That is the big question about Matthew Wilson - not the question about big Matthew Wilson for those of you already confused.
The Sock believes that we need to clear up this question as to whether Matthew should be referred to as Heathcliff or Darcy in future. In the event that Wilson becomes Britain's Next Top Gardener we are going to be stuck with the name for years! Plus there is the matter of the tribute song.
The Sock is coming out in favour of Heathcliff. Whilst Heathcliff of the Hedgerows is a pretty stupid moniker it is better than Darcy of the ..er.. Dingly Dells? Also Matthew's hair is too unruly to be Darcyesque and the Sock can't see him lounging around parlours taking tea and making polite conversation. Darcy wasn't big on the sense of humour front - although come to think of it, Heathcliff wasn't exactly a laugh a minute either.
Readers wishing to post their arguments in favour of one or the other are welcome. Ditherers may wish to wait and see which argument sways them. Feel free to come up with another suitable name and if it seems right it will be added to the poll.
