New updated title sequence for the new season and a nice shot on location opening for season six’s first episode The Bankrupt with Frank getting a lift from hire car firm owner Tom Lewis who, played by Gareth Thomas, also appeared in season five only then he was called Briggs!
Frank has just lost a choice contract with a finance agent thanks to a client, the Rolls Royce driving Melville Hayden-Peters, that he performed a credit check on turning out to be a bankrupt and possible con-man. Hayden-Peters has also run up a large £1500 debt with Lewis who wants Frank to look at how he can get his money back.
It soon becomes clear that Hayden-Peters, played by Australian actor and Troubleshooters star Ray Barrett, is up to some sort of con.
“It never surprises me what people will do for money, what did you get out of it?” – Marker to Hayden-Peters solicitor Adams.
