Season 1, Episode 3 of 6

Samuel is tasked by Mr Field to find out the names of those attending the Shaw’s latest party. After the party, Mr Field and Denning are unhappy with Samuel’s lack of detail. Samuel leaves the meeting, not wanting their business if it means being blackmailed. Courtney breaks it to Samuel that the company is close to bankruptcy. They must acquire more orders in the next few weeks. Knowing he needs the MI5 order, Samuel goes back to Mr Field’s office and is tasked by him to photograph all the guests at the Shaw’s upcoming fishing trip. Clutching at straws, Kathleen visits Sacha’s school to see if she can glean any clues about her son Anthony’s disappearance. Samuel and Miriam receive an anonymous letter, explaining that Hannah did not meet the Queen, and has been skipping many of the parties and balls. When they confront her, Hannah runs to stay with Esther. Once there, two of Esther’s friends Joel and Kevin, arrive with a gramophone. Kevin and Esther are evidently an item.Samuel and Courtney meet Denning, Mr Field, and Freddie Lawson at the airfield and agree to set up the staff locator demonstration. Samuel delivers his photos from the fishing trip. Having asked her to be her chaperone, Hannah and Kathleen attend the Queen Charlotte’s Ball. Once there, Kathleen confronts Paul Ledbury, convinced that he has news of where Anthony might have been. He initially denies it, but later posts an address for a boarding house to her. Arthur Wallington confronts Samuel about his motives for photographing everything at the fishing party, and tells him that Mr Field is a Soviet agent, not a member of the MI5. When Samuel next sees Field and Denning, his fears are confirmed when Denning’s dog appears to understand a Russian phrase.
