Storyline

Set in 1854 young Jonathan Flaxton (David Smith) inherited Flaxton Hall from his great uncle, Joseph who was heartily disliked by the locals. This meant that Jonathan has only aged retainer, Nathan (James Hayter), to help him and his mother run the huge hall. In this episode he meets Archie Weekes (Peter Firth) who's apprenticed to cruel chimney sweep, Holdsworth. Jonathan's father is a Captain in the Army and is away fighting in the Crimea so, effectively, Jonathan is the Squire and he uses his position to help save Archie from Holdsworth's worst excesses and they become unlikely friends - The Flaxton Boys. In this episode they tangle with a troop of hussars looking for a deserter. Written by Patrick Rowley-Brooke
