Yes, it was a bit.
a shame, cos it featured me place of work n everything! most disappointing
Third series is in the works.
Series 3, Detectorists - BBC Four
This has been one of my favourite new programmes and I’m glad to see series 3. Though sad to read this is the last!
I fucking love this series. Something about its gentle, late summer, melancholic reflectiveness brings on full blown hiraeth for me every time.
Embarrassingly, I have done the countdown thing when detecting on the Thames.
Really enjoyed this, The Unthanks music fitted perfectly.
I still love the theme music. Disappointingly, it seems to be the best thing Johnny Flynn has done by a country mile.
I was in bits when it started up. That song gets me at the best of time and I may be a little hormonal this week
Just realised Becky's mum, played by Diana Rigg, is Rachel Stirling's actual mum in real life
They’ve appeared together before in an episode of Dr Who. Works well.
Love this, it's perfect.
Not just the humour, acting, pace, timing and writing, but it captures the essence of the subject too. His frustrations at the realities of working in archaeology are painfully realistic. That's never been captured on TV before.
Another top episode last night. Metal detecting with Linda Lusardi
That, the low-speed over-taking manoeuvre and the app gag from the previous episode are certainly highlights so far. Some very clever stuff going on in the writing.
Hope there's a Christmas special - for at least one decent thing to watch in between all the festive dross. Like finding gold...
Or the Holy Grail.
Keep up fella.
This is a fantastic show. I hope iplayer puts up seasons 1 & 2 though. I want to see it all.
There's also a christmas special after 2. It's all excellent. Netflix has them all (christmas special is series 2 episode 7), hopefully iplayer puts them up too.
Of course you all know Sophie Thompson
Is the sister of Emma Thompson.
...and while I'm here..Toni, Lances girlfriend is Beverley Callard daughter.
Never really thought I would like this, but there really is something about it
watched a few episodes when it come out, did not think much of it, but have
changed my mind.
Yes! Brilliant, thanks.
I've decided that this is my favourite TV show of all time.
Because of Andy I have rediscovered the word 'hapless'.
Absolutely fantastic. So good I welled up a couple of times. A lovely way to finish the series.
Nice to see them making friends with Simon and Garfunkel too.
And the look Terry gave Sheila.
