Grand Designs Series 11: DVD Review

Grand Designs Series 11: DVD Review

Rating: PG
Released by Roadshow Home Ent

The ever amicable Kevin McCloud returns in another series of Grand Designs as he negotiates the usual perils of Britain's propensity for self builds.

From the restoration of a decaying 1920s cinema in South Yorkshire to revisiting homes in Malaga and Woodbridge, McCloud brings his usual formula to the screen, inspiring those who want to change their homes and those who actually get off their backsides and do it.

There are the predictable perils in the fore; money and time being the worst, but there's also a degree of heart warming sentiment in this series; none more so than in the episode in Tiverton where a former soldier, left with only limb after a bomb blast, is forced to rethink his plans for a new home.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it is the motto which could be applied to this season - but as ever, Grand Designs remains watchable enough fare for a rainy day.
