Howards’ End, but five hours of Collision may not be enough.”
Andrew Billen, The Times

James May’s Toy Stories, BBC2

“May be a tiny bit self-indulgent at an hour, but also inventive and unexpected and unobtrusively instructive about British social history.”
Tom Sutcliffe, The Independent

Sea Patrol UK, Five

“Somehow, much of it was quite dull to watch… Drama, in the end, is not about big waves or mortal peril; it’s just about people.”
Matt Baylis, Daily Express
