More problems for James in Mutiny, he has chartered a ship to transport fruit but the crew have mutinied at Brest claiming the captain has gone mad. James needs to act quickly to save the cargo and the life of the captain. His problem lies in trying to discover whether the crew are lying or if the captain is.
Once James has taken over command of the ship things settle down somewhat and the crew agrees to return to England. First mate Carby, the chief instigator of the mutiny, then shows James evidence that someone is trying to sabotage the ship.
On home front Elizabeth has a moment when she and Albert run in to Daniel Fogarty in town. Fogarty says nothing about the baby but later turns up at Elizabeth’s house. Anne and Robert only make a short appearance in this episode once James arrives home.
Something of a fabulous cast in this one, John Thaw is the mate leading the mutiny, Iain Cuthbertson is the captain confined to quarters and who does turn out to be somewhat mad. John Abineri from Survivors also pops up.
“We don’t care about your cargo Onedin. Take my advice. If you want it – eat it.”
