1924 and Tommy is marrying Grace Burgess in a lavish society wedding whose guests include red-coated army officers invited by Grace - much to the annoyance of Tommy's family. Arthur makes an awkward speech and Lizzie has cause for anger. A surprise visitor is Russian princess Tatiana Petrovna, whose wedding gift is a considerable sum of money which will be paid if Tommy supplies arms to a group of exiled white Russians. With Tommy now a seemingly respectable businessman with a charitable foundation Grace is uneasy about his acceptance, especially when another murder takes place, whilst Polly has an admirer.

When Tommy leans into Polly and says, "Johnny's kaired a dog," etc, and the subtitles translate it, he's speaking genuine Angloromani, a language combining aspects of English and Romani which is spoken by the Romani people in the United Kingdom, Australia, the United States, and South Africa.
