I must go. Excuse me!

Great heavens! Who was it?

Find him! I want him!

I'm most terribly sorry.

How can I make amends?

- A glass of brandy, perhaps?

- I want...

I want to go home! Get my car.

- I do understand. Perhaps tomorrow?

- Oh, no! Impossible!

- We would be very honoured.

- Very well!

- Thank you, Lady Brinkley.

- Thank you, Lady Brinkley!

- Can't I stay with him?

- No. You're putting the surgeon off.

Don't worry,

it's quite a simple matter. Cheer up.

You go to the waiting room

and if there's any news, I'll call.

Thank you very much.

Mr Grimsdale!

- 'Ere, how did they get...

- Shh.

No! Did they?

Cor, they didn't, Mr Grimsdale.

Oh, Mr Grims...

It must've been very...

That's enough, Pitkin. Sufficient to say

it were extremely uncomfortable.

Well, I think you've been snatched

from death's door.

From the very threshold, Pitkin.

- Miracle, Mr Grimsdale. A miracle.

- A miracle, Pitkin.

- Miracle.

- A miracle.

- Mir... How long will you be here?

- Months.

I'm still on the danger list.

I'll have to lie very still for a month,

then it depends on the doctor.

The doctor said you can go out

tomorrow, Mr Grimsdale.

I should let him rest now.

Pitkin. Take my watch...

Oh, can I, Mr Grimsdale?

...and lock it up in the safe.

Yes, Mr Grimsdale. You can rely on me.

'Ere, I can wear it in the daytime,

can't I, Mr Grimsdale?

Mr Grimsdale?


- Shh!

We're very fortunate

to have a second chance,

so let's make sure

nothing goes wrong this time.

Hey, take it easy! What are you doing?

How kind of you to...

Oh, please, do you mind?

Excuse me, please. Lady...


I, er... Oh.

- I apologise for this little spot of bother.

- Please, don't worry.

- No one's been hurt, have they?

- Go away.

Please, Lady Brinkley.
