The Detectorists 2014

     Andy and Lance are best friends and their favorite thing to do is get together with their metal detectors to see if they can find gold.  They haven’t found gold yet but it could happen at any time.  They also belong to a local club with other detectorists.  Their biggest find could be a fabled trove of Saxon loot reported to be in their region.  They get exclusive searching rights to a large field from a local owner.  This gets them into a battle with another club and two other searchers determined to work this land too.
     This is interesting and good.  The characters are just a little bit different, each in their own way.  The countryside where they search for treasures is beautiful too.  There are rules to follow in detectoring and they need to be strictly followed!!  3 ½* (I liked this series)

30 min each episode, TV Movie, Comedy with Mackenzie Crook, Toby Jones, Pearce Quigley, Gerard Horan, Divian Ladwa, Rachael Stirling.

Note:  Imdb 8.6 out of 10, Amazon 4.8* out of 5* with 78 reviews.
Special Note:  Mackenzie Crook plays the role of Andy, he is the writer of this series and he is also a detectorist.  He owns the yellow Triumph TR7 that appears in the episodes.  Diana Rigg and Rachel Stirling are mother and daughter in real life.  Filmed in Framlingham and Suffolk, England, UK.
