    Very much so - he's my favourite presenter out of the whole lot. (I always like barn conversions: very old farm buildings with very modern, open-plan interiors - my ideal. The problem is that most of them are in areas of the country without cable internet available, and even the "broadband" speeds are highly variable, especially in the more remote locations.)

    I totally recommend Devon as a place to live - you just have to accept it as what it is - a large island off England. These could be good points or bad, depends on your viewpoint -
    * most of the population is elderly, half of it is retired, there is almost no ethnic diversity
    * we drive about slowly (there are few good roads anyway)
    * it rains a lot (but hardly ever freezes)
    * even the "big" shops never have what you want or in the right size
    * all service is slow (but exceptionally friendly), everybody wants to chat rather than get on with the job
    * the countryside and coasts are gorgeous.
    I shall never leave.

    Sounds like a description of Lyme Regis and Seatown in west Dorset - A nice area if you're into piece and quite, not much going on apart from fishing, fossil hunting and the occasional pasty.

    I'm surprised how very rarely internet access/speeds are mentioned, on that show.

    You do see the occasional "work from home" people who raise it as an issue, but it seems to me not to get the prominence it deserves. I know most people don't need live streaming price-charts of the markets, but they surely need/want Skype, and to download films, and so on? In some rural areas where the "broadband" is advertised as "up to 15MB/s", you're often lucky to get 5Mb/s, and it's a real issue.

    Dorset is more leafy and doesn't have the range of coastlines, but it does have an advantage - its not on the way anywhere - the people who you bump into there are there because they wanted to be there.

    Of course, its a bit worrying if we go over the border and see a big wicker man on the hillside - then its a U-turn and straight back home.
