Series 1 - Episode 6



Before this utterly charming series had even begun, headlines were written about the show belittling metal-detecting. Nothing could be further from the truth. The pastime was more of a peg on which to hang a sitcom about people, a celebration of the rural pace of life. It’s gathered momentum and confidence as it’s gone on, with characters we really care about.

Whether or not the series is recommissioned, the appropriately poetic ending has a “just right” feel to it, and it’s better the more you think about it. For Mackenzie Crook, as star, writer and director, Detectorists has been a quiet but unequivocal triumph.


The police investigate a huge hole that has been excavated, and Larry Bishop's invisible dogs have disappeared. Meanwhile, Andy and Lance have one last chance to pursue their hearts' desires. Comedy, starring Mackenzie Crook and Toby Jones. Last in the series.
