Storyline

Attempting to flee the grounds Sir Giles is pounced upon and killed by a lion,his offshore investments leaving Lady Maud a very rich widow. Blott,meanwhile,who has squirrelled away a substantial amount of ammunition,barricades himself in the gatehouse to the hall as Dundridge orders the SAS to attack. An emotional television broadcast in which Blott insists that an Englishman's home is his castle helps put paid to all further ideas of the motorway whilst Dundridge is blamed for everything and sent to prison where he enjoys himself reorganizing the library system.Appreciating all that he has done for her, Lady Maud marries Blott,putting him up as a Member of Parliament and they look forward to creating an heir.
