Mrs Price joins a cult and almost gets taken for a ride.
3 January 2016 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ida receives a postcard from Mrs Price now home from Bournemouth, 'Light and shade will be yours this week,' Ida's intrigued, more so that she's not been in touch since getting home. Fearing the worst Ida visits and discovers Mrs Price greatly altered, dressed in robes and soft in nature, Mrs Price has joined some sort of cult. Brother Laidlaw is the cause, Ida suspects he's a conman, enlists Wilfred's help and sets a trap.

Once again, Claire Richards manages to give a great delivery, remaining straight faced at all times, a great performer. Simon Oates puts in a fun performance as Brother Laidlaw too.

It's a rather random episode, the storyline is a bit on the crazy side, saved by the performance of Claire Richards, who is great. Mollie looks so glam when she gets ready for the visit of Brother Laidlaw.
