“A mini Spellbound.” Read on for the verdict on last night’s TV.

Wonderland: I Won University Challenge

Wonderland: I Won University Challenge, BBC2

“This self-consciously quirky, taking-head show can be a little wearying at times… Usually, though, the subject matter pulls you through, and seeing a lot of people interviewed about one thing in a short space of time gives you some interesting insights into humans as a whole.”
Matt Baylis, Daily Express

“They’re brilliant, all of them, both as intellects and as subjects for a documentary. To be admired, and to be ever so slightly amused by, but not to be mocked. Alisa Pomroy, whose film this is, is careful not to do that… It’s all gentle and sensitive, and lovely for it. A mini Spellbound.”
Sam Wollaston, The Guardian

“The documentary didn’t celebrate their superior knowledge, but laughed at them – with a straight face, of course, which made this gawp-at-the-swots exercise a little unpleasant.”
Tim Teeman, The Times

“The latest charming Wonderland documentary.”
Alice-Azania Jarvis, The Independent

The Schoolboy Who Sailed the World, Channel 4

“In August, 17-year-old Michael Perham became the youngest person to have sailed around the world solo… his achievement is immense. So why was the Cutting Edge documentary charting his world record so slow and boring? When everyone’s jolly nice, there’s nothing much to say but “Good show.”
Tim Teeman, The Times

“Ok then, so it is an extraordinary feat. But this documentary was, at an hour and 40 minutes, way too long.”
Sam Wollaston, The Guardian

“Michael seemed to spend more of his time either in tears of having to patch up his boat. It was gripping, really, though in a rather horrible way, given his age.”
Alice-Azania Jones, The Independent

Curb Your Enthusiasm, More4

“A show that you recommend to a friend first with a shrug, then if they ignore your counsel you find yourself grabbing them by the lapels and saying it more urgently. Until they understand.”
Tim Teeman, The Times

Fearne and Alesha Dixon, ITV2

“It was the last of this ill-fated ITV2 series and, possibly, the least fathomable. Why would anyone want to interview Alesha Dixon?”
Alice-Azania Jarvis, The Independent
