Storyline

Lovejoy has sold many antiques to Annie Brodie, wife to one of the great pork farmers in Britain. She falls in love with a set of five satirical watercolor lithos from the 18th Century including one they both particularly like showing a sow and her piglets. Characteristically Eric clumsily drops and breaks one the paintings. While cleaning it up the mess, he discovers a beautiful Venetian bronze hidden under the couch, a statue that has been notoriously stolen from the Queen. To the Brodies, a highly anticipated royal visit from the Queen Elizabeth to their farm is worth much more to them than the beautiful statue, so they assign Eric to mailing it back to the palace. After hamhandedly getting D.I. Maggie MacDonald involved in the case and incriminating Lovejoy as a prime suspect, Eric carelessly allows his Harley to be stolen while looking for a post office along with the bronze in its saddlebag.
