Or do I make an appointment and pay a fortune and definitely get it in a week?

What do you think?

I used check and send and DS's passport came back within the week. I was amazed.

However, you now need to factor in post office strikes!

When are the strikes?

I've never had a problem with the check and send via the post office. Turn around is usually 2 weeks.

Our passports have all been back in less than two weeks, I didn't even send them check and send.

normally come back in 10 days but make sure your photo is exactly the right size and not touching the white edges otherwise they will send it back,as they did with minehmm
