Why? What couldn't you believe? Maggie is a brilliant scientist and great TV personality. Good choice!

Sir Patrick was a little eccentric and I think Maggie is too, she has an excitement and Passion and is also in touch with the younger audience my daughter has heard of her so that's a big yes for me.

The show carries on and that's all that matters

I have to admit (and I've said so before) that I find her on-screen style a bit irritating in the documentaries I've seen, but perhaps the different format will suit her better.  Can't fault the choice in terms of enthusiasm for the topic though.  I wonder why they felt the need for an additional presenter?  Perhaps Lucie Green wants to take more of a back seat or wasn't considered engaging enough?  I do hope not; I enjoy the parts of the programme she's presented.

I really like Maggie. Great choice.

You have to remember the Sky at Night is the front gate for many adults and children who have a burgeoning interest in astronomy. Enthusiastic, charismatic presenters with a considerable amount of cerebral matter compared to others, is a must.

With the amount of quality programming the BBC are offering though factual documentaries (Have been watching the Pilgrim series and I am really enjoying it), they seem to be on the ball at the moment.

I think we need to give her a chance before demanding a replacement!

She obviously has a lot of knowledge, passion and enthusiasm for the subject and this can only be a good thing. I warmed to the last presenters so I hope that the new combination will manage to entice new watchers as well as stimulating the previous ones. I am looking forward to February (but still wishing it was on in January.....)

I find her informative and interesting - just mildly irritating in style but tollerable. If they'd given us eye candy I would have missed half the content lol.

On balance - it's the info that's important - I can always watch Strictly for the eye candy and have the best of both worlds. :grin:

(Heaven forfend if Keith Lemon ever came near the show)

I found her defence in needing to keep the Sky at Night, when losing it was a possibility, very weak.

She doesn't seem sharp enough for me.

Better that though than losing TSAN although i hope she doesn't put veiwers off giving the BBC justification to stop the program due to poor viewing figures.

Forgive my ignorance but I'd never heard of her... So I googled her (as you do) she seems OK. In fact if you watch this http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tMAC0ZZxZC4 about 2/3 through she talks about grinding her own mirror, you can almost see a black female Patrick Moore :-)

I like her!

+ Another... I think she's a great addition.

Looking forward to her input.

Is there a signed version of SAN?

I will have to switch to that!

I don't care what she looks like, whether eye-candy or whatever.... it is her style of delivery that is not bearable.

There is no choice but to listen ... close your eyes if you want, you have to listen.... and this presenter has me reaching for the channel change button wherever I encounter her dreadful staccato delivery.

Good choice, I think that she has a spirited and bubbly personality and I found her to be quite engaging in the 'Do We Need the Moon' documentary. I think she specialises in lunar science? which of course was a particular passion of Sir Patricks.

Think I will give up on S@N now.

I am getting the feeling that there will be so much meddling that it will go downhill. Unfortunately seen it on other BBC programs that have lost their appeal to people, just have this feeling that this is going to be another.
