Dragons Den narrator needs new script writers!

Posted by danblog on September 8, 2008 in General stuff, Ranting |

I am watching dragons den on iPlayer at the moment, and i am noticing how the narrator says almost exactly the same thing every show!


“It takes a brave entrpenur to lock horns with *dragons name*”

“Its all but over for *name*’s pitch”

“Will *dragons name* throw them a lifeline?”

“Its been an emptional session in the den”

“… didn’t hold water with *dragon*”

“…any hope of getting back investment”

“will this *adjective* entrpenur secure that much needed investment?”


Its just boring! I Love dragons den its a great show but need some originallity with the narration!

    I agree – it’s getting tedious.

    One you missed is “Duncan Bannatyne is intrigued with the offer and wants to find out more” or something like that….

    What also gets on my nerves is the dodgy camera shots – they can’t seem to keep the camera still!

  • Dan says:

    Yep so true!

    Just gets boring… although i guess it is like the 3rd series so probably runing dry on ideas…


    Still crackin’ show.

    3rd series?! You obviously aren’t a massive fan! 😛 It’s the 5th or 6th series now! Some of the dragons in the earlier series have left though.

    The Original Ripoff Report Text:
    In 1999 the television company owned by Ziff Davis called techtv was asking for television submissions and I sent two and I never heard from them, However, in 2001 they were advertising my idea as their own! I wrote a little script that I called the Internet Pitch, A.K.A. The Big Idea. The show was played on the web and hosted by Mark Wahlberg. The shows concept was were budding entrepreneurs took their business plans or ideas to investors to win a web package and start up money and a grand prize for a million dollars. Well in 2001 when I learned of this I wrote to the Better Business Bureau and filed a complaint, however, techtv claimed I did not send that idea, however, I absolutely did! I do not know where my idea got stolen, in the mail room or from some damn secretary or a top Executive!!! However, some scum ball stole my concept and used it exactly as I wrote it, never changed a damn thing!!! They used the Original name as well as the Nick name to promote the show. It was my own fault for submitting an idea that I never got protected by a copy write……What really makes me angry is that Sony bought the Idea from ZDNet / Techtv and used it to create American Inventor As well as the Dragons Den and the newly soon to be released version the Sharks Tank. It is nice to know that this scumbags have no problem living high while I have suffered all these years… Ken Paradise, California
