Howard is trying to write a romantic novel but Mary and Trevor are unimpressed. Learning that Laura from next door is a very wealthy widow Howard proposes to her and is turned down. He then passes himself off as Quincey Brown,the famous crime novelist but is rumbled when the picture on the dust jacket of Quincey's book shows that she was a woman who died a decade earlier. And Howard's claim to have written a poem by Byron also exposes him as a fraud. Written by don @ minifie-1

(at around 29 mins) Howard has straightened his yellow tie, which he had pulled off to the right of his shirt to make a point to his sister a few moments before. However, at 7:00 his tie is again off to the right. In the next shot, the tie is again hanging straight. See more »

"I do not write thrillers. I deal in reality!"
29 January 2009 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Howard tries his hand at writing a novel. But his efforts - in which the main character is called 'Mark Tempest' - are derided by Trevor and laughed at by Mary ( who thought it was intended to be funny ).

Mary finds a poem by Byron copied from a book, and thinks Howard himself wrote it. The bounder heads over to Laura's house to see if she will fall for his new persona as a sensitive poet...

Mildly amusing third episode, not as good as the second but better than the first. I would have liked to have heard more about Howard's literary masterpiece. We do not even find out what it is called.

When the scam fails, Howard then masquerades as pulp thriller novelist 'Quincey Brown' author of 'The Corpse That Would Not Lie Down'. The lie backfires when Trevor tells Laura that not only did Quincey die in 1973, but was also a woman!

Funniest moment - Howard withdrawing his proposal of marriage to Laura in wonderfully melodramatic fashion.
