Quick question though – do we know who the ‘fourth’ was during the night time stakeout/bust (with Peter and the plane) from last series??
The fourth was the mayor (he of lost chain of office fame that Russ and Hugh found that got them the permission to dig there), it was his land they were digging on.
It’s one of the highlights of the telly week 😀Posted 2 months agoburtMember
Came across about 30 guys all at the edge of a freshly ploughed field last Sunday. I thought they were a bunch of the local Bird Murdering Toffs from afar. Turns out they were detectorists. For some reason I just blurted out ‘Lance’ as I got to where they had set up the finds table. Got at least 5 dirty looks.Posted 2 months ago

Love the cinematography and music. The attention to detail is brilliant but the new Sophie is awful, her accent is all over the place,more Irish than West Country.
I think you’re confusing Sophie from the previous 2 series with Kate, who is Lance’s daughter.Posted 2 months agoversesSubscriber
I really enjoy this show. The BBC has a knack for commissioning/picking up little gems and this is certainly one of them.
Another one I really enjoyed, which I thought had a similar feel to Detectorists, was Jennifer Saunders’ Jam and Jerusalem. Thought it was a shame when that got axed.Posted 2 months ago
I watched Series 1 & 2 again over the weekend including the Christmas special and completely forgot about Andy and Becky going to Botswana and Toni coming into it.
So many great moments remembered though and I have to say there were a lot more great Lance and Andy conversations in the previous two series than there seems to be in this one. I’m not sure if Mackenzie is trying to develop other characters more but the current series is poorer for it in my opinion.Posted 2 months agoTeetosugarsSubscriber
If series 1 had all been like this there wouldn’t have been a series 2.
Yup, with you on that, I still think its the best thing on telly, but it does seem to be not as good as the first and second series..
There are glimpses of what it was, it just falls short of the mark.
Having said that, the DVD has been pre-ordered.. 😆Posted 2 months agoRo5eyMember
Its’ another thank you to STW …. Im new to this excellent show and have only seen season 3.
Just love it’s slow pace, British summer time, birds tweeting, character empathy and the subtle funnies…. I find it wonderfully relaxing, I can almost feel my heart rate lower.
And it sounds as if I’ve got better to come by going back to 1 and 2
Im going to ration myself to 1 a week and that will hopefully see me through these dark days of winter.Posted 2 months agosomafunkSubscriber
“Steve……Can i find a safe home for this?”
“Wot’s that?, A porcupine?”
“Porcupine?…..Are you serious?, it’s a hedgehog”
“I thought hedgehogs were flat”
“Squashed dead ones are flat……live ones are ……..spherical”
And that is why we have brexit in nutshell imho
Sorry……couldn’t resist but i now feel ashamed for polluting a thread about one of the finest BBC programs ever.Posted 2 months ago
