“It's Coast meets River Cottage meets Robinson Crusoe.” Read on for the critics' full verdict on last night's TV.

Monty Halls' Great Escape, BBC2
“It's Coast meets River Cottage meets Robinson Crusoe.”
Matt Baylis, Daily Express

Monty Halls' Great Escape, BBC2
“A hybrid of natural-history programme, lifestyle makeover and reality challenge that was only mildly undermined by the fact that Monty's only there for the summer months.”
Tom Sutcliffe, The Independent

Monty Halls' Great Escape, BBC2
“What does it say about a TV programme, I wonder, when the star is a ferry?”
Sam Wollaston, The Guardian

Being Human, BBC3
“The series started well and seemed to get better almost every week. By last night's conclusion, it had matured into a marvellously enjoyable and surprisingly affecting show, which turned its punchline of a premise into a metaphor for everyday struggles to make connections, overcome their selfishness and insecurities and to live a decent life.”
Andrea Mullaney, The Scotsman

Al Murray's Multiple Personality Disorder, ITV1
“A sketch-show format from the Viz school of comedy.”
Tom Sutcliffe, The Independent

Paul Merton Looks at Alfred Hitchcock, BBC4
“Merton directed as well as presented, which may account for the slightly erratic inventiveness of the thing, but it was a thoroughly enjoyable film, partly because Merton had had the good sense to let Hitchcock do most of the talking.”
Tom Sutcliffe, The Independent

Christianity: a History, C4
“The show was a waste of resources: not of air miles but of its intereviewees, Mrs Bush and Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor.”
Andrew Billen, The Times
