“This was a dull, pointless programme which revealed nothing we could care about.”

“9/11: Truth, Lies and Conspiracies, while not as bad as it could have been, nevertheless marks the year the sound of barrel-scraping began to drown out the sound of history.”

Lucy Mangan, The Guardian

“The programme was more a report on the work of others than the work of original investigative journalism.”

Andrew Billen, The Times

“Because the producers were desperate to be taken seriously, this was a dull, pointless programme which revealed nothing we could care about.”

Christopher Stevens, Daily Mail

“The deeper this programme delved into the matter and the confusing official responses to it, the more we, ourselves, began to question whether terms like ‘paranoia’ really applied. Far from posing theories about hidden bombs and phoney wars, these people are simply asking questions about the small amount of data that has been released to them.”

“Beneath the frenzied plotting and somewhat desperate vigour of the performances lay a surprisingly lazy script. The only things I believed were the boggy landscapes and the farmhouse furniture so darkly looming that it deserved to be taken in for questioning itself.”

Andrew Billen, The Times

“If you can look beyond the questionable plot, this is a multi-layered drama that twists and turns at every corner. The story ties you in like a tightening noose until you almost feel complicit in the murders.”

The Hairy Bikers’ Chicken & Egg, BBC2

“The Bikers’ mix of eating, cooking and bar stool history is an eternally delicious one, although they sometimes seemed to be trying a little too hard.”

Matt Baylis, Daily Express

“The format was seasoned with far too many puns. The yolks were dire. Add a couple of clucking awful sketches, sprinkle with eggscruciating puns, and you have the recipe for ‘Hairy Hentertainment’, as Dave would say in an eggscrable French accent.”
