New Detectorists special

Probably deserves its own thread.

"The feature-length, 75 minute episode is to air later this year, updating fans of the cult hit series on the lives of its characters, five years since the end of Series 3."

great stuff. Can't believe it's been 5 years since the last episode.

shiftwork2

Didn't see that coming.  Terrific news.

I have I second whoever said that the finale was brilliant and a good ending. But also that I have faith that they have a good story to bring it back.

But if Worzel isn't in the background at some point I will be disappointed.

jobotic

Excellent, I can finally allow myself to watch the final episode now!

The last episode concluded with Andy and Lance stumbling across a stash of gold coins, having very narrowly missed the hidden trove of ancient treasure for the previous two series.

- that's not true, is it? Maybe S1 but not S2.

BritishHobo

Get in! It's definitely the kind of show where you know they wouldn't be coming back if they didn't have something they're proud of.

I was always confused by this, but assumed it was me getting it wrong -

I was convinced they never found the buried ship that was shown to be underfoot.

Always meant to rewatch the show to see if I'd gone wrong somewhere.

Yeah, the

right at the end of the second. Still one of my favourite TV moments, probably in my top 10 along with the end of series 3. Get a bit weepy thinking about it. Toby Jones' face...

lauraxsynthesis

Fuck yeah that's going to be well worth watching. I hope there's not lots about Andy being a dad though

Sad to see that the village hall has been demolished: https://www.eadt.co.uk/lifestyle/heritage/detectorists-community-hall-demolished-8669312

Series three ended perfectly, but I'm confident they won't fuck it up. Please don't fuck it up.

I hope it's no Andy Stone: Life on the Road.

Met a lad in the pub the other night who was exactly like Russell from this.

Same, absolutely magic


holyzombiejesus

Yeah, and then that gorgeous shot by drone (presumably) as the camera goes up and up whilst Lance does his dance.

Whoop de feckin dooo.

I actually had the Johnny Flynn theme from the show as one of the tunes played out at my wedding as I stood awaiting the arrival of Mrs TTT.

So I found my treasure... see what I did there?

I hope you followed it with New Age Girl and some Crackdust.

Yeah that's a brilliant send off isn't it? I don't need to see/hear the actual dialogue because what could top that?

Similar opinions about the

ship they didn't find in season one

, a properly good and realistic bit of writing.

Robs you of a story beat, but opens up so many potentials in addition to it describing (accurately) the motivation for the hobbyists. Lovely bit of business.

I'm putting spoilers on these out of courtesy (and will continue to do so) but ultimately if you need them, stop reading this thread and go and watch the series. It's properly fucking good.

As we're praising Detectorists, I remember showing this programme to my brother for the first time, and after the magpie scene concluded, he just said, "Woah!"

Wonderful, wonderful show.

Blew their whole budget on that sequence, no wonder the rest of the series was just them standing in a field.

holdover

I'm unjustifiably worried it'll sully what came before.
Just because it's such a perfect thing.

Great news though!

Galeee

One of my favourite series and especially that bit. We went to see the Unthanks last month and they did that song, spine tingling!

I am torn because I'd love to see more of such a perfect programme, and terrified it won't be as good, like most Christmas Specials.

Brundle-Fly

I hope in this special all the main characters inexplicably go on holiday together somewhere abroad. There could also be a knowing cameo from Tony Robinson.

Not really. All I hope, is that they don't end it on too much of a melancholic note. They should dedicate it to Dame Diana Rigg though.

I suppose, what could be tackled is the finds ownership issues and how money changes people?

I have complete faith in it. Brilliant news.
