Tony Parsons' Without Walls film, 'Souled Out' (C4 Tue): 'Parsons' message that pop is no longer something central to growing up was convincing, but one couldn't help feeling that there was . . . a certain factor intimately connected with the age of the person listening to it.' Chris Peachment, Daily Telegraph

'Parsons whined like a demented but toothless rottweiler, determined to savage his victim but unable to inflict even a decent gumming . . . The pop scene remains, but try as he may, our presenter just cannot get at it.' Victor Lewis-Smith, Evening Standard

'He's an eloquent writer but dearie me, he's a terrible misery guts. But then he was once Mr Burchill: enough to sour a man for life.' Maureen Paton, Daily Express
