“It’s The Apprentice with a conscience.” Read on for the full verdict on last night’s TV.

Blood, Sweat and Takeaways, BBC3
“Tears were shed, minds were broadened, and humanitarian issues were confronted. Which is all well and good. But serious subject matter aside, the series still can’t disguise its essential BBC3-ness. So whenever we aren’t being slapped around the face with sobering statistics and images of horrendous work and living conditions, we were invited to chortle derisively at the foolishness of the Brits. It’s The Apprentice with a conscience.”
Paul Whitelaw, The Scotsman

Blood, Sweat and Takeaways, BBC3
“If I wanted to hear this sort of juvenile drivel, I’d have taken a flight to Goa and checked into a backpackers’ hostel.”
Matt Baylis, Daily Express

APlace in the Wild, ITV1
“Basically a not-made-up version of Wild at Heart, that one with giraffes and Amanda Holden.”
Sam Wollaston, The Guardian

The Great British Wedding, BBC4
“Another richly frustrating programme […] in which a vast collection of archive footage was put into a blender, whizzed up into meaningless two-second clips and then overlaid with a mocking voiceover.”
Matt Baylis, Daily Express

True Stories: Kenya Murder Mystery, More4
“…through the holes in Fiona Cunningham-Reid’s film you could see some interesting things.”
Tom Sutcliffe, The Independent

Make ‘Em Laugh, BBC4
“Make ‘em Laugh squandered its potential by being just another superficial clip-show.”
Paul Whitelaw, The Scotsman

Dollhouse, Sci-Fi
“Dollhouse was built from bits of Minority Report, Total Recall, The Matrix, The Game, Quantum Leap and Joe 90. It was creakier than Frankenstein’s monster.”
Andrew Billen, The Times
