Skinny bloke with glasses and brolly found everywhere in the world? Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a more appropriate picture of Crane.
It seems that I am not alone in this observation, The Telegraph’s Michael Deacon thinks sort of the same thing:
When I say that Nicholas Crane, the presenter of BBC Two’s geography series Town with Nicholas Crane, reminds me of the hero of Where’s Wally?, I don’t mean that I think he is a wally, or that he appears to be lost. It’s just his expression, his demeanour. Like Wally, he has a lanky, awkward innocence about him; and, again like Wally, he somehow manages to appear both cheerful and anxious at the time
I sort of disagree, Crane has that cheerful adventurousness that I imagine Wally having as he journeys all over the world.
At least Crane has better dress sense than Wally.
