Storyline

The business is going well and the Eliotts are enjoying an ever-positive reputation for their innovative designs. A new client in particular, Mrs. White, is giving them both her custom and recommending them to all of her friends and acquaintances. Bea is shocked however when her husband Philip calls to collect her and she realizes just who Mrs. White is married to. Penelope Maddox is at her wits end and is approaching a nervous breakdown in her attempts to help the poor and the homeless. Evie continues to see both Hugo and Sebastian regularly. When Sebastian suggests that she accompany him to Paris for a weekend, Bea flatly refuses to give her permission until Sir Desmond Gillespie comes up with an acceptable solution. The planned trip however results in disaster and heartbreak. Written by garykmcd

Brains, planes and automobiles
23 June 2019 | by raeamesSee all my reviews

All the things we love this series for are here: the emotional drama but most of all the frocks and props. This episode also has vintage cars and planes to admire.

The only absurdity is the single-person biplane that is supposedly taking several passengers and their luggage to Paris. Even if they were lying flat on top of each other they would hardly fit in. Not that anyone would miss the view, since there are no windows in the body of the plane: always a bit of a giveaway, that! And you thought that budget airlines were a modern invention?
