This has been a show-stopping year for the cake-making contest.

It's been very, very hard for American unscripted television to employ pure gentleness without cloying sentimentality, to balance kindness and bluntness... The Great British Baking Show does [this] effortlessly.

It's likely there has never been anyone on American reality television quite like Martha Collison.

The Great British Bake Off is back and promises to be as addictive as a Mary Berry signature scone

The Great British Bake Off's move to BBC One could have gone badly wrong. Thankfully, judging from the opening episode of the show's fifth series, the change of channels is purely logistical.

There's something weirdly soothing about the competitive nature of The Great British Baking Show.

Plaudits all round for a successful series that stuck to the recipe. It was a good bake.

The show is never without drama... but it rarely feels out-of-control, and always, without fail, makes us crave a good pastry.

Nov 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Nancy Birtwhistle, grandmother of eight, microwaver of dough, bottler of homegrown fruit and the one with decades of wily kitchen knowhow, had gloriously come from miles behind to win.

However, this seemingly straightforward series is anything but: It bucks reality competition convention at every turn, espousing an uplifting, unquestionably humanist philosophy.
