Storyline

When the British Museum gets Sidney and Nigel to help search at Tudor sites for a ring of king Henry VIII starting from clues in a painting, Nigel is confronted with his self-confident pestering elder brother Preston Bailey, who works there, but their resurfacing sibling rivalry -now also for a girl from their young years- is not the only danger, as at least one other suspiciously well-informed party joins the treasure hunt and soon proves violent.

Meet Nigel's brother
7 May 2014 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

King Henry VIII once was hiding Ann Boleyn's precious ring from daughter Elisabeth. Preston Bailey (Crispin Bonham Carter) asks his brother Nigel and Sydney Foxx to come to London and help him with the search for the ring. They hope that a poem will give them a clue, but the only copy of the poem is stolen by a competitor...

This episode may have only an average relic hunt to offer, but we get some great comedy moments based on the conflicts between Nigel and his – newly introduced - brother Preston. When Preston first calls, Nigel advises Claudia to reply, he'd be in the Himalayas for a year or two. Claudia wants to know what Preston is like, and Nigel describes him as 'arrogant, vain, inflexible, impossible'. She gives him a sweet smile and says: 'How can two brothers be so different?' The episode is good fun and it proves again that the second season is trying to get away from the familiar formula of season one instead of repeating the same all over again.
