Tink announces his retirement from the antique trade to open up a pub and suggests to Lovejoy that he should marry Charlotte. His imminent eviction from the Felsham barn for non-payment of rent is another reason he decides to pop the question. At first she hesitates, but finally says 'yes' during an auction in which she is selling a pack of Victorian love letters for Lovejoy. Complications arise when Jane returns from America and contemplates buying Felsham Hall and Charlottes father is attacked by "nighthawks" who pillage archaeological digs. Written by

Good Bye 'Lovejoy' :-(
25 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I always liked 'Lovejoy' and having visited the area a few times it is nice to see the places in the flesh, so to speak. There is the odd problem, but show me a perfect film or TV series!!! The first series was darker and sometimes you could pick out the actors finding there way, but when it gets going and every body knows every body its very good. One thing I like is the information about the antiques, having access to the www can confirm the facts, etc, they come out with. This episode and the first of the second (or third) is a bit sentimental with flash backs to the past and the characters been all chummy and sometimes been out of character... Its a shame they did not have 'Charlie Gimbet' in the last one, in fact he should have been in more. Also they should have had a 'Comedy Plod' in the whole series (ala 'Minder'), Police make great comedy! Well worth watching and shouting at the TV screen when Lovejoy makes a hash of his love life! He should have married Lady Jane...
