The Jewel In The Crown: Daughters of the Regiment (S1EP7 ITV 20 Feb 1984, Judy Parfitt)



Daughters of the Regiment: Still in Calcutta, Sarah accepts Jimmy Clarke’s invitation to attend a party and finds a somewhat mixed crowd. She also finds that Clarke isn’t quite the gentleman her aunt Fenny made him out to be. In Pankot Mabel Layton reveals to Barbie Batchelor why she and Mildred Layton do not get along very well. She also tells Barbie that when she dies, she wishes to be buried next to her husband in Ranpur. When she dies soon afterward, Mildred won’t hear of sending Mabel’s remains all the way to Ranpur and orders Barbie to leave the house as soon as possible. Mabel’s sudden death causes Susan to go into labor.
