- PSA Return of ….The Detectorists BBC4 at 10pm on Thursday
Just caught up with series one on the Iplayer – some of the best writing I’ve seen in a long time. Gentle, but with enough zest and humour to make it a joy to watch.
Finished series 1 on the iPlayer last night.

I too feared it wouldn’t be as good, and it wasn’t quite as good. Given that, I’d happily have watched the next five episodes back to back because when the new characters, situations and story strands get up and running it’s going to be wonderful telly. (I recently watched all of series 1 back to back on a long flight and it was the shortest three hours of the entire journey.)
I think it’s manoeuvring for a third or fourth series whereas I was expecting a six episode resolution to the Bishop’s Farm story. Which is why I’m not a writer / film maker I guess!
Pearce Quigley (Russell) is still stealing every scene he’s in, Sheila still as fantastically bonkers, and Varde just as silent. And far and away the best theme tune of any TV series ever. It fits perfectly, and gives me goosebumps.
Can’t wait for next week.Posted 4 years ago
