Just spotted Series 3 is about to begin. Episode 1 starts tomorrow (Monday 15th) at 10pm on BBC2. Hopefully it'll live up to the first two series.

It made mine when I read about it too! I'd thought they were unlikely to make a 3rd series so when I saw it in the schedule I initially thought it was the first series being rerun. Let's hope Mackenzie Crook's writing doesn't disappoint and the talented cast match their usual high standard.

That listing suggests it is a rerun of series 1, which fits with the announcement that series 3 will be filmed this summer.
Still, I'm very happy to relive the early days in anticipation of the new stuff...

I'm sure it will be worth the wait. The first two series produced some of the best telly ever in my humble opinion.

This. This. This. The simplicity yet depth of the dialogue is excellent.

I'd thought that too, but it was the quickest link to the series I could find. I hope I've not misinterpreted it...

Hmmm, on reflection, maybe they're repeating the first two series as a primer for the final Series 3.

Sorry to have got your (and my) hopes up! :-/ On the plus side, at least they are making - or have made - a 3rd series, which will hopefully be broadcast very soon.

you are forgiven.....

I didn't even know there was going to be a third series so still great news!!!

Not sure how they will top this though:

No apology required
As JMarkW said above it's great news, even if we have to wait a while.

My only problem with it coming back will be the occasional acquaintance asking, yet again, if that's what I do all day...

I've been waiting for the repeats each week and i just discovered Series 1 and 2 on Netflix.

Stoked. Also you should listen to Johnny Flynn, he does the soundtrack, and has a cameo in the open mic night episode.

He is on almost daily rotation on my Spotify. A perfect background mix for 'getting on with work'.

Absolutely, there's never a day goes by when we don't find treasure with mystical powers ;-)

Personally I'd like it to be more like We Are History!
