TELEVISION / Critical Eye

In Satan's Name (ITV Tuesday) played merry hell with reviewers:

'People you would hesitate to share a table with in an all-night cafe believe that a secret satanic network is infiltrating positions of power. The question we must face after a sleepless night tossing and turning is which of the royals are satanists?' Nancy Banks-Smith, Guardian.

'The sight of people in distress - moaning, screaming, growling like a dog - has never before evoked so little pity. These people should be slapped and sent home. 'That woman is not possessed]' I yelled. 'She is doing an impression of Sigourney Weaver in Ghostbusters]' ' Lynne Truss, Times.
