NO SOONER THE WORD THAN THE FICTION

Mrs Darcy, Episode Fifty-Five

This episode concludes the exciting action sequence on the roof of Pemberley as we find out who it was who intervened with their steam-powered dirigible (and if that doesn’t pull in the steampunk readership, I’m giving up now). There’s also a slightly puerile sequence of puns based around a rude-sounding surname. Well, I’m not going to apologise this time: you should know what to expect by now.

Oh, and fans of the old US comedy series “Soap” may recognise a storyline which is about to develop …

  1. Excellent episode!
    I loved Soap in the eighties. Tried to watch it recently and couldn’t get past the hair.

    Thanks, Rachel! Must admit, I haven’t seen Soap since the 80s, so it might not work any more for me now either. One of these days I’ll give in to temptation and get the DVDs though.

    Thanks, Helen :) I think one of my real-life writers’ circle put it best when he commented that I wasn’t afraid to go for the low-hanging fruit.
