Back on BBC iPlayer on Monday at 7.00pm.

Bittersweet as it will be the final series, and will also incorporate a tribute to Slugs / Michael Sleggs.

I can't wait, but sad it's the last season and Slugs will be a much missed character sad

Looking forward to this

I love this series. Sad it's the last one!

Enjoyed this article about it in the Guardian a few days ago

"Some residents have taken against the show. One woman would deliberately park her Land Rover in front of the cameras to try to stop filming. Rather than being upset by the verbal abuse they have received, the Coopers have instead incorporated some of the barbs into their dialogue." grin

Really enjoyed the first episode tonight. Thought their way of honouring slugs was very Kerry and Kurtan.

Loved it smile

Oh thank you I forgot about this!

I loved the way they honoured Slugs. I'm sure he and his family would have loved it.

"Last words he ever said to us, do you guys fancy doing the zombie escape room on Saturday" smile

A lovely tribute, delighted they’re back.

It's so good. My parents live in a village very close to where it's filmed (one of the ones in which Kerry Mucklowe claims to have enemies, in fact!) and the programme is so acutely observed. Their village is like a weird mash-up of This Country and Midsommer Murders, without the murders. I can fully envisage the kind of miserable bugger who would park their land rover right where the filming was due to take place, as well.

Laughed my head off at Kerry getting into debt after buying an alpaca on Gumtree grin

I love This Country, so pleased we have a thread on it.

Strangely, I was a bit disappointed by the episode. It’s almost as if I knew what was coming - and the fact Kerry and Kurtan were apart for most of the episode it didn’t feel right. There wasn’t any Martin, Len, Mandy, we don’t even know if Kurtan still has his job!

It was an absolutely fitting tribute to Slugs though, I understand why it was the way it was. It just had a different feel to it with them not being together as much - I’ve got a feeling one episode Kerry is going to get a boyfriend or something.

@GCAcademic is it North Cerney, South Cerney, Cerney Wick or Broughton on the Water 😂

AnyFucker Tue 18-Feb-20 19:14:02

Daisy and Charlie are on the One Show right now

Laughed my head off at Kerry getting into debt after buying an alpaca on Gumtree There's so much more to that story that we didn't get to hear grin.

GCAcademic Tue 18-Feb-20 21:01:23

@TheTruthAboutLove - yes, it is indeed one of those! grin

Encyclo Tue 18-Feb-20 21:21:16

Loved it!

“Kerry’s only loyalty is to herself, Staffies and the tv channel Dave” 😂

minou123 Tue 18-Feb-20 21:35:32

I laughed my head off at Kerry telling the story about what happened on holiday; Newquay 2007. grin

MrHodgeymaheg Tue 18-Feb-20 21:54:50

I feel sad that Curtan got Kerry sacked, she was born to wear a high-vis gillet.

I missed Mandy with her nunchucks though. Hope we see her in the next episode.

I love This Country! So many people don’t ‘get’ it though, my DH being one of them so I can only talk about it with like minded people on here! Loved Kurtan having to turn Sue over with a snow shovel!

CodenameVillanelle Tue 18-Feb-20 22:07:21

Omg Kurtan is actually very handsome!

BettyBooJustDoinTheDoo Tue 18-Feb-20 22:08:20

The way they portrayed Slugs death was perfect, a fitting tribute.

BettyBooJustDoinTheDoo Tue 18-Feb-20 22:11:56

He was a model In his former life Codename

GCAcademic Tue 18-Feb-20 22:12:17

Codename - he is, he does modelling in real life.

BettyBooJustDoinTheDoo Tue 18-Feb-20 22:13:33

Scrubs up well doesn’t he?

CodenameVillanelle Tue 18-Feb-20 22:14:01

It's amazing what a set of curtains and a tracksuit can do! grin
