I have enjoyed every second of it. But I’m glad they have finished the story with enough to go back to for a special episode if they ever wanted to. It’s better than the current trend to keep a series going because it’s popular, not because it is still brilliant.Posted 2 months agoforzafkawiMember
One of the best episodes for ages. It could have gone on for hours as far as I was concerned. The spear point at the start was brilliant!
Christmas Special on Dec 17th but I think it’s just the 2015 repeat.
I’ve got every one of these episodes recorded but I’m sill going to buy the box set. Maybe if they sell enough, Mackenzie will be persuaded to make another series.Posted 2 months agoforzafkawiMember
I have watched this beautiful show from the very first broadcast of the first series. I can’t claim any great insight to how good it was going to be. I hardly knew Mackenzie Crook as I never got into The Office and thought Pirates of the Carribean was childish nonsense after suffering the first film.
Toby Jones is one of my favourite actors though which is what piqued my interest into why he would appear in such a strange (on paper) plotline. It was obvious though from the first few minutes of Epiosde 1 that this was going to be something special.
Andy: ****-all. Three shotgun caps and a Blakey
Andy: What you got?
Lance: Ring-pull, ’83, Tizer.
Andy: What d’you do wth ’em?
Lance: Bag ’em up, stick ’em on eBay. People buy this shit.
Andy: Sad tits.
Lance: You said it.
Cue theme tune. Sublime.Posted 2 months agomickyfinnMember
Utterly wonderful TV. What’s really sad is that shows of this quality are now a niche. The majority of the people I work with don’t get it or find it slow and unfunny. It’s quite sad but makes me thankful we have people who will still write and fund shows of this quality.Posted 2 months agoDezBSubscriber

Hmm… maybe that’s why they added the naff, “standard” comedy to the previous 2 episodes, to make it more popular..? Never mind now, it redeemed itself with the last one. Hope it doesn’t come back, ending on a high is bestest.Posted 2 months agobinnersSubscriber
Can I just ask, have you all watched Early Doors? Another firm favourite of a show where absolutely nothing happens. Just people sat in the pub, but the dialogue is so beautifully written, the acting so good, the characters so likeable and well developed, and the humour so gentle, its just wonderful to watch

My favourite TV programme ever, ever, ever. This series may not have hit the soaring heights of the previous two but I guess that’s what comes with tying everything up. As close to perfection for me as I’ve found in a TV programme. Proper feel good telly. Makes me want to buy a Minelab Quattro MP off Gumtree and join the DMDC. I’ll second Binners’ suggestion of Early Doors for those who haven’t seen it.Posted 2 months ago
