Hooten & the Lady closes its First Season with one last adventure for the mismatched pair before, or to be more accurate on, Alex’s (Ophelia Lovibond) wedding day. Running from the drama of a wedding that’s gotten out of control, Alex follows Hooten (Michael Landes) to the Caribbean in search of lost pirate treasure of Captain Henry Morgan. When her fiance Edward (Jonathan Bailey) follows, Alex struggles to juggle the future she wants with the man she loves versus the adventure she craves with the other man in her life.

Hooten and the Lady - Cambodia  television review

Despite his attempts to keep her out of his latest expedition, Alex (Ophelia Lovibond) shows up in Cambodia to help Hooten (Michael Landes) hunt for the Cintamani jewel. With the help of a local kid (Jay Heyman), Hooten has been able to find most of the relics needed, although he’ll need Alex’s help to get past some drug runners and decipher the clues leading to the jewel’s location. The trouble is that they aren’t the only ones on the hunt. Hooten’s old partner Kane (Vincent Regan) is also searching for the prize.

Hooten & the Lady - Ethiopia TV review

After Ella (Jessica Hynes) is kidnapped and help for ransom, Lady Alex Lindo-Parker (Ophelia Lovibond) borrows an artifact from the British Museum and heads to Ethiopia. Tagging along, albeit disappointed in the lack of treasure, is Ulysses Hooten (Michael Landes). Playing on established themes, the episode features a dangerous woman (Katja Hopkins), villains in search of treasure, bickering by our two intrepid adventurers, and artifacts and clues meant to lead to some long-lost archaeological find – this time belonging to the Queen of Sheba.

Hooten & the Lady - Rome TV review

British Museum curator Lady Alex Lindo-Parker (Ophelia Lovibond) crosses paths with treasure hunter Ulysses Hooten (Michael Landes) in Rome where she is attempting to excavate a site for the museum and spend some pre-wedding time with her mother (Jane Seymour) but soon becomes wrapped up in Hooten’s search for the prophetic long-lost Sibylline Book. As with the series first adventure, “Rome” is another B-movie adventure (although this time more of a knock-off of National Treasure or The DaVinci Code than Romancing the Stone). Finding the book will mean defacing the Sistine Chapel, fighting the Italian Mob, and very little wedding planning or working on the job Alex was sent to Rome to accomplish. Still, as with the first episode of the series, there is some fun to be had.
