Blood Relations (Episode #112)

KQED Plus: Fri, Mar 29, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

Hetty finally has a reply to her advertisement in the local press in Whitby. She has been seeking her only known blood relative, Kate Fielding, who immediately invites the Wainthropps to pay a visit. Robert is too busy writing an article for his column in the Ackersley Echo, but Geoff drives Hetty through foreign territory (Yorkshire) to the fishing village of Kirkewell, where Kate runs a pet shop. The cousins are delighted to meet for the first time since childhood and soon Hetty meets some of the other villagers, including Agnes Stubbs.

Hetty's hairdresser, Dawn Halliwell, is having problems with her husband Russ.

While Russ is known to have a twinkle in his eye, it's always been strictly for the girls and Dawn is anxious to find out what's really behind the attack.
