When Lovejoy's home and headquarters are repossessed, Ian McShane's (Deadwood) heedless antiques dealer lands in dire straits. The financial blow forces him and his associates, Eric (Chris Jury, The Big Game) and Tinker (Dudley Sutton, The Beiderbecke Connection), into some of their seediest jobs yet. From ripping off an eccentric Dutch art dealer and making a real Stradivarius seem fake, to conning an entire viewing audience on national television, Lovejoy tests himself to the limit.
Of course, his antics don't sit well with Lady Jane Felsham (Phyllis Logan, Downton Abbey), whose on-again-off-again relationship with the affable antihero is constantly under fire. Will her good influence be enough to change Lovejoy's endlessly questionable behavior? Most likely not--but that won't stop her from trying. Guest stars in Series 4 include Martin Clunes (Doc Martin),Ronald Pickup (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Leslie Phillips (Venus), and Richard Griffiths (Harry Potterfilms, The History Boys). 13 episodes, 12 hours, 4 DVDs, SDH.
