Well, well Roy! Everyone loved it - perhaps because it was escapism to some ethereal version of England which mainly exists in those rare transitory moments of dewy cobwebs as the sun comes up.

Dysfunctional broken families, children that parents have never seen as they grew up, corruption in the "Heritage" and building trade, grown-up working people forced to live wih their aging (sorry Diana...) parents because of forty-year old hot-air housing bubble... a lottery win that doesn't make you happy... crystal healing and wholemeal candle shops that are dying in their elusive customers non- footfall... cutting down trees to clear land for wind-farms... a mayor who loses his chain of office when out dogging...

"Detectorists" simply provided a pastoral setting for an ever so slightly dystopian society...
