Detectorists, the multi award winning comedy series about metal detecting enthusiasts Andy (Mackenzie Crook) and Lance (Toby Jones), returns for a feature length special.
The Danebury Metal Detecting Club is in trouble; developers are sniffing around, and after losing out on a big finder’s fee, the club is going to need a miracle to help save their beloved scout hall.
So when Lance manages to secure a permission to search ten acres of prime, undetected land, it looks like things could be on the up. But when a mysterious relic is unearthed, Lance breaks protocol, threatening his friendship with Andy and the future of the DMDC.
Written and directed by Mackenzie Crook, Detectorists is a Treasure Trove Productions, Channel X North and Lola TV production (1 x 75) for BBC Two and BBC iPlayer.
The Detectorists: Christmas Special airs Boxing Day on BBC Two.
