    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • A title at the start of the episode sets the story in the spring of 1917.

      • As the bomb that damaged the hotel fell on November 28th 1916 and this story starts the next spring, it took the authorities a long time to deem the Hotel Bentinck an unsafe building.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Louisa: I could do with an extra pair of hands if you don't mind hard work.
        Puffin: I've never actually worked before. I think it'd be rather fun. I'll just nip back to my villa and get my pinny and things.

      • Charlie: Anything's better than sitting in the cold, shivering, being sniped at, cursing the news.
        Louisa: And the politicians, the profiteers and the pacifists!
        Charlie: And bishops. They're the latest hate, especially the one who talks about death in battle as a great adventure.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The wad referred to in the title of this episode is a jam cake, called a 'wad' by the soldiers. An officer like Major Toby Smith-Barton does not recognise the word.
