    She's a stunning looking woman. I bet she's a model, she has that look.

    I rewatched it last night.

    The bit where Terry finds the button and gives the thumbs up to Sheila had me filling up. The look on his face as he looked at her, then around at his surroundings was one of pure happiness and contentment. Lovely.

    I only realised when I rewatched with a friend that the whole Gazebo scene was a pastiche of Witness, the Harrison Ford film.

    Binged S1 & 2. Just starting 3.

    Such a good show. Smiles and shivers in turn.

    Yet, when I try to describe it to recommend it I make it sound pretty boring :D

    There’s a certain genius in that. To make something so genuinely sublime, yet so modest.

    Just finished the final one. To pull off such a feel good bit of television, and play it straight, wow. Great stuff.

    I have watched the last series again over the weekend. Love it, so sublime and and full of genuine, good feeling.

    I have a cousin who is exactly like the character Sheila, we are always expecting the least expected from her.

    Just heard an item on the BBC radio news about a couple of detectorists who thought they had found a haul of Saxon coins worth thousands.

    Only to find out they were fake and left after the filming of the Detectorists :D

    It made me giggle, but I bet they were pissed off.

    The series that continues to make folk smile.
