TELEVISION / Review of the week

Body and Soul (ITV, Thurs):

'Nuns in fiction are seldom taken seriously. So it was refreshing to see a sympathetic treatment . . .' Caroline Hendrie, Daily Express

'Whatever happens over the next six weeks, you can be fairly sure that it will be entirely free of significance, seriousness or substance . . . It's all huge fun and beautifully made, with excellent performances from all the principals and a plot that makes up in pace what it lacks in believability.' Marcus Berkmann, Daily Mail

'This nun will run and run.' Pam Francis, Today

'Kristin Scott Thomas changes her accent for every scene, which is curious, but if nobody on the production team noticed I suppose it's a bit late to mention it now.' Lynne Truss, The Times
