Two episodes from the early 1980s BBC drama series based on the short stories of crime writer Agatha Christie.
In 'Jane in Search of a Job', Jane Cleveland (Elizabeth Garvie) lands a job as double for the Grand Duchess of Ostrova during the latter's state visit to England.
But events become complicated when an attempt is feared on the Duchess's life and Jane finds herself framed for theft.
Can she clear her name and find out who is trying to kill the Duchess?
In 'The Manhood of Edward Robinson', mousy clerk Edward Robinson (Nicholas Farrell), who is engaged to the dominating, penny-pinching Maud (Ann Thornton), wins a substantial sum of money in a magazine competition and blows it on a sports car, which he drives to Brighton.
On the way he meets Lady Noreen (Cherie Lunghi), a glamorous jewel thief who involves him in a plot to steal a valuable necklace.
