Episode 1

Martin Stone, a local history enthusiast and owner of an engineering firm, struggles with financial pressures due to his son Josh’s disability and daughter Laura’s upcoming wedding. When Martin and his son-in-law-to-be, Ashley, discover Saxon treasure while metal detecting, they face a moral dilemma: report the find or sell it secretly with the help of Ashley’s ex-con friend, Rocky. Martin, a law-abiding citizen, is tempted by the treasure’s potential to solve his financial woes, especially when his business partner disappears with company funds.

Episode 2

After an unsuccessful attempt to sell the treasure to a private dealer, Martin decides to legally declare their find. However, Ashley panics, fearing Rocky’s reaction. Despite ridicule from the Finds Liaison Officer, Sam Barnes, Martin contemplates selling the treasure again. Ashley’s financial troubles and a threatening encounter with Rocky push Martin to sell part of the hoard discreetly. Meanwhile, Detective Sergeant Doyle begins investigating, and Laura discovers her wedding fund has been emptied, leading to a tense confrontation with Ashley.

Episode 3

Following Laura’s mysterious abduction and release, Martin and Ashley suspect Rocky. As Detective Sergeant Doyle’s inquiries intensify, Martin spins more lies to cover up their dealings. Feeling overwhelmed, Martin sees hope in antique collector Denys Elland, who offers to buy the entire hoard. But when Denys reveals his true intentions, Martin takes drastic action, leading to tragic consequences.


Episode 4

Traumatised by his deadly encounter with Denys, Martin confesses everything to Anne. To protect their family, Anne devises a plan implicating Rocky in a robbery and murder. After staging a robbery at Denys’ house, they successfully frame Rocky. With Detective Sergeant Doyle off the case, the Stones begin to relax. However, Ashley’s desperation to reclaim the hoard and Laura’s cancelled wedding threaten to unravel Martin’s efforts to bury their secret for good.

The series was previously announced in 2023 under the name The Hoard.
