troop of shoplifters but that's not the point i

spend my money giving you a good home for the 
sake of old times on condition that you behave

yourselves and cut the old stuff out as i've done

something seems to come over me and i don't know 
what i'm doing it's no good trying that stuff

out of your pocket money for a month to punish 
you and you're not to go to any shops without my

special permission it's only a week since

hello butch you're looking well retirement 
on the land seems to agree with you

not butch um not emma butch george 
burling now the tissue of roster

sit down crofton farm west selby wilts and so 
butch barrett is now farmer george burling of

wiltshire the honest countryman of the 
life have they made you a church warden

as a matter of fact they have i'm so glad i always 
felt that was your ultimate destiny do you help

to count the collection i used to uh vicar does it 
himself now i see and what has lured you away from

the safety of wheelchair i've come to tell you 
something yes george what jane henton's out oh yes

it's almost time isn't it i only heard a couple 
of days ago she's been out a month and the first

thing she did when she got back was to ask 
after a certain person me yes thank you butch

that's where she's living i thought you might like 
to know thank you it's fine seeing you again emma

edition we've had some times together you and me 
we have george you were wonderful often think of

it now nothing too dangerous for you nerves of 
steel you had even the boys were scared of you

do you remember that night you dodged 
the dicks but walking a six-inch girder

a hundred foot up with five thousand 
quids worth of sparklers in your hands

i wasn't a [ __ ] then you haven't changed 
and spin it i can see that i shouldn't like

to be in jean hinton's shoes if she tries any 
tricks on you perhaps she won't notice he's wise

if you ever want anything done or organized

for the sake of old times let me know my phone 
numbers on that paper i gave you thank you george

and now if you ring the bell 
maybe i'll bring you in some tea

comfortable all the houses yes 
i bought it three years ago

you bought it to make home for myself and some 
of my old friends who fallen on lean times

by the way you better keep an eye on 
your wallet while you're here my wallet

it's gone has it who have you seen since you 
came in only the maid and an old woman who came

through the hall when i was waiting she dropped 
a stick and i picked it up for it you don't mean

the sheep i'm afraid so she's over 80 but lifelong 
habits die hard you know catching me of all people

theo i'm afraid years of honesty 
have rather blunted you george

never mind i'll get it back for you after two

then that's settled there's only one thing uh 
can you get out there by the end of the month

jack oh yes sir i can manage that all right good i 
can't thank you enough sir all the ball for giving

me this wonderful chance we think we've made the 
right choice now it's up to you to prove we have

i shall certainly do my best sir what about your 
girl uh what's the name freda i'm gonna marry

her and take her with you well that's the general 
idea sir we've got a whole fortnight ahead of us

that's newspaperman talk girls there's a rule like 
more time than that to prepare for the great day

i'm not frieda sir she's very sensible that's 
blended it's not as if she had any real ties she's

on her own oh she's a painter really what does 
she paint uh well she's a pre-impressionalist uh

i'm not quite sure what that is but i think it 
means painting things before you see them i think

yes yes i do understand at least i think 
i do but well what is it oh it's the first

split second impression of a mountaintop oh 
yes yes of course but where's the mountain top

oh it's there but you can't see it now the brain 
hasn't had time to sort out what it thinks it

ought to see from what it actually does oh 
oh that explains it then how very clever

it's called pre-impressionalism it's what 
you see before you know what you're seeing

oh danny don't see what that is

hello western double five double three oh

i don't know what aunt lett is going to say only 
last week she was saying she hoped we wouldn't

get married in a hurry we can't i don't let it 
stand in the way she isn't even your real art

i mean it's only a courtesy title i know 
darling when you think of all she's done for me

ever since my parents went down in that boat when 
i was two she's cared for me and provided for me

and she was just their best friend i know she's 
been wonderful even when she went away for a

long time for seven years she left money for my 
school fees and for my training i owe her a debt

of gratitude well it isn't as though she was 
hard up and couldn't be properly looked after

that means she's got the house and all her old 
friends around her look i tell you what let's take

a run over there tonight and tell her all right 
how do you think she's gonna take it oh come on

lovely surprise how are you i'm very well

fire oh an army thank you

i didn't expect to see you tonight but it's 
very pleasant well we just wanted to see you

that's right well i can see you're both bursting 
with excitement so perhaps one of you would better

tell me what it's all about jack's been offered 
a wonderful job on the new canadian newspaper

this opening in montreal but that's splendid 
congratulations jack thank you shall i save

your breath by guessing the rest they want him 
out there as soon as possible and you've got to

get married right away is that it in a fortnight 
why not that's plenty of time there i told you sir

but luckily when i spoke to you you were anxious 
for us not to hurry oh i'm afraid i was just being

selfish but it's your happiness and jacks that 
really matters it's the idea of leaving you and

going so far away oh you mustn't worry 
about that i should be perfectly all right

drinks darling we'll celebrate the good news

genius for extracting money from even the most

reluctant of pockets yes she's always been able to

if you'll excuse me now certainly

so you found me yes i found you why are you in 
that thing i was knocked down by a car my back

was hurt they say i shouldn't walk again your back 
was hurt when you dropped over the prison wall

lucky for you your pals were waiting to get you 
away you didn't stop to help the one behind you

it was each by himself i know that's why 
i'm here you haven't ordered much heavily

how did you find out where i was just luck

i had an anonymous tip off did you no doubt 
you've been thinking you were pretty safe

tucked away here under another name but you must 
have known i get you sooner or later i suppose

nice comfortable little hideout do yourself 
well don't pity having it found out

there you are thank you just made

how much have you got salted away not much 
don't give me that i know better it's true

there was that notting hill 
job worth quite a lot that was

at the grove gardens the last one before 
they pulled you in you must have got quite

a slice out of that how much that's my 
business the business has been enlarged

you've got a partner it'll bit company for you 
think of all the talks we can have about old times

i don't want to talk about old times they've 
gone it won't do you any harm to be reminded

from now onwards it's halves so you're putting the 
blank on me you're surprised what did you expect

i could give the police a 
nice little bit of information

not that they'd know the name of frost but there's 
another name they'd know and be glad to hear it

some time ago i would have been a dangerous person 
i've tried that on but i've changed since then i'm

not like i was i'm very gentle and kind gentleman 
kind my foot the leopard can't change its spots

now i come to think of it i saw a woman in the 
hall i couldn't help thinking i'd seen her before

look here what is this place what do you mean

there's something queer about it i believe it's 
a genuine boarding house who owns it you yes

i own it i see i run it as a home of rest for 
some of my old friends who've fallen on bad time

very charitable now we know where we stand 
i'll be seeing a lot of you miss frost

i enjoyed our little chat

i think it's going to look a treat very nice the 
only thing that gets up my nose is that old sour

guts is going to have any of it only what she does 
evil choker yes keep stirring this for me milby

it's not eating little choker two bottles 
of whiskey went up to a room this morning

that's her bell if she thinks i'm going 
to answer it she'll find out she's wrong

take real borders i'll tell you something

i was only doing what i was told to do tell to do 
miss floss told me if anyone named berry phoned up

i was to give her a room yeah i'm ready for 
that man i'll tell you something else eddie

until all this is over

let me look oh stubs in china 
yeah you are paid you paid for it

well of course dear how else do you think we 
could have got it that's what i was wondering

we've been saving up on the quiet ever since they 
were engaged so as to have enough my dear louisa

i see right thank you goodbye it was murder all 
right there's no doubt about that she had enough

of the stuff inside her to kill two people we sent 
their fingerprints along to the yard inspector

cranes just had the results yes george burling 
was really ned barrett and the barrack gang was

smashed ten years ago the woman was gene hinton 
who was leased in prison two months back gene

hinton sir wasn't she the woman in that escape 
business yes that's right with them randall one of

the smartest jewel thieves in the business climb a 
wall like a cat and she got away but hinton didn't

and got an extra sentence now we know where she 
went when she was released but three weeks ago

she disappeared and there hasn't been a sign 
ever since then looks as though she was trying

to blackmail this fellow burling or barrett and 
that he arranged to meet her and then killed her

and was trying to do away with the body 
probably going to bury it on the farm

sounds all right but what we've got to find 
out is where she spent the last three weeks

thank you music

yes mad in your eye same deal 
dear come on you battle eggs

louisa iron is the voice of the turtle i 
don't have oh but why not i like it it's

lovely you've had quite enough already oh but it

there and thank you for everything goodbye my dear

and may you always be happy

say goodbye to everyone darling be good jack 
keep her close to you always whatever happens

i promise i will i know how you've 
loved and cared for her all these years

i called in at the offices of the green 
funnel line the other day and asked to

see a list of the passengers on the 
princess delphine when she went down

the two names i was looking 
for weren't on the list

i'll take care of them come on

mr porsche to see you mr pawson but 
this time he says it's very important

very well show him in of course

good morning vicar this is nearly cool miss 
frost have you seen the paper not yet then you

don't know no what about miss berry miss betty 
my dear vic what are you talking about sister

thank you then you don't know that you've 
been harboring a criminal in this house

criminal really vic listen to this miss rust 
it has been established that the woman whose

body was found in the wrecked car after the 
collision near marshmallow last week did not

die as a result of the accident but had been 
poisoned several hours before she has now been

identified by her fingerprints as gene hinton who 
had been released from holloway prison six weeks

ago after serving a sentence of several years 
well well the there's a photograph this hinton

was in fact uh miss berry oh really baker i don't 
believe that there's a picture i see for yourself

oh i admit it's like her but of course it's 
not the same woman i don't agree with you miss

frost i think it is the same there are one two 
other points other surprising facts have come

to light the owner of the car george burling of 
crofton farm west sultan butcher who was killed

outright in the crash was in reality an ex-gang 
leader by the name of butch barrett and both he

and the dead woman hinton had been associates of a 
notorious woman jewel thief by the name of randall

who'd escaped from prison five years ago and 
was never caught the police think it is possible

that after release gene hinton might have made 
contact with randall and anyone who recognizes

his photograph and remembers seeing her within the 
last weeks is asked to communicate at once with

the police really miss frost even if you don't 
believe miss berry was the woman i consider it

your duty to inform the police my dear vicar i i 
really don't want to be bothered with this at all

even if miss berry was gene hinton she's dead 
now and he couldn't do any good letting the

police know she's been staying here it'll only 
cause a lot of unpleasantness but someone is

about to tell them i mean she must have 
been seen about you no she never went out

i'm sorry miss foster cause you any unpleasantness 
but if you refuse to inform the police i consider

it my duty as vicar of this parish to do 
so myself why well they want to know where

she spent the last weeks they think that 
she may have tried to make contact with

ms frost

why did she come here to this house 
was it to find to find emma randall

you know i never said emma 
that was a slip a bad one

you it was blackmail i suppose yes 
well what are you going to do nothing

the next steps are up to you i shall not take them 
so far as i'm concerned i shall seal this with

a seal of confession i realize of course that if 
nothing is said you may escape the judgment of men

but there is another judgment 
miss frost that no one can escape

i leave you to act as your conscience dictates


yes? there's a lady 
asking to see you sir lady

name of frost she's in a wheelchair 
she says it's important. all right show her in

now the inspector will see you m'am

morning madam what can i do for you? 
i have something to tell you inspector
