Episode 2 of 6

Henry and Vera are on a lecture tour of the USA, leaving Ginny and Lionel to look after Sizzlinghurst Castle.

Henry and Vera are on a lecture tour of the USA. Vera is invited to the Round Table at the Algonquin and meets Dorothy Barker, who she finds repellent. Henry, travelling towards Chicago on the sleeper, finds he is sharing a compartment with Al Padrone and his mysteriously heavy violin case.

Meanwhile, back at Sizzlinghurst, Ginny and Lionel are acting as caretakers and making a spectacular mess of things as they attempt to remodel the garden.
