Comedy series about two metal-detecting friends.

Andy and Lance become eco-warriors when they find their beloved oak tree is due to be felled. But a 24-hour helpline turns out to be more of a hindrance. Andy stumbles upon treasure when, for once, he wasn't even looking.

This was an absolutely lovely episode.

I watched it late last night, what an absolute joy! Too many best bits to list but the porcupine/hedgehog exchange and name confusion was comedy writing and performing at its absolute best.

I'm so looking forward to the final (ever! sob!) episode tonight and really hope that the ending will include buying the cottage with proceeds from [spoiler].

I'm predicting something bitter-sweet... we shall see.

That small moment after Andy has confessed to his mother-in-law, when he apologies for lying and kisses her on the cheek... one of my favourite moments in a series full of them.
