So the excellent series of The Boat That Guy Built has come to an end (you can see the last episode on iPlayer here) and with a shiny new blue boat Guy and Mave have come a long way in fitting out their tatty old narrowboat into a perfect celebration of the British Empire during the Industrial Revolution.
When I first wrote about this show here I thought it would be a nice little series that introduced the world to a very likeable biker and from reading through the comments people have left on their it seems for the most part everyone agrees with me. Apart from a few people complaining about not knowing what the heavily accented guy was going on about a lot of the time, I haven’t really heard anything bad about the series. This is a very good thing because hopefully the BBC got the ratings needed to commission a second series and at the end of the show Guy even said himself: “how about a train next time”
This is my call for the BBC to make sure Guy and Mave are back on our screens soon and hopefully this time in something with a locomotive taste to it!
So what were your favourite parts from the series then readers? I have to say I was in stitches last night watching the boys try their hand at some baking, I’ve never seen anyone try to whisk an egg so unsuccessfully before!
Anyway I’ll leave you with this parting shot of Guy and Mave chilling out on their boat in the snow after their succesful boat launch party.
