Christmas - 1908 Elizabeth's marriage to Lawrence has been a failure.
Elizabeth returns to Eaton Place - along with her servants unexpectedly for Christmas - without Lawrence... Her parents soon discover that her marriage to the Poet is over - and why. They then to their shock and disbelief discover that despite her husband's impotence, Elizabeth is expecting a baby! One of the best episodes from this second season, which includes some great scenes - one of which is some harsh words for Rose, and for Thomas, when Hudson gets the wrong end of the stick! This episode includes the only housemaid never to 'speak'; 'Brenda' who it must be said; cut her hand - and not her tongue...
