Recap - S2 Episode One
Mickey, Danny, Ash, Stacie and Albert return from a well-earned break and are already setting up scams that target the greedy, unethical and malevolent members of society who have no qualms in using and abusing anyone who crosses their path.
When the team discover that old-time grifter, Harry Holmes
(Ronald Pickup - Cherished, The Riff Raff Element, Fortunes of
War), has been banged up in prison, they decide to pay him a visit.
After attempting to con ruthless property developer Howard Jennings
(Charlie Creed Miles - Nil By Mouth, White Teeth), Holmes may be in
long stretch. Jennings has been stung before and will not be outsmarted by anyone or so he thinks.
Danny is eager to take Jennings on, but the team do not share his enthusiasm. Convinced he can pull it off, Danny makes a bet with Mickey. But Mickey is already worried by Dannys insistence on throwing tried-and-tested tradition to the wind.
With a little help from Stacie, Danny is struck by inspiration and prepares the most outrageous con that they have ever engineered. They are going to sell Jennings a gold mine - in London.
Using a genuine discovery of Bronze Age gold artefacts in London, the gang concoct a myth about the artefacts being sourced from a secret mine under the capitals streets.
As the scam unfolds, it appears that Jennings is falling head first into their trap. But at the crucial last stage, Jennings decides to conduct his own tests on the land they are attempting to sell him. The team look to Danny for Plan B, but has his hare-brained scheme accounted for one?
