We begin with Ruth and Tony, who have pulled down their crumbling Shropshire farmhouse and are planning to erect an ambitiously designed new one. There are probably a few cheap decor hints for keen home-improvers, but generally this glosses over the extreme financial risk that the couple are taking in favour of some exaggerated TV jeopardy and cheery resolution.
It also sees Piers spend what feels like half of the episode persuading Ruth that what she wants her house to look like isn’t close enough to what he, Piers Taylor, thinks she should want her house to look like. Which is probably only half as aggravating to watch as it must have been for Ruth to experience, but pretty annoying all the same.
