Summary
Bertie's mother, Irene, returns from the Middle East to discover that, in her absence, her son has been exposed to the worst of evils, television shows, ice cream parlours, and even unsanctioned art at the National Portrait Gallery. Her wrath descends on Bertie's long-suffering father, Stuart. But Stuart has found a reason to spend more time outside of the house and seems to have a new spring in his step. What does this mean for the residents of 44 Scotland Street?
