I've no more love for that creature

than you lot, nor has the King,

but before you stir things up,

don't you think you should find out

if he's the right man for the job?

Ah! So it's a test you're

looking for? We don't do tests.

Oh, I'm sure you don't.

They never do tests.

Nor many real deeds.

Oh, conversation with your

grandmother's shade in a dark room,

the odd love potion,

but comes a doubter -

why, then it's the wrong day,

the planets aren't in line,

the entrails aren't favourable,

"We don't do tests".

We've got no doubts.

We require no tests.

- And you're not going to get one.

- Enough!

Here. Put this in the conjuring room.

Go to the iron box.

Bring me the dagger within.

The dagger. Be quick.

You shall have your test.

Where are you, boy? I'm waiting.

- It's not this one, is it?

- The very one. Let it fall.

Mortem confundit magus.

- No! Stop him!

- Go on. Don't worry.

You can't hurt me.

Magical powers indeed.

Look at you now - magical ashes.



The kindest lord

a man could ever wish for.

Now he's gone.

Ye gods! You'd think he could boil

his own eggs at the snap of a finger,

but no, he had old Hodge to do it.

Up at five every morning, clearing

out the cages, emptying the slops.

Never a thank you

or a pat on the back.

I shall miss him.

- I do already.

- Oh, no, you don't.

All you think about

is your tricks and your knavery,

but you don't pull any wool

over these old eyes.

You'll have to walk far before

you fill his shoes, mark my words.

What's the matter, Hodge?

Pack too heavy?

No! Don't! Stop that! I need that!

Oh, give it back to me! This way!

I think you're too warm.

Stop it!

Out of respect for the master!

I have as much respect

for the master as anyone, old man,

but I'm master now.
