“Please can’t you keep The Street out on the street?.” Read on for the verdict on last night’s TV.

Coronation Street, ITV1

“It surely won’t be long before the Rovers Return retires for good and the bulk of the action takes place on the prison exercise yard. At that point “popping into The Kabin for a quarter of sherbert bonbons” will take on a new meaning but until then, producers, please can’t you keep The Street out on the street?”

Kitchen Secrets, BBC2

“Blanc’s kitchen skills are self-evident, but it’s his style that is so compelling. Whether bouncing up and down saying “glooorius food” or blaming one of his staff for his own mistake, he’s pure gold.”
John Crace, The Guardian

Women, BBC4

“Ultimately this was feminism as pathology, not activism. But what would I know? I’m just a man.”
John Crace, The Guardian

“They were, in their way, an outright challenge to the stereotype of an activist as someone who is habitually bolshie and awkward. They were certainly pretty earnest, though, and without some clever directing by Vanessa Engle this could have been a rather wearying hour.”
Matt Baylis, Daily Express

FlashForward, Five

“FlashForward may have gained plenty of adrenalin-fuelled, 24-style action—bombs, shootouts and murders up close and personal - but, perhaps not surprisingly, it has lost some of its momentum.”
Debra Craine, The Times

Missing, BBC1

“Critically acclaimed is a description of Missing I should perhaps have taken with a pinch of salt since the same press notes describe Pauline Quirke’s character, DS Mary Jane Croft, as charismatic when frankly I’ve seen more charismatic mattresses.”
Gerard Gilbert, The Independent

Doctors, BBC1

“I was much more impressed with Doctors, a drama that seems to have made a virtue of its restricted budget and fast turnover to come up with unfussy, economical storytelling that could teach a thing or two to its richer, but increasingly far-fetched prime-time cousins.”
Gerard Gilbert, The Independent

Decade Of Doctors, BBC1

“If these actors seemed like a throwback to an earlier era of British TV, one of the executive producers also made the point that in its unfussy naturalistic way, Doctors is in the fine tradition of Play for Today. I might have mocked the claim once, but not now.”
Gerard Gilbert, The Independent
