Ep 28 - The Nonesuch
In this episode we wax lyrical over Sir Waldo. Handsome, charming and kind, an expert in the art of flirtation and a man who’d never abandon his Wretched Brats. No wonder Ancilla Trent falls head over heels for him, despite her best intentions.
And just as much as we hope Sir Waldo and Miss Trent will make a match of it, we’re desperately keen that Tiffany Wield doesn’t get her hooks into the lovely Julian. So it’s lucky that Tiffany can never disguise her tyrannical nature for long, and that the virtuous Patience is there to save street urchins and distract Julian.
We also ponder what Laurie’s future will hold. Will Sir Waldo manage to form a healthier relationship with him and steer him onto a better path? Of course he will! If he can drive a team of horses to the inch, Laurie won’t be a problem.
‘The names she called me! It beats me where she learned ‘em, I can tell you that ma’am!’
‘What did she call you, Laurie?’ Enquired Sir Waldo, much interested.
‘I wonder,’ said Miss Trent, in a voice of determined coldness, ‘if you would be so obliging, sir, as to refrain from asking quite unimportant questions? Mr Calver, what can I say but that I am deeply mortified? As Miss Wield’s governess, I must hold myself to blame, but I trust - ‘
‘Learn them from you, did she, ma’am?’ said Sir Waldo irrepressibly.
