  • Episode Description
  • As the third series begins, Lovejoy returns to Felsham after a long break in Spain, where he was trying (without marked success) to learn to paint. He quickly seeks out Tinker (who has joined a monastery), Jane, who has a new look, and Eric, now working as a security guard. Victoria Cavero, an old friend of Jane's, comes to stay, and Lovejoy loses no time in falling for her. Victoria wants to sell a South American gold ring, and the ring sets in motion strange events for Lovejoy and Jane, including safecracking, kidnapping, polo and betrayal.moreless

    • Lovejoy: (to camera) Well, I've been back for two days, and I'm drinking Pimm's with the Polo set!

    • Fred: Goodbye, Myrtle. Tinker & Lovejoy: Myrtle?!

    • Lovejoy: (to camera) Three hundred thousand dollars, if you remember? But pay a few debts off, put down a down payment on your daughter's first flat, give yourself a brief change of scenery, and bingo, it's gone, well, almost gone. This is what I miss (nods to the market place). Gave up the game for a while, went to live in Spain, to see if I can remember how to paint. (someone calls out) Hi, how are you? (to camera) They're not fakes, the real things. To see if I could. I can't. I mean, who wants a Lovejoy, when you can have an Utrillo? A fake Utrillo. Perhaps I have returned a better and wiser man? Who knows? Anyway, I'm back, and it's time to renew old friendships.

    • Eric: I'm not saying I'm coming back, that way lies madness. I will come in to file your stuff for you on the evenings, for old time's sake, and do the odd weekend job. Lovejoy: Your choice, Eric. Can't say I'm not disappointed, I've had my mid-life crisis, Tinker has done his penance. Tinker: Amen to that. Lovejoy: For us, it's business as usual.

    • Lovejoy: Aren't half the art collections of the world built on someone at some time thieving something from somebody else? People even die for it. Alfredo: That's either a very sophisticated or a very cynical view. Not knowing you as a person, Mr Lovejoy, I cannot be sure which.
