“It builds a sense that everyone here is the lead in their own life.” Read on for the verdict on last night’s TV.

Seven Dwarves, Channel 4

“There are plenty of moments when Seven Dwarves feels as if it has rung the wrong kind of bell, summoning uneasy memories of Psychoville’s provocative dance along the borders of good taste. And there are details that strike you as very odd indeed, such as the row of Disney soft-toy dwarves you saw ranged along Josh’s bedhead at one point. But it also builds a sense that everyone here is the lead in their own life – and not just a novelty walk-on for a Christmas entertainment.”
Tom Sutcliffe, The Independent

“A mixture of interviews and fly-on-the-wall footage, it neither bangs the diversity drum too much nor keeps on insisting that we’re all the same.”
Matt Baylis, The Express

“It turned out to be extremely watchable, thanks to the warmly engaging subjects and the absence of any “it’s a small world” crassness.”
James Jackson, The Times

Wilfred, BBC3

“Once you’ve got used to its low-key pace, it’s genuinely funny, with Wilfred alternating between the administration of slacker philosophy and a hapless submission to his own doggy instincts, as when the friendly ear-ruffling of a pretty waitress ends in Wilfred’s vigorous attempt to mate with her leg.”
Tom Sutcliffe, The Independent

“The show is like one of those goofy old live-action Disney comedies refracted through a Kevin Smith stoner movie. And so far, so amusing.”
James Jackson, The Times

“Yeah, quite nice. There’s more than a hint of other shows – a bit Master(pastry)chef, a bit Britain’s Got A-word-that-sounds-a-bit-like-talent-but-connected-with-baking-I-can’t-quite-think-of, a bit Flour and Eggs factor (ouch).”
Sam Wollaston, The Guardian
