So why is it so good? Well, it’s visually absolutely stunning. Whoever chose the route of the pilgrimage was no fool. If you started off an atheist, you could finish the walk believing in a divine power just on the basis of the rolling hills and endless horizons on view. And it’s funny (Byrne and Morrissey are particularly good value) and deeply touching (thanks in no small part to McGee, who genuinely seems as lovely as the landscapes). But it also offers real food for thought. There’s discussion of faith, or lack of it, of people’s philosophies, of history, of culture, of life. And you don’t get that with celebrity sheep herding.
