I must admit, that "Danny Dyer" episode almost totally put me off the programme for ever! I'd no idea before I watched it, who in earth he was, and after I'd watched it was quite certain that I didn't care for him, nor have the slightest interest in him!
I've recorded the first in this series to watch, if not, I'd look on I-player, frostyknight.

I agree with you about the Danny Dyer programme. Unfortunately I can't watch on iplayer as I'm not in the UK. (Dublin). Hope it'll be repeated at some stage.

Loved this episode. Didn't really know much about Josh ( I know he's been on comedy panel shows but haven't watched them)  - but I really took to him and loved his reactions.
A fab start to the new series.

Looby :)

Yes, I watched it and really thought it "worked". So many recent ones have merely explored very immediate ancestors for subjects - and this WAS a great contrast to the dreadful Dyer one!

This might get yanked soon, so watch it quick...

Thank you so much for this cuffie81. It never occurred to me to check YouTube. I've just watched it and really enjoyed it. What an interesting programme, definitely one of the best episodes in my opinion.

Ah, not thought of that. Sorry.

No worries TY. Rootschatters are an international bunch, not possible to remember where everyone comes from. :)

I've not watched for a few series, but caught up with this today. His reaction when he read the plaque in westminster was the same as i had watching it. One of the best episodes I've seen.

I hadn't got round to watching the beginning of the episode on i-player so thanks to the link I watched it on You Tube.

I didn't know Josh's surname.

Josh and my OH might be related  :o

They both share the Hannaford & Widdicombe surnames.  Common names around the moor though.

Shame they didn't investigate that side of the family.  I expect they did but it wasn't anywhere near as interesting.
