Margaret,working for a flower delivery service,calls at the wrong flat and takes pity on its occupant,elderly,blind Albert. She reads flyers to him,pretending they are from his relatives in Australia. Back home she finds Victor entertaining Pippa and Patrick Trench,their new neighbours but it takes her a while to place them. Victor is having trouble with a toy salesman and his ventriloquist dummy,which is losing its stuffing. Margaret learns that Albert died as an indirect result of buying mail order toys but somehow Pippa gets the impression that Victor killed him. Written by don @ minifie-1
