Guess which we’ll get.


Neither. The alternative version will retreat in the face of the Rabbit Fairy - to be pulled out of Brian’s hat - and all will be happiness and light.

But do not despair: the smart money is on a lot of angst and shoutiness, some of it through gobsful of pigeon terrine*, at Brookfield.

  • Ruth would really be happier with Shippams beef paste, of course, or even bloater, but Jill’s fished a pigeon out of the water tank, and waste not, want not.

Tom finds the truth.
Kirsty is livid.
Hannah has concerns for Tom.
