Much depends on your idea of fun - compared to model railways, mine is sitting on a cross channel ferry in a force ten. :D

Well, it's fun if you're a 3'' high train enthusiast and you're allowed to ride on it.

No so much if you're a 6' tall 'anorak' that enjoys a 71 mile walk through Scotland in a hi-vis jacket. :-D

I rather enjoyed it. perhaps less reality TV deadline bullcrap would have been nice but I guess you can't get away from that for anything that isn't singing or dancing for judges these days.

Only seen ep1 so far and not sure I can put up with the mock jeopardy any more. Why do they ruin everything by assuming we won't switch over if they keep the "tension" up with fake deadlines and creatively enhanced personality clashes.

Great idea and something I should love but I am quite cross about it.

We thought exactly that. If he had tried that with me, he would have been told where to put himself
