Hustle 6.02 Series 6: Episode 2 of 6 (2010)

While seeing Albert off at the airport – he’s going to relax in Vegas – the crew run into ‘Liability’ Finch who has just stolen a Van Gogh but had to leave it in Brazil. He asks Mickey for his help but Mickey insists he’ll only bring them unwanted attention and trouble.

6/10

Mark Benton is charmless and irritating at best (he’s the fat guy off those reverse-psychology Nationwide Building Society adverts) but the episode bad guy, an ambitious Customs cop, is great. That said, it definitely feels a bit off that the cop is not totally corrupt; he’s playing two sets of crims off each other to recover a stolen painting. Presumably, last week’s supercop Indira Varma will only now turn up again the last episode of the season. Shame.
