Golden Era For Sitcoms?

Writer, director and star Mackenzie Crook has said that this is the last series of Detectorists. If that's the case it will be a great shame. There really is nothing like it on television at the moment. In an era of hard-faced, smug, knowing comedy this lovely series following the countryside lives of a group of metal detecting enthusiasts and co-starring Toby Jones is a shining beacon of uncynical, gentle humour.

Were you asking when Detectorists is back on?

Well, you've come to the right place.

TV Review: Detectorists Christmas Special, BBC4

Not much in the way of tinsel in this seasonal special, but there is definitely something shiny. It’s the Anglo-Saxon treasure that Lance has unearthed. At the start of this welcome extra episode it is on display in the British Museum. But the find appears to have come with strings attached. Has Lance fallen victim to ‘the curse of the gold’?


TV, Detectorists, BBC4

The Danebury Metal Detecting Club is back and this time it’s serious. Well, not completely serious. Mackenzie Crook’s countryside sitcom was one of the most subtle, slow-burn comedies to pop up in recent years. There are no big laughs here, but lots of gently comic character studies to keep you hooked.
