Season 6 Episode 6 of 6

First transmission on Monday February 8th, 2010 (UK)

The official details…

The gang is just about to close another successful deal in the final episode of the drama about a team of con artists, but a cruel twist of fate reveals one of the marks to be an undercover police officer. It seems the team might be in a spot of bother.

Mickey and the team are arrested and unceremoniously thrown into prison. Things seem to have gone from bad to worse when Nigel Chambers and Jennifer Hughes from MI6 arrive to question Mickey. The pair have a proposition for him and, unfortunately for Mickey, these two don’t play by the book.

Jennifer has an ulterior motive – she is friends with DCI Lucy Britford who was conned by the team and has a score to settle. MI6 is willing to offer the team a pardon if they will do a little job in return. The target is the National Bank of Syria and the heist is the unknown contents of a security box. The reward for the team is their freedom plus as much cash as they can carry from the vault.

With no choice but to agree, Ash sets about trying to find a way into the vault. However, the bank has as much security as Fort Knox, which means that Sean and Emma are going to need to find a way in on the inside as well.

The team needs to go the extra mile to pull it off and it seems that even Mickey can’t charm his way out of this one.

Mickey is played by Adrian Lester, Albert by Robert Vaughn, Ash by Robert Glenister, Emma by Kelly Adams and Sean by Matt Di Angelo. Nigel Chambers is played by Tom Beard and Jennifer Hughes by Anna Madley.
