“A show packed with the type of showmanship and useful professional tips that are Oliver’s stock in trade.”

Jamie's Quick and Easy Food

“Four speedy dishes, using five ingredients, in 30 minutes, including the ad break. He exhausts and energises you in equal measure. Of course, Jamie’s great gift is to bring even handmade-flatbreads-while-your-eggs-boil within the reach of mere mortals.”
Lucy Mangan, The Guardian

“Jamie’s Quick and Easy Food has Oliver apparently experiencing a full-blown manic episode. Whether that’s just down to him being a very busy man or the Superfoods presenter Kate Quilton administering him caffeine enemas at Channel 4 HQ, it matters not, because his new recipes look insanely tasty.”
James Jackson, The Times

“A show packed with the type of showmanship and useful professional tips that are Oliver’s stock in trade. There was something else too: a sense that these five-ingredient recipes really were quick and easy – and a corresponding urge to give them a try.”
Gerard O’Donovan, The Telegraph

“Jamie has lost touch with reality. At one point, he urged us to ‘add a simple splash of red wine vinegar from your store cupboard’, as though we all live in delicatessens. This show is for lottery winners only.”

Storyville: Silk Road – Drugs, Death and the Dark Web, BBC4

“Mysteries are only mysterious until they are explained, at which point they often become rather humdrum. I watched a full 85 minutes of Silk Road: Drugs, Death and the Dark Web only to have two people sum the whole thing up, matter-of-factly in the final five: if you start hanging with criminals, you become like one.”
Matt Baylis, Daily Express

“The ambient, percussive soundtrack and constant clicking of keys made for an oddly numbed sensibility, suggesting the disconnect of the internet user, tapping away in their coffee shop, from the actual impact of what they’re doing.”
James Jackson, Times

“It was a tale of painstaking work in an overwhelmingly new field that ended after two long, frustrating years. How much longer and frustrating the investigation would have been without IRS special agent Gary Alford was a question the film rather skated over.”

All Gardens Great And Small, More 4

“There will be a Mary Berry-shaped hole in our lives when The Great British Bake Off returns next week. But luckily Miranda Hart’s green-fingered mother, Dee Hart Dyke, is here to fill the adorable yet formidable void in new series All Gardens Great and Small.”
Daisy Wyatt, The i

“The gardening tips are entertaining, if often daft. But the real interest lies in seeing how similar mother and daughter are, and guessing how much of real life creeps into Miranda’s comedy.”
