It's always fun seeing the battle of the classes.
4 October 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The class system is very much at play here, with middle class Eleanor pitting her wits against the upper class Mrs Judd Skeffington, and accepting the challenge of hosting a drinks party and buffet for The Bishop.

Sarah, who should delight in her mother's failings, once again shows her true humanity, and bails out her very fortunate mother. This was a nicely devised episode, with The Vicars and tarts theme fitting in nicely.

Some fun moments, and it's always nice to see someone so full of themselves taken down a few pegs. I enjoyed it. 8/10
