  • Daddy is up to his usual tricks again - this time at an up-market art gallery!

    Hyacinth's Daddy tends to wander off quite a lot and it's often quite a big task to find him and get him back. In this episode, he runs away to join the Foreign Legion and whilst Hyacinth is undoubtedly worried, she is not prepared to find him at the art gallery where she and Richard will be attending an exhibition! As he always does, Daddy causes an uproar and causes Hyacinth (and Richard) much embarrassment in the process.

    Daddy is always a good source of humour for the show and this episode is no exception when he runs amok!moreless
