Comedy Detectorist? - BAJR - 31st January 2014

Mackenzie Crook to play metal detector enthusiast in one of four new BBC4 comedies

Crook draws on his own experiences as an amateur archaeologist with the six-part Detectorists, can reveal.

This could be terrible for so so many reasons... making fun of detectorists for one: as they "embark on a journey of greed, betrayal, rejection and redemption as they hurtle towards Danbury Metal Detecting Club’s greatest ever find,”

I suspect archaeologists will be represent in a touching and funny way as well. ( possibly mad hair/beard/stripy Jersey or tweed.. ) Well if you can't laugh at yourself...

So lets see!
