As the pair battle through snake-filled jungles, we learn of Hooten’s mysterious past and Alex’s impending nuptials to vet Edward (Jonathan Bailey – Broadchurch, W1A), and an unlikely bond is formed. Now a unit, and with the brilliant and eccentric support of Ella (Jessica Hynes – Spaced, W1A) and Clive (Shaun Parkes – Line of Duty, The Mummy Returns) at the Museum – they travel the world from the Vatican to The Himalayas, the Amazon to Egypt, in their quest to save the world's lost treasures.
