It's Chritsmas 1913 and 165 Eaton Place has a new resident in the form of Miss Georgina Worsley, Richard's niece. Lady Southwold is also visiting for the holiday. Georgina is 18 and has been at school in Switzerland. She is an orphan and there is a likelihood that she will stay on with the Bellamys as Richard's ward. Also new is Daisy, the under-house parlor maid. Also 18, Daisy is relatively new to service but she and Georgina hit it off, though their backgrounds could not be more different. When Georgina hears that Daisy has not been to see her parents in London's East End for some three years, she suggests they take food out of the larder and visit them. What they see is an eye-opener for Georgina. When they fail to return early on Christmas Eve, everyone is concerned for their well-being, forcing Richard to call the police. Written by

Miss Georgina has a teddy bear which she says she has had since she was 7. As she has just turned 18 the chronology means that she has had the bear since November 1903 at the latest. This would make her the owner of one of the first teddy bears, which didn't go into production until that year. See more
