“There were some details that didn’t ring true. But the bigger picture felt authentic…” Read on for the verdict on last night’s TV.

The Kennedys

The Kennedys, History

“There were some details that didn’t ring true. But the bigger picture felt authentic, and myths are there to be debunked.”
John Crace, The Guardian

“Katie Holmes, who, although cast as Jackie, the most glamorous woman on the planet, remains every inch Joey Potter from Dawson’s Creek. Watchable trash.”
Andrew Billen, The Times

“What a disappointment. The Kennedys is many things - lusciously filmed, richly sound tracked - but exciting isn’t one of them. Neither is good.”
Alice-Azania Jarvis, The Independent

Bodyshock: Dad’s Having a Baby, Channel 4

“I’m sure Channel 4 will argue the film was made to confront people’s prejudices, but it felt hideously voyeuristic and exploitative, leaving me feeling distinctly grubby.”
John Crace, The Guardian

“Ultimately the most shocking aspect of this tale wasn’t to do with human biology but the extent to which some people place their own happiness over any other concern.”
Matt Baylis, The Express

“It was all rather fascinating, and more than a little moving.”
Alice-Azania Jarvis, The Independent

Rubicon, BBC4

“Rubicon, a quickly cancelled conspiracy thriller, shows us what American TV can do when it flouts network convention. At only 13 episodes, Rubicon looks as if will be a quality investment in our time.”
Andrew Billen, The Times
