My dad mentioned this series, and I didn’t give it much thought, because describing it doesn’t do it justice. As it’s basically about 2 guys who go metal detecting in the countryside. It’s written, directed by and stars Mackenzie Crook. It also stars Toby Jones. Who I only just found out does the voice of Dobby in Harry Potter o___o;. But I knew Jones from Doctor Who, Captain America, Hunger Games, Finding Neverland(perfect as Smeeee) and The Mist, which I must rewatch sometimes. Mackenzie Crook I knew from POTC, Almost Human, lotsa stuff. He’s cool. He’s oddly charming in Detectorists.
There are 4 episodes out, aired on BBC4. I watched the first episode because I was bored. But it was nice, so I watched another. And another, and another. Till there was no more to watch. I agree with my dad, that Andy’s girlfriend is a bitch. Lance is slimy and creepy, until the episode where he sings his song with Andy. That was nice/sad. And he’s totally being used by his bitch ex-wife too.
The story revolves mostly around Andy and Lance going out and looking for finds, including the body of the Saxon king, waging a war against a rival detectorists club. And Andy’s home life with his less than lovely long term girlfriend. And then a new girl joins their club.
