Episode Synopsis: Directed by Adrian Lester, the crafty Hustle team learns that a valuable Picasso has been stolen and sees the perfect opportunity for a con. However, a sticky situation arises when they unwittingly try to sell a fake of the painting to the original owner; a faux pas that results in Mickey being kidnapped with only a few hours for the team to return the genuine piece…

Searching for ways to trace the pinched original, the gang visits eccentric Picasso forger, Dolly (played by Sheila Hancock) and insider Cyclops (played by Bill Bailey) for info. They soon learn that Scottish brothers, the McCrarys stole the artwork for hardman Harry Holmes (played by Martin Kemp) and begin their plot to steal it back.
