After Miss Brahms at breakfast has read the article about yesterday's cricket match in the local newspaper and Captain Peacock and miss Lovelock have taken a morning horse ride, Mr. Rumbold finds a letter, saying that a "Mr. Slocombe" will be coming to stay. Mrs. Slocombe soon realizes that it's her 42 year estranged husband, whom she has no desire to meet. When he's about to arrive, she first tries to hide in the cellar, but to no avail. Instead, she disguises herself as Mr. Moulterd's wife. The situation worsens, when it appears that Mr. Slocombe is interested in buying the manor. As he would be forced to keep the staff, Mrs. Slocombe thinks it extremely humiliating having to work for her ex-husband. In order to reduce his interest in buying, the gang all dress up as various "local yokels", all pretending to be part of the staff, so that he'll think it will be too expensive to run the manor. Written by Anders E Lundin
