    They quite often say they're going to do something, then in the next shot, it's been done with no explanation of how...for instance, one of the experts was repairing a grandfather clock and mentioned that the dial should be resilvered using a powdered silvering compound (I've only ever seen liquid silvering solutions). They showed the start of the process, then cut to the finished thing, which wasn't very informative.

    I stopped watching the newer series because of the move away from showing how and increasing the amount of fluffy fill - another series I am fond of "Car SOS" has done the same, latest series shows less of the cars being repaired and more of the presenters swanning around
