Detectorists Metal Detector

Detectorists stars Mackenzie Crook and Toby Jones as friends who share a passion for metal detecting. Crook wrote and directed the show, which drew ire from the metal detecting community. They worried that the show would lampoon them and depict them as stuffy anoraks.

In truth, the show is a loving portrayal of the quirky characters drawn to this age old pursuit and over its six episode run viewers are provided with a glimpse into life in and around the Danebury Metal Detecting Club.

Crook and Jones star as Andy and Lance, a pair of squabbling best friends who are united by their dream of finding a priceless Saxon bounty. Both have slightly dysfunctional personal lives to deal with away from the Essex fields in which they regularly get their trouser dirty but will they find redemption in their beloved pastime?

Fans of British comedy gold are guaranteed to fall in love with Detectorists once it finally airs tonight on BBC 4 and they can pre-order their copy of the Series 1 DVD today from the Acorn online store.
