plot

War with Germany is on the cards, and in the household of Sir Henry Bludgeon-Plunger both Upstairs and Downstairs are making plans. Perpetually befuddled Sir Henry is stocking on fifty million pairs of boot laces for the troops. His daughter Virginia has become a suffragette and is campaigning for women's rights whilst son Willie is doing just about everything in his power to avoid military service. Meanwhile downstairs a new footman by the name of Otto Klanger has joined the staff. He immediately arouses suspicion by keeping Carrier pigeons as a hobby and having a rather odd accent.

review

More servants and their masters gubbins. All across the nation, people fail to laugh.
