Dismayed that her husband George is ignoring her in favour of his much younger secretary Nancy, Maria Packington answers an advert guaranteeing to make her happier and ends up in Parker Pyne's office. As a result she is introduced to handsome young Claude Luttrell who makes her feel special, and eventually Maria and Claude 'bump into' George and Nancy, as a result of which George that what is sauce for the goose applies to the gander and returns to his wife. Claude lets Maria down gently by saying that he is a gigolo but will reform because of her so that she will always feel special. Written by

Applies to all episodes: In the title sequence, a female character is typing on an old-fashioned manual typewriter. She repeatedly pushes the carriage back with her right hand. For western writing, you always push the carriage with your left hand. The carriage moves from right to left as you type, and then you push it back to the right to start the next line. See more
A woman tears passion into pieces and gets no good from it, but a romance, my dear Claude, can be laid up in lavender.
