Touch wood, I haven't had any issues with the docs I buy so far. The last pair I bought in 2016 (just before the price shot up), I wear them every day and walk for miles. This pair I'm just buying as a spare while the price is cheap
That being said I always buy the same ones, 1460 8 eyelet

That story does seem to weigh more on anecdote then evidence. Lots of "One reader said" rather than some shop refusing to sell them or similar
A guy on youtube has cut up 3 pairs. The Made In England pair, a Vintage pair and a pair made overseas. Big differences between the 3, the vintage best quality, then Made in England and the worst being the pair made overseas. Personally, I have worn a pair for work for well over a year and no problems with them. But, others clearly have. The recomendation for a different british boot, made by a company that used to make DM's is either in that article or the comments. The same guy cut up a pair of those and they were superior quality. Cant recall the name tho
Bought a couple of pairs 2 years ago, they went straight back, the leather was really thin and weird, like an mdf version of leather. Felt stiff and cardboard like. I wore them around the house for a bit but they just never felt like they were going to conform to my feet. There used to be a shop not far from us that sold the UK made ones and they were totally different, the leather looked and felt so much nicer.

So, another anecdotal criticism, but the shop was a branch of "Sole Trader" and they didn't sell the imports. In the end I didn't get any as the 8's felt a bit too tight and the 9's were massive, I really needed a half size, but they don't do it.

I bought some original grafters instead of Dr Martens. These took me back some 30 years.

Got a link to this?

The other company would be Solovair, but they seem to be very expensive, the cheapest boot is around £170

Posted.

See their other videos for cutting up of other boots.

Solovair is the other UK company that used to make DM's but now make their own, legally different boots, in the same factory using the same machines and processes that used to make DM's when DM's were the standard.
And the Made in England DM's are £179, so equivelent to the solovairs.. airwair...Sol-ov-air...
