Summary

Review

The car restoration programme is a genre particularly beloved of channels nestled far down the electronic programme guide. Yet while this new series broadly fits the bill, with plenty of blokes cooing appreciatively over engine blocks, it’s really more of a gentle observational documentary about the Mathewsons classic car auctioneers in Thornton le Dale, North Yorkshire. Headed by patriarch Derek, the firm is staffed by family members all the way down to 11-year-old Charlie.

Film of their work is interspersed with the slight grumbles typical of all families, which is hardly riveting – but then Derek finds a rare, dilapidated 1960s Mini Cooper S crumbling in a garage and the excitement builds to an astonishing auction.
