MULBERRY

What were the ideas that the writers had for ending the MULBERRY series?

It is speculated, we have heard, that when Miss Farnaby dies, she crosses the bridge (the one shown at the opening of the programs) and walks towards Mulberry, who is waiting for her at the other side.

ARE YOU BEING SERVED?

When they have lunch, what is toad in the hole and can it really be made???

Toad-in-the-hole is a classic English dish consisting of sausage cooked in a batter. Sounds a bit like an English version of our corn dog, doesn't it?
