Edd was the show for me...I could do without Mike's loud, over enthusiastic, style...I still like the cars, so maybe...

If Ant is what we see in the 2nd video, I could be convinced to watch.

If it's just Mike and Ant playing a more mechanically minded Mike, meh.

They got rid of the wrong guy. smile

About the only show I enjoy watching reruns. I wonder why Edd left in the first place? I doubt the show would want to get rid of him unless he wanted too much money. Some of the reruns go back to 2009 so a pretty good run.

I think we hashed it out here before. I think they wanted less of the in shop stuff, as it was harder to film. Lots of filming for little final product.

I don't think it was money, but differences in how they each thought the program should be.

Edd China's Statement

Unfortunately, on Velocity’s first attempt at producing the show they found Wheeler Dealers “too difficult to make”, “at least in its current format.”

In particular, the detailed and in depth coverage of my fixes in the workshop; what I consider to be the backbone and USP of the programme, are something Velocity feel should be reduced. The workshop jobs are certainly the hardest part of the show to make and reducing their substance and role in the show will save the production considerable time, effort and therefore money.

However, this new direction is not something I am comfortable with as I feel the corners I was being asked to cut compromised the quality of my work and would erode my integrity as well as that of the show, so I have come to the conclusion that my only option is to let Velocity get on with it, without me.

I will of course check the new format out but, hold little hope that it will be a goto show for me. Ed

Edd was the reason I watched it, the shop part was really great. Unfortunate.

Edd was the reason I watched the show. Mike was a lot of background noise.

I often find myself fast forwarding past the Mike Brewer segments when he is alone on screen.

Ant is very good, i have watched some of his other programmes.

And seen the early Land Rover he rebuilt first hand and it really looked great.

He also used to be a Police Officer. And not a run of the mill Copper either he was Armed, and the Armed Police in the UK have more in common with SWAT teams in the US than anything else.

If there is no Ed, then I don't watch. Don't know if it's me or what, it just seems that Velocity has gone downhill lately. Maybe because it's the summer time and nothing is really interesting right now.

Same here as well. Couldn't even watch the clips above. Can't think of any other shows that appeal to me on that channel either. I may watch the new show if I channel surf and can't find anything else. The only reason I've some old shows a few times is to learn from what Edd is doing.

Without Edd, the Velocity channel had better be prepared for worse TV ratings.
