“[A] compelling, bittersweet documentary.” Read on for the critics' full verdict on last night's TV.

The Jacksons are Coming, C4
“The Jacksons are odd. But on this showing, they are mostly oddly dignified, oddly resigned and oddly tolerant of a life that has evidently been strewn with betrayals, disloyalty and exploitation on all sides.”
Lucy Mangan, The Guardian

The Jacksons are Coming, C4
“It did shine a little unintentional light on the wider issue of privacy and celebrity. Where do you draw the line with those who rely on the media, but demand that it leave them alone?”
Mick Hume, The Times

The Jacksons are Coming, C4
“[A] compelling, bittersweet documentary.”
Robert Collins, The Daily Telegraph

The Prisoner: Toby Young, Virgin 1
“Viewers who tuned in to see the self-confessedly obnoxious Toby incarcerated with homicidal maniacs will, however, have been disappointed. The Prisoner should really be called Prison Visitor.”
Mick Hume, The Times

The Closer, More 4
“There is a lot of dry humour in this detective series, with some very droll lines [... ]The plot side, though, isn't so great, with a fairly easy-to-solve crime, which didn't really go anywhere and was conveniently resolved by the suspect helpfully confessing.”
Andrea Mullaney, The Scotsman

Beeching Tracks, BBC4
“A jolly affair.”
Deborah Orr, The Independent
