88% Cheat: Series 1 (TV, 2018) Whereas its other current offering - BBC1's Baptiste - is still meandering around and getting nowhere slow after four episodes, Cheat got stuck in straight away. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

5/5 53% White Dragon: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Last night's opening episode sucked me straight in and ended with a twist that would make even Bodyguard writer Jed Mercurio jealous. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

5/5 100% Fleabag: Season 2 (TV, 2016) There were enough jokes about pedophiles, miscarriages, alcoholics, lewd sex acts and Catholic priests in Fleabag's second series opener to keep the Points Of View postbag bulging for a year. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

54% Mr. Selfridge: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2016) I've rarely seen an actor bring such energy to a role from the outset. It was like a pair of hands had burst out of the screen and gripped your head while a voice yelled, 'You ain't going nowhere buddy!" - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

83% An Idiot Abroad: An Idiot Abroad 3: The Short Way Round (TV, 2010-2012) Despite my initial fears that this looked like the sort of unwelcome meddling that could kill off a brilliant TV show for good, I have to accept that Gervais may have known what he was doing all along. - Daily Mail (UK) EDIT

4/5 33% Bad Move: Series 2 (TV, 2017) It's never going to be a sitcom classic, but the characters are well drawn and there are plenty of laughs. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet No Offence: Season 3 (TV, 2015-2018) The problem is that you could run the risk of overshadowing the heart-stopping stuff with a jokey interlude involving the knicker situation of Joanna Scanlon's brilliant Detective Inspector Viv Deering. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

4/5 89% Vanity Fair: Miniseries (TV, 2018) It's the fifth TV adaptation of Thackeray's novel and Palin's fairground cameo instantly made it feel different - almost like he was narrating a fairy tale. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

4/5 92% Bodyguard: Series 1 (TV, 2018) All I can say is I already do not trust anyone in it - which is exactly what you want from a thriller. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

5/5 50% The Real Marigold Hotel: Season 3 (TV, 2016-2018) Of course, there remains about as much chance of any of this lot retiring to India as there does of Brad Pitt doing Strictly Come Dancing. In which case, I hope they can at least use some of the things they learned out there. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

100% Save Me: Series 1 (TV, 2018) What is also not going to happen is me watching the whole series in one sitting. It's far too tense. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

100% Trauma: Series 1 (TV, 2018) Dan's extreme method of forcing the medic to admit his error made for the most nail-biting TV I've seen since the last Line Of Duty finale. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT
