Dennis writes to Elsie asking her to take Jed in as a lodger. Jed arrives with his cases but Elsie refuses to take him in. She gets a letter from Linda telling her they're coming over for Christmas. Minnie takes pity on Jed and takes him in. Len returns to the Street to the news of the basins. The literary circle decide to hold the play at St Joseph's, and not at the Mission so the Over 60's Club won't get the proceeds. Albert decides to form The Mission Hall Players and put on their own play. The police show an interest in the basins. Christine talks Frank into letting her do some cleaning for him. Jed produces a receipt for the basins but it shows he bought them for only £6 10/-. Frank tells Albert he'll be in the play when he learns Christine is in it.
