The new series begins on Wednesday, 17 January at 9PM on Channel 5. The series has four episodes which will air weekly.

In the first episode, we’re introduced to Martin Stone, a passionate local history buff and unassuming family man, running a small precision engineering firm in Somerset’s scenic countryside. Married to Anne and father to Laura and Josh, with the latter needing continuous residential care due to his disability, the family faces financial challenges, further strained by Laura’s upcoming wedding to Ashley.

During a metal detecting trip with Ashley, intended to repair their fraught relationship, they stumble upon a valuable Saxon treasure in a nearby farm’s tranquil fields. This find thrusts Martin into a dilemma: obey the law and report it, or conspire with Rocky, Ashley’s ex-criminal acquaintance, to sell it clandestinely. For Martin, this could be an opportunity to be acknowledged as a revered historian and protector of heritage, or it might be the long-awaited stroke of luck, a chance to finally get ahead after years of unrewarding toil.
