  • A thief who stole items from Cedric's home happens to run into Catweazle and tries to be friends

    8.1
    An average episode, still fun though.



    Confusion reigns supreme when Cedric accuses Catweazle of stealing and the next night King's Farthing (his ancestral home)is robbed.

    As the real thief, known as Tearful Ted, bumps into Catweazle at Duck Halt, he tries to act chummy and even leaves his loot with Catweazle, telling him the bag contains demons.



    The episode is well-plotted and quite humourous at times. Especially the scenes with Lady Collingford are great. Her accent and the way she looks really reinforce the sterotypes of British nobility. Her response to police whistles and burglars in the middle of the night is classic, she only hopes her husband doesn't catch a cold. However, her refusal of a cuppa (a cup of tea that is) seems very un-british.moreless
