'It was a story about the engrossing lives other people lead.” Read on for the critics' full verdict on last night's TV.

Cutting Edge: Addicted to Surrogacy, C4
“Picking out the most extraordinary quotes from Addicted To Surrogacy is a tough job. There was the woman who said: ‘What else could you do that makes you feel so good [as having repeated babies for other people]?' Well, almost anything, I would have.”
Andrea Mullaney, The Scotsman

Cutting Edge: Addicted to Surrogacy, C4
“Wisely, Lucy Leveugle's excellent film did not try to penetrate the ethical morass surrounding paid-for surrogate motherhood, but simply presented several cases from the point of view of the pregnant surrogate, the expectant customers, or both. More than anything else it was a story about the engrossing lives other people lead.”
Brian Viner, The Independent

Extreme Fishing with Robson Green, Five
“So it's not as extreme as it might be. And, yes, Robson can be a little annoying. But that's also part of his charm.”
Sam Wollaston, The Guardian

Law & Order: UK, ITV1
“I was kind to Law & Order: UK [last week] because I want ITV to succeed, and because since last summer it has produced drama worth staying with: The Children, Lost in Austen, Unforgiven and, most successfully in the ratings, Whitechapel. And although it is now saying that it will not do anything again as highbrow and experimental as Austen and that prestige one-offs are out of the question, I still hope against hope that these desperational times will produce work of ambition. If the days of The Royal, Heartbeat, Sharpe and Midsomer Murders are now numbered, the way may even be clear.”
Andrew Billen, The Times

Coronation Street, ITV1
“Continues to produce efficient sensations that resolve themselves in a few weeks while allowing time for quality comedy dialogue.”
Andrew Billen, The Times
