“A revolting little show.” Read on for the verdict on last night’s TV.

The Delicious Miss Dahl

The Delicious Miss Dahl, BBC2

“The first problem is its title, and from it its other problems flow. By process of transferred epithet, it muddles the delights of the model’s cooking with the delights of her body.”
Andrew Billen, The Times

“Far from being delicious this is a revolting little show whose very existence exposes the dull vacuum at the heart of our national broadcasting corporation.”
Matt Baylis, Daily Express

“Delicious Sophie has a lot going for her - she is genuinely likeable - but sadly she isn’t a natural in the kitchen.”
Kylie O’Brien, The Daily Telegraph

“The Delicious Miss Dahl is as delightful as a day-old chick. Don’t stamp on it.”
Nancy Banks-Smith, The Guardian

Edward VII: Prince of Pleasure, BBC2

“The historian Piers Brendon made a half-hearted comparison between his long wait for the throne and Prince Charles’s but—and despite our future king’s own famous mistress - it didn’t wash.”
Andrew Billen, The Times
