But what sort of life has he gone back to, and how does a man forever in the spotlight fill his days now he has nothing to do?”

“…that will surely be the highlight of the week for all lovers of uncompromisingly smart television” – James Walton, Telegraph

“What is the link between these numbers? 285,000, 684,000, 1.1m, 2.9m. The answer is they are soaring viewers figures for Only Connect, the toughest quiz on television, which began as a BBC4 obscurity and has now overtaken BBC1 in the ratings.” – Adam Sherwin, Independent

“Only Connect: the best quiz on TV?” – Radio Times
