For those of us outside the UK and unable to avail ourselves of the BBC IPlayer, it was a couple of days' wait, but I finally found a link that is offering up Episode 1 of Season 2 without a barrage of registration faff.
Great British Sewing Bee Season 2, Episode 1
This competition is broader with ten contestants and a little smoother and more professional in presentation and tone. Claudia is a little less coy, and I liked the challenges. The silk lingerie competition was a tad uncomfortable—all those judges sticking their fingers down models' bare bosoms to see how the cups clung—but truly, Julie's gown was a beaut. No spoiler alerts, but it's a good 'watch' while stitching.
