In A Woman Alone, following her disagreement with James, Anne has moved out of the family home. She finds it very difficult going though. Selfish and stubborn James is not prepared to make the first move even if it means Anne is staying in the Victorian equivalent of a YWCA. Jessop’s wife of all people offers a helping hand and takes her in.
Meanwhile James is taking a cargo to Jersey and discovers there is a young stowaway on board (played by Jack Wild), not suited to a life at sea he ends up nearly killing himself falling from the rigging.
Albert and Elizabeth are at loggerheads once again. Their young child (fathered by Daniel Fogarty) has been suffering convulsions. Elizabeth wants to ask Daniel if there is a history of it in his family but Albert is dead set against that idea.
Something of a changeable episode offering more proof that James is possibly the most stubborn man on Earth.
