Detectorists

Series 2 - Episode 4

Review

It’s crunch time for our Poundland Time Team: Andy (Mackenzie Crook) faces an interview to work in Botswana, while Lance (Toby Jones) is nervous about seeing his long-lost daughter Kate. Neither meeting goes well. The club, meanwhile, makes a breakthrough with its crashed-plane project.

Among many amusing pairings in Detectorists, the timorous, hangdog Andy and his much more driven wife Becky (Rachael Stirling) are a charmingly odd couple. In an episode with a little more drama than comedy, their exchanges – and the trivia-laced banter of the two friends – is golden talk indeed.

Summary

Andy has a job interview and Lance has a lot of catching up to do, so the mystery of the buried bomber is the least of their problems. But then a disturbing possibility emerges from an unlikely source, throwing everything into doubt. Comedy, starring Mackenzie Crook and Toby Jones.
