  • An ex police man approaches Mickey with incriminating pictures of Danny. Unless Mickey does as he says, Danny will go to jail. However, he later discovers that if he does do what he says, he will go to jail. What will Mickey do?moreless

    This episode was fantastic in my opinion. I loved the excellent mixture of seriousness (with mickey and the ex police man) and sillyness (with Stacie and Danny's cons.)I thought Ash was funny as usual, and Mickey was his usual brilliant self. And Danny losing at strip poker ws hilerious. Only downside in my opinion was Stacie rejecting Danny, the poor guy.

    • Ratings:
      The same number of viewers from last week tuned into this week's episode - 5.3 Million. This is excellent for BBC1! So much so, the BBC announced that they have already picked up "Hustle" for a second season.

    • Robert Glenister on his who his character Ash is:
      "He's always a presense within the gang, but he's sort of... he's quite happy to take... to be in the background a bit. I think he's quite happy to, you know, although I, I mean you know to do the computer bit and to sort of set things up and think things through and to offer his advice when it's asked for."

      "I think he's quite a respected part of the crew because he's not... he doesn't stick his oar in when it's not wanted. I think he is reliable. He's very good at what he does and I think he has a great sort of rapport with everybody. He been like sort of like a benign uncle really. I mean, they don't defer to him necessairly , but I mean, I think his opinion is is.. can sway things either way sometimes, you know, which is quite nice."
