I always see posts about Derek Acorah on here but have really never heard anyone's views on David Wells. I enjoy the shows with David on them so much more than anyone else that I have seen & I don't know if it's just me or does he seem more "real" with his gifts? For some reason when I watch him it seems like he is really more in tuned to what he is doing than the others. Maybe it's because he isn't so "out there" with it like some of the others. I don't know, I just wanted to get some other opinions on him. What do ya'll think?

I like David Wells too. Definitely seems less concerned with playing to the cameras, and more focused on simply reading a place.

I've never seen this David Wells since I stopped watching Most Haunted. One good thing to note is that his website doesn't tell you what credit cards he accepts on the front page, like Derek's site. Wells doesn't even seem to be promoting or hocking anything; that's usually a dead giveaway for the phony psychics.

I don't know, David Wells is kind of annoying. It seems to me his only 'Gift' is stating the obivious or repeating facts other mediums have already mentioned. And to say he only wants good spirits to posses him? Please give me a break, as if he really has a choice. I have had the pleasure of meeting Derek Acorah before and I have to say he did seem quite genuine. But I do belive that Brian Sheppard, the psychic artist is also incredably talented and has given alot of accurate information he could not have known about before hand.

Ummm....repeating facts mentioned by other mediums? Well, isn't that what is supposed to happen when more than one medium visits the same area with a history of a haunting? Is he supposed to discover a spirit never known by history or other mediums who have visited in the past?

And honestly, in my own opinion, based on everything I have ever read or been told regarding mediumship, if a medium knows what they are doing, they can indeed prevent any spirit, good or bad, from taking them over if they so choose.

So I really fail to see how these points mark David, or any other medium who matches them, as somehow less genuine. And frankly, he's a thousand times less annoying than Derek's constant 'possessions', which at times went flying directly into the realm of the absurd.

I dont think you can say one is better than the other when it comes to being a medium (if such gifts actually exist). Of course David Wells can seem more believable than Derek. All he has to to is read all the negative stuff about Derek in the media (including the posts on this site) and just produce an act, oops sorry I mean mediumship which fits the publics idea of believable.

David Wells can see what the public dont like about Derek i.e hamming it up, and rectify that by not hamming it up in his act, sorry mediumship. The result the viewers find him more believable. Simple really.

Both are entertainers i'll just enjoy the show for that.

Or, on the other hand, perhaps 'hamming it up' has never been part of David Wells' 'act, oops, mediumship'.

all i think is i'm over derrek, and like how david handles himself, there was one episode where two med' where in the room(david and the tall guy, bald ,can't remember his name.) and it did seem like they where feeding off each other,thats the only thing i don't like is when two of them are in the same room and get the same thing and ask each other about it. i don't know if i'm making any sence i'm really dizzy from the computer screen , i think i'm sick :).

What I said was my opinion, And know matter how good a medium anyone is if there is a spirit determined enough to enter someone's aura they're going to put up a fight, and that's bound to zap anyones energy. All David Wells does is have a little whine about how he is'nt going to let this evil horrible presence in, which last about 5 seconds then he says that the spirit understsands him and won't bother him again. BULLBAD_WORD either he's bigging the spirit up. pretending its more harmful than it really is or he's just putting it on. Like I said, my opinion, heaps of people in this thread seem to like David better so theres nothing to get upset about

Well said Vamp! :clap:

I agree totally with you! Can you believe it!?! LOL I think David's geniuness has come across since the very first show he was presented in.


Dark Spirit I don't understand what you are saying in your comment about him "bigging" the spirit up? What do you mean by that?

Deep breath.

I was not upset, just did not agree with your assessment, nor with what you backed up your assessment with.

Besides, in all the time I have watched Most Haunted, and that's from Show Number 1, David does not do as you describe...'whine'...every single episode about some "evil horrible presence". Derek, however, sensed an evil entity constantly towards the end, usually associated with 'the black arts' (which drove me up the wall)

And since this is a discussion forum, you have to expect a mild challenge now and again, or someone who disagrees with you stating that they do and why.

Whatever, you think david is better than Derek and I think Derek is better than David but if you go back to my first post, you will see that I said I though Brian Shepard was more gifted than both of them. At least he provides physical evidence to his mediumship.
