Episode Summary

EDIT
The Confidence Man
AIRED:
Richard Hannay is the new Honorary Secretary of the rugger group, 'The Centurions'. Sal Alford, landlady of Alford's Music Hall, is being threatened by standover merchant, Joe Morris, who is demanding protection money. Joe Morris is a rogue member of Charlie Peterson's east-end gang of thugs. Sal, frightened for her life, approaches Richard Hannay who tells her not to pay any money to Joe Morris. When Joe Morris arrives at Alford's Music Hall with Charlie Peterson's gang he is confronted by Richard Hannay's gang, 'The Centurions', who throw them out, but not before Richard Hannay is threatened by Joe Morris personally. Alford's Music Hall is subsequently vandalised, and Hannay is abducted by Joe Morris; however, he manages to bluff himself out of the situation by telling Morris that he - Hannay - is the leader of a larger, more elite rival gang operating from the West End of London, which is comprised of politicians and members of the aristocracy. Hannay organises a 'sting' involving 'The Centurions' who pretend to be a gang of highly skilled professional crooks. Joe Morris is successfully set up and sent packing. His reluctant fiancee Florence Peterson, daughter of Charlie Peterson, tells her father that she is in love with Arnold the police officer, and Charlie has to accept the fact that he will be the father-in-law of a copper.moreless
