It is the Summer of 1916 and the Little Ottleys, as that tall, fine-looking couple had been known, are a couple no longer ... Bruce, who headed off to the States with Madame Frabelle, has found life with her less than idyllic, and he returns to England (without her) in quick time. However, Edith is all ready to marry Aylmer. The divorce papers are drawn up and marriage plans are being made. When Bruce returns, Edith quickly realises that the poor man can't manage if he's left to his own idiotic devices. She doesn't love him. Aylmer is the love of her life and she is looking forward to making a new life with him but Bruce's hopelessness arouses pity and concern in her, as well as extreme frustration, and she allows him back into the spare room in the concise house in Knightsbridge. But when is she going to tell Aylmer? Vincy Wenham Vincy - friend and confidant to Bruce, Edith and Aylmer (mentioned in Series 1 and 2, but never given his voice) - finds himself in the impossible position of keeping secrets from all three of them, and offering advice to them at the same time. The Writer Martyn Wade is a skilled and talented radio writer and dramatist. He has a sure and dry comic touch which is ideal for continuing the stories created by Ada Leverson, a contemporary and friend of Oscar Wilde.Show more
