Episode 1: Million Pound Pawn

Summary

Return of the documentary about pawnbrokers and their customers, this time lifting the lid on the fast-moving and fascinating world of luxury pawnbroking on the Costa Del Sol. Sheffield-based pawnbroker Dan arrives in Spain with big plans to expand his business, and that means tapping into his local contacts to secure the very best clients. First up he meets Aiden, a classic car restorer who is looking to sell his 1960s Rolls-Royce for more than £300,000

Review

The Costa del Sol is home to thousands of super-rich Brits, hence it’s a magnet for the elite UK pawnbroker stars of this returning series. In episode one we meet millionaire expat Anthony, a colourful character who was the first pawnbroker to set up shop in this millionaire’s playground. He runs the business with his sons (and a dachshund).

The family theme continues with Kathy and her gold bullion dealer daughters. Their main client this week is a retired Scottish engineer who has put his accumulated material wealth in perspective following a recent personal tragedy. Meanwhile, new arrival Dan tries to sell a 70ft luxury yacht.
