A near tragic car accident between mechanic Thomas Watkins and nanny Sara Moffat reunites the onetime couple. Sara has lied, claiming she is a widow in order to get a church-sponsored position as a baby nurse. Thomas is an auto mechanic trying to obtain a French auto dealership, but as the company requires that he show a stable marriage, he has lied, claiming himself as a family man. Thomas wants Sara to pose as his wife, but she refuses and demands that he really marry her. Thomas assumes the baby boy she's taking care of to be their child and kidnaps him for his own benefit. When he discovers that his own child has died, and he is guilty of kidnapping, his considerable powers of persuasion are put to the test in order to extricate himself from this latest escapade.

Thomas and Sarah have left the Bellamy's.
3 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

June, 1910 It's just after Thomas and Sarah have left Eaton Place. Sarah has lost her child by Thomas, and Thomas has walked out on her.

Since then, Sarah has become a Paid Companion-cum-Nanny to a Mrs. Laugton whose husband is out in India. However; Thomas turns up by chance and believes the child Sarah is minding to be his. Sarah refuses to return with Thomas, and so Thomas then kidnaps the child...

An interesting first episode to this much acclaimed series which was a late 'spin off' to the award-winning series 'Upstairs, Downstairs' that had ended several years earlier.

This series is best watched between seasons two and three of 'UD' for continuity purposes.
