    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.

    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 :oops::D

    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.

    BlueSquareThing With chips

    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.

    Dr. Furface One small step for man

    Hope there's a Christmas special - for at least one decent thing to watch in between all the festive dross. Like finding gold...

    D'wards I'm an excellent driver

    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.
