Slight improvements, major omissions on new House Doctor series
17 March 2005 | by joanne__kingSee all my reviews

This is a new hour long version of the popular British show "House Doctor." Although the show does lend itself to an hour format, this new version suffers greatly from the absence of presenter Alistair Appleton. Ann Maurice has taken over the hosting duties as well as starring. Without the tempering influence of Appleton, Maurice comes off at times as downright nasty, instead of just strict. She also has a very amateur, stilted narration style. The show would benefit from a professional presenter that had some chemistry with the star and with the families involved, as Appleton did.

The addition of a garden expert is a good idea and fills out the hour. I have noticed that the new show seems to skirt around the cost of labour when doing budgets.(A flaw almost inherent in American decorating shows). The previous series was more realistic in their budget summaries.

Has House Doctor seen it's day? Not as long as Brits insist on carpet in the bathroom.
