Always remember to cross a gypsy's palm with silver.
Flora returns to Paradise lodge to discover Gypsy Magdalena doing readings for all the residents and staff. Flora is naturally sceptical and disbelieves every word she says, she clashes with Magdalena and refuses to cross her palm with silver, Magdalena places a curse on Flora, 'it'll be that foot first that feels the pain, next your back will feel the strain, water next from head to toe, then to the Church yard you shall go.' Bad things start happening to Flora, finally she accepts her misfortune is as a result of the curse, so Mildred and Dolly go in search of her so Flora can apologise.
The series was now bringing in guest actors, I suppose in a bid to freshen up the series, and take it beyond the confines of Paradise Lodge, Gretchen Franklin I think gave the best guest performance of the series, very funny, she had great scenes with Peggy.
Favourite quote, 'she reminds me of someone, is there a look of Worzell Gummidge.'
A fairly fun episode, nice performance from Gretchen Franklin. 7/10
