Homes Under the Hammer Comments

Martin
Fed up with his hesitant way of speaking as if he almost forgets what he is about to say. I think the presenters need to be more upbeat. It is same old and getting boring and the background music.....ridiculous and so unecessary imo.

Unbelievable
I cant believe the purchasers install new kitchens hens and bathrooms for 6k or less and refurb whole property. e.g. huh 12.09.18 Also, please spend a bit more time showing end result, rather than repeating stuff already shown.

l agree
l agree with mike m, Martine Maxwell, is worse than Dion the way she stands there waving her arms like a windmill, and her awful accent, and is she paid to wear those weird coats, Now that's shes expecting, lets hope she takes an early leave, and stays at home with the kid until its a teenager, Bring Lucy back,at least she is a likeable person

Marine Maxwell
Well Marine Maxwell,is pregnant, that's good news, it means she will not be appearing on future shows for some time, that is unless she brings the new born , to the show with her, the show will be much better without her, and lets hope Dion gets the boot, and why do they repeat parts of the show we have already seen, its typical of the BBC, making 30 minutes viewing last an hour

Disappointed
Watched the new series of Homes under Hammer, What have they done,it is so boring,long winded.the two presenter don’t suit the program. If it’s not broke don’t mend it. Please let’s go back to the original presentation.
Rosie 9:36am Fri 17 Aug

All homes here are not as HUTH. All homes in NZ are not big and beautiful. I know it! As for nitpick well..... you do well!

Homes Under the Hammer
here in NZ we watch it, I like the presenters, people really nitpick about them like this? Sheesh. WHat we find though is it's (mostly) horrific. Such tiny rooms, while the voiceover says such a big room...lol. Washers in kitchens, shudder...where do you put your actual washing baskets? Your cleaning products? Loos in bathrooms, and so close to sinks etc!! OMG! Gross. Loos upstairs....so all day long you must climb the stairs to er...P? No wonder the hospital program is full of people who have fallen. And doors opening on to the street, no garages.....No gardens...or a garden quoted in feet measurements....why, does it sound better than say 1/40th acre or 200sqm?
pctek 8:12pm Tue 22 May
 
   
Marine Maxwell - the weak
Following Lucy Alexander leaving couldn't the programme makers found a better replacement than Martin Maxwell? He voice is flat, lacks pace and intonatation and there is little os no enthusiasm. This morning's intro was as usual uninspiring

DD
is actually a property landlord like a lot of footballlers. So he must know a thing or two!
lila 11:05pm Thu 22 Mar
 
   
Dion Dublin
Why does Dion always have is hands in is pocket? what is wrong with him, it is so unprofessional , he should keep to football, Not this programme, he knows nothing about buildings?
Bal 10:40am Thu 22 Mar
 
   
How go they do it
i recently asked four jobsworth for a quote, on moving a studded wall in the ensuite, back one metre, and installing a larger shower, and tiling of the new wall, the quotes ranged from £7.500 to £8.900, Yet on homes under the hammer, buyers can buy a derelict house, fit it with new kitchen, double Glazing, a new ensuite, replaster, re carpet, rewire, fit central heating, and dedcorate throughout, and all under £15.000 , Please supply the names of these contractors, lm fed up of dealing with cowboys
MIKE M 6:23pm Wed 21 Mar
 
   
Martin
Appearances are deceptive. Have you seen the house he lives in?
lila 9:04pm Tue 20 Mar
 
   
Down and out tramp martin
Has Martin looked in the mirror lately, he looks like an unwashed tramp, is his next job, sitting outside banks and shopping centres begging, cos he looks the part, buy a razor, and get cleaned up, and, please get rid of that Scottish presenter and Dion, they are ,like you turning viewers away from Homes under the Hammer, lf l was your employer,, l would not let you appear on a programme until you have cleaned yourself up, when l see you, l am sure l can smell body odour through being unwashed,
mike m 8:13pm Tue 20 Mar
 
   
Martin with a beard !!
Oh dear , what on earth has Martin done to himself. He now looks like an old tramp and has lost his charm.Is it because he is too lazy to shave? Whoever brought back the beard craze does no one any favours . Get rid of it Martin .!!!
Hammer fan , but no beards allowed. 6:41pm Thu 8 Mar
 
   
DION OUT
Dan McGolpin, listen to your audience !!! Of the fifty postings listed below, not one positive comment about “ Wooden Dion “. He is not for this daytime program. Does anyone know if Wooden has received a red card ?
Broomy 10:41am Thu 8 Feb
 
   
Accent
l , enJoy this programme, but l cannot stand the accent from the female presenter, Maxwell, she may be nice to look at, but thats about it, let her go, and take wooden Dion with her,
MIKEM 11:04am Thu 18 Jan
 
   
Stop the Music please
Why do you have to have this ear blasting music.....please stop it. We have stopped watching because of it. It's not necessary....
Claudia 10:33am Tue 5 Dec
 
   
Music
Why the ridiculous music? Its unbearable and for me makes the program unwatchable.
BasingRich 7:34pm Sun 26 Nov
 
   
Homes under the hammer
Please get rid if woodentop Dion Dublin......he seems to state the obvious and is definitely NOT convincing....hate his contribution
Ladymerle 10:11am Tue 14 Nov
 
   
Not again
They only feature three properties and almost always they return to one unfinished nowadays. It is very disappointing not to see the period property in its final glory. Instead you get the incredibly boring same old kitchen/bathroom non-descript ones . Time for a shake up to keep us interested I think.
reuben 10:59am Thu 2 Nov
 
   
Lucy
Can't believe BBC let Lucy go she made that programme should have been last in first out (Dion) then the BBC should have given her Dion's pay HUTH is not the same & with Martyn being so condescending to the buyers & with Dion only a footballer hopefully it won't last much longer
Olaf 9:55am Mon 18 Sep
 
   
DION OUT
Yes I know it's repeats, but I can't believe we are now into the second week of NO DION !!!! Keep up the good work Dan McGolpin.
Broomy 12:11pm Tue 1 Aug
 
   
Most irritating by far
1) New owners "We don't know what we are going to get".....fgsl 2) Martyn "In need of wallpaper and a lick of paint".....you don't say!
georgie 10:09am Mon 24 Jul
 
   
Good show , but please no daft music
This is a good program I like seeing the end result, presenters good but it's really cheesy with the certain songs so predictable and annoying
Trish 10:50am Fri 14 Jul
 
   
Lucy
Not forgetting the cheap poly (nylon) carpets rough as a badger's a..se!
georgie 11:29am Tue 9 May
 
   
Lucy.
And now she advertises that 50s /60s /70s horror LINO. Oh the cold feet!
60s child. 8:31am Tue 9 May
 
   
Lucy
Glad she has gone. Why does she think the buyer takes on her ideas when they are patently obvious and why does she keep nodding her head in fake interest while they are telling their story?? Shock, horror but I prefer Dion!!
georgie 10:57am Mon 8 May
 
   
Even Worse!
Do you hate your own show Producer? First the limited Dion Dublin, then you let the gorgeous Lucy go. Now, what idiot decided to play background sales commentary? An "experiment" too far!
SunbirdD 10:49am Tue 2 May
 
   
They're all the same
Homes isn't spoiled by DD.. It's spoiled because every programme now shows thre e potentially interesting houses.. Bought at Auction.. Stripped out by unimaginative people.. Who make them All The Same!!! Every show.. Same kitchen, same fireplace, same paintwork. Oh and they make sure they remove anything interesting that might give them character!!!!
Freda 11:12pm Sun 30 Apr
 
   
Give Dion Red Card
i have watched HUTH since its conception. I liked Martin and Lucy. They were a good team and knew what they were talking about. Unfortunately, since Dion has joined the fold, I turn over when he is on. I cannot stand him. He has absolutely no charisma whatsoever. The idiot who signed him up to the programme needs to be sacked. Dion is uninformed, repeats himself and has zero personality. As a footballer he was probably fine. As a television presenter he needs permanently relegating to the benches. Now Lucy has gone it has lost its sparkle. Get Lucy back and ditch the Dion.
Leela 10:33am Thu 23 Mar
 
   
longtime fan
I've been a fan of Homes under the hammer for many years but am getting really tired of repeats especially when it's the third sometimes fourth time of watching it's a bit too much
Dora 11:03am Wed 1 Feb
 
   
If
I bet,if the idiots responsible for letting our favourite shows be spoiled,allow HUTH to go,Channel 4 will snap it up,take Martin,ditch Dion,and get a woman on the prog. who is popular with the viewers.
Lizzie 12:52pm Fri 16 Dec
 
   
DION OUT
Dan McGoplin, Controller of BBC Daytime said on The Barb on the 26th April that one of the qualities needed to be a good commissioner is - audience empathy !! The definition being - the ability to understand and share the feelings of others. Over 85% of the comments listed below relates to " Woodens " inability to hold an audience. No amount of training, after 19 months in the job, will make him an acceptable presenter for this day time program. Dan McGolpin you need to listen to your audience!!
Broomy 10:39am Tue 1 Nov
 
   
Interior designer??
The woman paid to do up the property would not be able to renovate a dog kennel imo. The buyer was robbed although he/she did make some changes in the end, Always best to do it yourself or project manage it at least.
once more 11:03am Wed 21 Sep
 
   
Ditch Dion
What can be done to save my favourite property programme, Homes Under The Hammer? Dion Dublin is only comfortable talking about football. We need someone in it that will give us confidence in their knowledge of the property and he most definately does not! Even worse is the news is that Lucy is now leaving. Will Martin be able to hold it together on his own. My friends have already abandoned it. The BBC are renowned for not listening to the public but for once please have some sense and save it!
Hammer Geek 11:09am Mon 19 Sep
 
   
The BBC never listen
They wouldn't need to scrap it,if they got someone decent to do the job alongside Martin.It's unwatchable for me in it's present state
Lizzie 12:24am Fri 2 Sep
 
   
Lucy
Went to front Carpetright. She never got anywherr presenting Homes Under The Hammer after 11 years anyway Dion is doing fine imo. Beware the criticism as the show will be in danger of being scrapped.
once more 11:36pm Thu 1 Sep
 
   
wooden
Have you read how much they paid to train him for hones u.t h. Though. Ridiculous
sick of the con 9:39pm Thu 1 Sep
 
   
DION OUT
If WOODEN mentions that he played for Manchester United once more I'm going to scream!!!! Twelve appearances in two years is nothing to crow about. A free transfer by the Beeb now would ensure the crowds return.
Broomy 10:51am Wed 31 Aug
 
   
Gone ?
Has DD gone or are they putting kld shows on. Ive spotted a couple this week where he's absent so have watched them. ill turn off again if he reappears
Cautious 9:26am Fri 12 Aug
 
   
Time to have a make over
Dion Dublin does nothing for the show. His presentations completely lack conviction. Add Lucy' departure to this scenario and it further reduces the show's impact. Time for a dramatic make over!
Sringclean 10:12am Tue 9 Aug
 
   
Now Lucy is going
Ever since Dion Dublin got on,Homes under the hammer has developed dry rot.Now Lucy is leaving,it won't be long before the whole show falls down.
Lizzie 3:37pm Thu 14 Jul
 
   
Keep it ip
The one and only lucy and martin fan club yeeaa.. Oops forgot dionne
ex member 4:48pm Sun 10 Jul
 
   
Keep up!
Martin has been on other things. Does not mean he is leaving does it? Lucy was on telling us about her NHS experience with her young daughter. She has slso has something new coming up. As she has said her leaving was not what she wanted.
once more 12:59pm Sun 10 Jul
 
   
keep up !
Tut tut keep up. She has already been on another weekly programme
Twice more 12:21pm Sun 10 Jul
 
   
Lucy
Is going before she is pushed, in a manner of speaking , due to the BBC cutbacks. She most probably has something else in the pipe line..
once more 8:23pm Tue 5 Jul
 
   
Lucy Alexander Shock Exit
Lucy Alexander is leaving the show after 13 years, cant believe she is leaving after 13 years on the show. Who else is mad.
Lucia 8:09pm Tue 5 Jul
