September, 1926: Hudson (Gordon Jackson) suffers a heart attack just before the French ambassador is due to arrive at 165 Eaton Place. While Georgina (Lesley Anne-Down), subbing for Virginia Bellamy (Hannah Gordon), does her best to entertain the ambassador and his entourage, a crisis looms in the servant's quarters. One of two candidates will take over Hudson's duties for the evening -- but which of the two is best (or for that matter, least) suited to the assignment. Written by Jeremy Paul, "The Understudy" originally aired in England on November 9, 1975, then in the United States on March 20, 1977.
