A troubled teenage mother abandons her baby at a railway station, and Hetty is hired to find her. Chrissie's foster mother, who turns out to be Hetty's music-hall partner when they were young, explains that Chrissie might be setting fires (which is her real reason for seeking help). To make ends meet, Robert gets a job at a market and Geoffrey lets a photographer use him to enter a contest. Two pictures: one taken at a fire of a man in drag, and one of a grave, prompt Geoffrey to disguise himself - blonde wig, heels and all - to confront the arsonist. A hefty reward was offered for sussing the culprit and Hetty succeeds. After she receives the check, the old soft-shoe routine resurfaces. Written by
