The bells are dedicated and the Christmas spirit just runs over at Home Farm.

Radio Times: Jennifer gives Brian the low-down.

Characters: , , , , , ,
  • The Boxing Day service at St Stephen’s (on its feast day, too) and the new bells, named in Tom and Pru’s honour, are dedicated.
  • Home Farm is not the easiest place to be – and it’s obviously not where Brian would want to be, at least not playing host to the Tuckers, almost too high a price to pay for seeing his grand-daughter. Yesterday’s dinner with Simon wasn’t too bad in places, he’s struggling today. Phoebe, though is enjoying it and Mike and Betty are enjoying it too. Jennifer, though, is worried that Kate hasn’t rung home (she did ring Phoebe yesterday) – and Mike’s tales of drugs and disease in Morocco aren’t helping. Brian and Jennifer are due off to the Caribbean in a few days for New Year in Barbados, but Jennifer doesn’t feel she can relax while so worried about Kate, maybe Brian should take Alice, instead?
