Storyline

Three aristocratic ladies now living in reduced circumstances, agree to have lunch together as a tribute to Dench, the woman who worked as a nanny for all of them in many years ago. As they reminisce, it becomes clear that through their meanness and snobbery, they all treated Dench rather poorly. But maybe their lowly servant can have the last laugh? Written by Gazhack

Aside from the staid acting and directing, this is one of the more memorable episodes of Tales of the Unexpected. The story revolves around Dench who we initially understand is linked to three elderly ladies. As the story progresses we learn that the three ladies have returned to living in England after life abroad and in reduced circumstances. We also learn that Dench was a nanny to their children and despite the fondness they express, was treated as a staff member.

As the story unfolds the viewer is intrigued to find out what lays in store for the three women and the ending is suitably fitting. The only gripe is that the a lack of concentraion about two thirds of the way through would leave the viewer to completely miss the point of this tale.
