Hatton Garden Episode 3 airs Wed 22 May 2019



Two days have passed since the gang escaped from the Hatton Garden Safety Deposit Vault with millions in stolen goods, and everyone is just arriving back to work on the Tuesday morning after the long Easter weekend, when the burglary is discovered by a security guard walking into the vault to see the havoc left behind.

The gang, now led by Terry Perkins (Timothy Spall), has already carried out their first divvy-up of the haul and are now faced with the long wait until the inevitable police investigation has died down, before they can meet up again. But any chance of the group sticking to that plan disappears when Reader (Kenneth Cranham), the mastermind behind the raid who walked away after the failure of night one, discovers that they went back in without him. He desperately chases Perkins, Jones (David Hayman), Collins (Alex Norton) and Basil (Brían F. O’Byrne) for a way to get his hands on a slice of the proceeds but is shut out and is left feeling frustrated, empty-handed, and vengeful.

With newspapers reporting that foreign gangsters and young high-tech burglars could have been responsible for the heist, the gang revel in the fact that no one suspects them and are united in the belief that it will all be smooth sailing from here.

We follow a box holder who goes through the agonising discovery that his was one of the boxes robbed, and that his entire stock and cash reserves have gone. Uninsured, he faces ruin. The Flying Squad start to investigate under the command of DCI Paul Johnson (Jonah Russell). His team uncovers some crucial CCTV footage the gang were unaware of. But in the back of his mind, he knows that it will be the gang’s mistakes that will be their undoing rather than anything he can do. So he must wait. As long as the gang stays away from each other they will be safe. But Reader won’t let things go.
