Storyline

Hetty is approached by antique dealer Monty Francis,who is fleeing the thuggish young Flintoff brothers. They gave him an expensive clock to value - which he believes to be stolen - and now want it back. Hetty learns that the boys do some smuggling of porn videos but are really in fear of their formidable sister Conchita,from whom they have stolen the clock. Geoffrey's girlfriend Janet takes on a marital case for waitress Bryony,whose father Donald is also seeing Conchita,though things are not exactly as they appear. Written by don @ minifie-1
