This week, I watched the last episode of season 2 of BBC4's delightful series 'detectorists' written by, directed by and starring Mackenzie Crook. Also starring Toby Jones, amongst others, and a cameo from Diana Rigg!

Very English in its gentle humour following the hopeful but never successful trawling for bits of buried history by the Danebury Metal Detecting Club. "No we are not metal detectors; that is what we use. We are detectorists."

Watch all season 2 here, if you can:

Episode 1 available for another 12 days

I've treated myself to season 1 as I was late to this feast. Season 2 DVD now on my wish list :D

The haunting theme was written especially for the show: I'm Waiting for You by Johnny Flynn



Theme from detectorists by Johnny Flynn

Will you search through the lonely earth for me,
Climb through the briar and bramble?
I'll be your treasure.

I felt the touch of the kings and the breath of the wind,
I knew the call of all the song birds.
They sang all the wrong words.
I'm waiting for you,
I'm waiting for you.

(Mmmmmm)

Will you swim through the briny sea for me,
Crawl along the ocean's floor?
I'll be your treasure.

I'm with the ghosts of the men who can never sing again,
There's a place follow me.
Where a love lost at sea.
Is waiting for you.
Is waiting for you.
