Interesting that he's leaving TJC. Wonder which channel he'll go to?

Not surprised by this. The channel has changed a lot selling less jewellery and more other stuff. To me it has gone down market and I rarely watch now let alone buy.
I loved his rapid auction shows but they stopped some time ago.
Good luck to him wherever he turns up. I have seen him on the Pavers channel from time to time.Post Thanks / Like - 0 Thanks, 1 Likes

I've seen him on my channel hopping travels the past couple of months on Pavers Shoes Tv, Sky 669. I've also seen that John fella who was on Rocks (or still is I don't know) and funny enough Sheila from IW is often on Pavers too, co presenting as opposed to modelling.

He was a good presenter on Gems several years ago, too, much better than some of the awful ones they have on there now. I'm not surprised he's leaving TJC, it seemed to me that the occasions he presented got fewer and fewer, and he sometimes seemed rather lack-lustre about what he was being asked to sell (with good reason, too). TJC has definitely gone downmarket, and having the Buyers on making "guest appearances" every other minute hasn't helped their credibility. I think Derek Marks has always had other irons in the fire, and he'll probably easily make up the spare time left from working at TJC by his other commitments. Shame, he had good knowledge of the gemstones he was selling, and gave you lots of factual information. Somehow, I don't think he'll be the last 'going over the wall' at TJC.

I am not surprised that Derek has left TJC, had a feeling this has been on the cards for a while now. He hasn't been on the channel as often as he used to, and the odd times he was on, it was either the late shift or the early one. He is by far the best presenter on TJC, and like some of the comments here, I felt, on the odd occasions he has been on the channel, his heart hasn't been in it for a while. TJC has been going downhill for sometime, it used to be my number 1 shopping channel, but I hardly watch it now. Feel sad the way it is going, will miss lovely Derek, but I wish him all the best for the future.
