The Ball Game
9 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is a frothy episode again relying on Cissy being inept much to Flora's annoyance.

Cissy has gone off to purchase a small elephant for Flora and returns with a crystal ball. Naturally Dolly can see the future and makes a cryptic revelation about the future.

The residents have been robbed but not Flora and it was Cissy who let someone who she thought was the window cleaner into the home. Flora is determined to find the burglar.

It all gets a bit farcical as Flora ends up repeatingly injuring the policemen who have come to investigate the crime and is risk of being arrested.
