Detectorists - Series 3 - BBC 4 10pm This Wednesday

Recommended Posts

I've been catching these late night at weekends, you can just dip in and still enjoy it.

 

The scene where

  Reveal hidden contents

Lance is talking about his daughter with the lemonade lady (I'm bad with names) implies she had a child that died

is still one of the most wonderful scenes I've ever seen. Incredible acting as well.

 

It's easy to forget in life so many people carry grief and tragedy inside themselves. 

 

I thought it was implied that

she might have had a child pre-marriage and had to give the child away.

 

Stunning acting though, it's so subtle.

Uber late to this, but during a very sedate Hogmanay/New Year I noticed this was on BBC4 at the back of 1am. Watched the first two and was hooked. Now making my way through the lot on I Player. I had always meant to check it out but never got round to it. 

 

A lot of newer comedy doesn't really click with me, but this is classic British underdog understated comedy with a real heart to it. Superbly written characters too.

I noticed Mackenzie Crook used lots of nature shots/landscape sweeps in his Worzel Gummidge adaptation, just as he did in Detectorists.

I think it's better on the second watch for sure, and a third watch on a rainy day sounds like a grand idea!

Just started a rewatch and in the very first episode I'm reminded that all of Andy's temp jobs involve waving around something that looks like a detector.

Late to this and have binge watched the three series; it's beautiful and one of my favourites.

Everytime I see this thread bumped I am hoping that another new season has been announced.

Yeah, I hoped so, too. Still, props for good taste, Ste_S!
