Episode 3


Pat is booked as a guest for Tom Allen's new panel show, and Donna persuades the SW6 gang to carry out a practice heist at the studio in preparation for their big casino job - bad news for fellow panellists Jo Brand and Sarah Millican. Meanwhile, 'Sita's Creatures' animal acting agency goes from strength to strength as Serpico cements his reputation as the country's leading Merdog, before making waves elsewhere on set.

A true(ish) crime podcast, which sees undercover cop Pat Springleaf (James Acaster) share police wire recordings from the biggest case of his career: working to infiltrate and bring to justice the notorious SW6 gang.

Back in 2013, ex-conman-turned-undercover-cop Pat was in the middle of a career-defining undercover gig - but problems beset him on all sides: the gang are getting suspicious; his wife wants a divorce; the police are demanding results; and his ex partner in crime is blackmailing him. Not an ideal situation for someone with a burning need to please absolutely everybody. In 2023, meanwhile, Pat and his producer Adams play clips to studio guests as they unpack the criminal hijinks that launched the career of the man now reasonably widely-known as James Acaster.
