Lucille delivers hair-dresser Marjory Chivvers' baby but faces racist prejudice from Marjory's mother Mae, who blames Lucille when her daughter has a stroke. However Lucille stands her ground, encouraging Marjory's weak husband Dennis to defy Mae and take charge of his wife's recovery. The Turners welcome their super efficient au pair, Hungarian Magda, who certainly impresses Timothy, whilst Sister Winifred persuades a football-mad husband that being at his child's birth is more important than his game with more success than Trixie's dinner party for Christopher.
