Weed it and Reap

Could the BBC not afford Benny from Crossroads?

The Sock is declaring a period of mourning until she comes to terms with the news.

I really did hope it was going to be Matthew Wilson. Not just because he's eye candy but he always comes across well and knows his stuff. To be honest though the way it is at the moment I wouldn't have wished it on him or anyone else worth their salt. I just felt if it had been MW then they might have bought some intelligence to the programme and possibly had some influence over the production.

To be honest although Toby Buckland is probably a nice enough bloke his TV pedigree doesn't make me hold out great hopes for anything but GW lite.

I've always enjoyed reading Toby Buckland's stuff in Kitchen Garden magazine.

However, I don't think he's sufficiently 'different' from Joe Swift in terms of background, interests and 'viewer appeal'.

I'm prepared to wait and see how it turns out, but if it'd had been MW announced, I would now be jumping up and down with delight rather than feeling neutral.

Not only is he not sufficiently different to Joe, if you put his head on the other way up he would actually BE Joe!

Hmm - I might just go and do that!
