Rewatching this; it's fucking brilliant. Funny and charming and warm-hearted.

I've still never seen the finale so I'm skipping the rest of this thread for now, but this is my comedy of the last 2 or 3'heaes fairly easily.

I was watching the excellent Alice Roberts show Digging for Britain, the theme music of which was written and performed by Johnny Flynn, who also did the theme to Detectorists... and on series 9 episode 2 one of the proper archaeologists was wearing a DMDC T Shirt.

Oh nice one! I read the link before clicking and thought for a second you were trolling us!

Excellent, Christmas special?

Worse still - I thought Jack Whitehall would be in it.

Seems to have been removed, hope it was a case of someone jumping the gun rather than making it up. This was the article

Just spotted via that account that there's a Detectorists zine too. Available here: https://temporalboundary.bigcartel.com/

I've ordered all three issues. Hope it's not shit!

Great news. I wonder if Worzel will be spotted in the background!

Scene at 18:17 - oh that is nice.

I hope it doesn't get made tbh. The final episode was one of the most perfect endings to a series that I can remember and the whole thing felt beautifully complete.

Yeah I'm sort of thinking this too, what is left to be said for the characters?

That said I trust the writing staff and actors to do something worthwhile with it, and to sack it off if it isn't working. More than can be said for a lot of comedy.
