The Van Gogh Job

Series 4 - Episode 4 The Van Gogh Job



Here’s a wonderfully unlikely brew of missing masterpiece, wartime romance and under-threat roller-skating rink. Danny Glover guests as an old soldier who may or may not know where the vanished Van Gogh is. It may be a tall tale but it’s imaginatively told, with the scamsters enacting the flashbacks: the fact that the love affair is played out by will-they-won’t-they couple Hardison and Parker makes it all the more poignant. Simply one of the show’s finest hours.


The team sets out to track down a lost Vincent van Gogh painting, and discovers the missing piece was at the heart of a Second World War romance between a black soldier and the white heiress he was forced to abandon. Guest starring Danny Glover.
