IMDB Episode Ratings Between 8.8-9.4/10
I always use Michael Palin and his Travel Logs as my guide to how good these Documentaries are and very few measure up to his standard. Many of the so called celebrities we have had doing this sort of thing fall well below the standard but I am happy to say that James May (Who I like a lot anyway) is up there as one of my favourites now and I look forward to more of his stuff in the future.
MGN Rating 8/10
