“Alaska: A Year in the Wild was a wonderful, solid hour of astonishing sights – a giant Christmas card with a savage indifference at its heart.”

“The show, narrated by the melodious voice of David Suchet, started with an avalanche of statistics about temperatures and latitudes, but thankfully soon gave up on those. What followed was simply a series of lovely images, like the fluffball of an Arctic fox that skipped over a glacier, so that its paws wouldn’t freeze to the ice.”
Christopher Stevens, Daily Mail

“Narrated with the velvety tones of David Suchet, backdropped with breathtaking camerawork, Alaska: A Year In The Wild is one of those tv shows you take in, rather than watch.”

“Is Doctor Foster an overheated guilty pleasure or authentic chronicling of how the borders of reality can bend and warp when life crashes in around you? Three episodes into the sweltering drama’s second season, the case can still be made both ways as full-throttle histrionics are invariably followed by scenes of genuine emotional resonance.”

“The divorcees going the whole hog proves that, in drama terms, Bartlett has no interest in applying the brake whatsoever. In fact, there’s a growing sense that Bartlett is chuckling away as he’s writing this stuff.”

“It was all a welcome riposte to the usual TV rule, that women only have sex when they are forced into it. But disappointingly, Doctor Foster then gave in to the common convention that all men are rapists, when Gemma’s 15-year-old son, Tom, admitted that he had sexually assaulted a female friend at a party.”

“Gory and witty — and oddly sensitive too — it’s an unusual combo, but a second series would be what the doctor ordered. Hopefully the BBC too.”
James Jackson, The Times

“It’s a measure of how much coastline we have (about 19,000 miles) and how much peril people get into along it that Saving Lives At Sea could run for six, hour-long episodes, last year and this one, without ever getting boring. The secret, perhaps, is the endless variety of human stupidity and what happens when it comes into contact with the equally endless dangers of the sea.”
