TV Review: Detectorists, BBC4

As low-key comedies go this is so low it is almost buried underground. Which is appropriate, because Detectorists is all about digging. Mackenzie Crook plays Andy and Toby Jones plays Lance, two treasure hunters looking for a big find in the Essex countryside, but usually unearthing ring pulls and foil biscuit wrappers.
