News- The Daily Essential Briefing had the opportunity to hear what a real life detectorist thinks of the popular TV show “Detectorists”. As a recap, the show follows two friends that go in search of their heart’s true desires with a metal detecting. The show combines wit and relatable treasure hunting humor. Detectorist Gary Blackwell shares his thoughts.
“I am a massive fan of the show. For the first time ever a TV show has captured the true UK detecting experience – good and bad. What does it get right about the hobby? Everything, it’s just like being there in person. Talking rubbish and finding rubbish while enjoying the great outdoors is a part of the detectorist’s everyday life. Even non-detectorists say how fantastic this show is, and then they ask us, is it really like that? “Andy’s poor girlfriend reminds me of my own wife and what she has had to suffer over the years” The Danebury metal detecting club is truly cringe-worthy and makes me smile every time I see the ‘finds’ table. As with all walks of life there are the strange ones, and Detectorists has really highlighted the types of people we meet within the hobby.”
It’s always nice to see what others in our hobby have to say.
