By now Dr Appleby really had had enough. The skeleton had been interfered with yet again! How was she to convince this ridiculous Langley woman that there was absolutely nothing in the sources to indicate that Richard had been a French horn enthusiast (or indeed that he had once owned a cat called Blackie)?

Alone on St Helena, the formerly great general was reduced in his ennui to performing impressions of A.A. Milne characters for his gaolers - his "Eeyore" being a firm staff favourite.

Local spinsters Beatrice and Emily Parsons kick off their anti temperance campaign. They maintain that the reduced numbers of men partaking of the sacred drop has greatly damaged their chances of attracting husbands.

As the years progressed Beatrice and Emily's tactics to attract male company grew increasingly desperate.

Athos, Porthos and Brigitte knew full well that Aramis looked a right ninny in his new choice of headgear, but after the recent to-dos over the pink breeches and sequined scabbard also realised that it was probably just as well not to say anything at all.

Born with a rare deformity of the hands, Millie Banks mournes the death of her second husband. I only tried to stroke his cheek, she claims.

Although Millicent certainly wore the trousers in their marriage, and had masterfully delegated the sock washing chores to Reggie, she still couldn’t trust him to keep matched pairs together. As she so often said: “Socks Maketh Man, Reggie … so we know what that says about you, eh? eh!” .

Reginald, docile as always, submitted quietly to the habitual abuse ... and continued to soak his wife’s laundry in rat poison.

Sultana: Ok, Miss Zagadi. So what you're saying is that if we buy three of your necklaces for the price of two along with the optional charm bracelet then we get a free Tupperware casserole dish and first option on the frilly knickers next Thursday?
