"I can't do this! You know it's wrong!" Blimey. That was a jawdropper. Lord Sir Anthony Strallan-Gormless has a backbone? That I was not expecting. Death by illicit sex, the flaring-up of an unexpected war injury or the sudden appearance of a melty-face – those I would have happily predicted. But not something really simple like him coming to his senses and realising that it was not a good idea to marry Edith after all.

And, Granny, frankly, what are you doing meddling? Why do you want to see Edith alone? Could it be just for your geriatric sport? »
