The BBC bios of the contestants.
BBC page for the show with links to watch it in the UK.
The full episodes are also on YouTube for those of us outside the UK.
An A-line skirt in 3.5 hours in an user-friendly fabric should be doable, but a fly front men's trouser in 4 hours? Really? Does the skill, time and effort scale?
One of the great things I notice about people who make stuff is that they are generally nice and likable people. There are no villains and it was sad to see contestants sent off at the end of each episode.
The challenges didn't show off the skills of Mark, who was sent home after the 2nd episode. The steampunk costumes he sews for himself are incredible. Who wouldn't have a soft spot for a guy who says, honestly and unironically, that he enjoys evenings sewing in the living room next to his wife, each of them at their own sewing machines, with the telly on?
82 year old Ann is the favorite to win. I like this tweet.
This old woman shouldn't be allowed on The Great British Sewing Bee, she's obviously going to win #oldpeoplearegoodateverything #unfairI really like the hashtag, #oldpeoplearegoodateverything.
