Harry pulls off another publicity masterstroke when he arranges for legendary Sherlock Holmes author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to attend a book signing in his store.



Harry, who’s been having nightmares and hallucinations, and Rose enjoy lunch with Sir Arthur and his American companion, Rex Crennell, a spiritual medium. As conversation drifts to Harry’s recent near death experience – it isn’t long before talk turns to the spiritualist movement.



When Rex offers to hold a séance for the staff in the store, Harry feels conflicted. He knows he needs to keep his star guest Sir Arthur happy, and for the store to be at the forefront of progress, but he himself isn’t keen on the idea. Though, somewhat reluctantly, he agrees.

 

However, the séance comes to a halt when a male force ‘pushes’ itself disturbingly onto Rex, and an ominous mood descends on the room. Rex tells Harry he felt the malicious spirit drawn to him. Harry is dismissive, but Lois is concerned. She clearly has something on her mind…

 

Meanwhile, Agnes undertakes a new role in ladies’ fashion and Henri is more than happy to help. Their friendship takes an unexpected turn when they share a sensual, sudden and secret kiss…
