The Nine Days Wonder


Episode Info

Britain's General Strike of 1926 affects everyone at I65 Eaton Place. Hoping to stave off full-scale class warfare, budding politician James Bellamy (Simon Williams) accepts a "proletarian" job as a bus conductor. Meanwhile, Hudson resumes his temporary wartime post as a special constable in the event of any and all riots. The trouble is compounded when several members of the household staff cast their lot with the strikers. Written by Jeremy Paul, "The Nine Days Wonder" was first seen in England on November 2, 1975, and in America on March 13, 1977.
