Tonight's play is by Patrick Hamilton, who also wrote Gaslight, the sinister Victorian melodrama which proved so popular with viewers. The hero of both plays is Inspector Rough, whose methods and character are based on those of a real-life detective named Whicher, who was concerned with two famous Victorian mysteries-the Tichbome and the Constance Kent cases. Indeed, it was the Kent case which suggested to Hamilton the main situation of The Governess: the disappearance of a little boy from his home-in this play the Drew household, with its atmosphere of unhappiness and suspicion. At the centre of its tensions is Miss Fry, the governess (Dulcie Gray), who has a strange relationship with her employer, the bullying Mr. Drew (William Devlin), and an even stranger one with her precocious pupil, Ellen, who is given to dreams and to sleep-walking. The mystery is only unravelled when Inspector Rough (Edward Chapman) appears on the scene, with manners which justify his name, but really hide a gentler outlook on life.

John Betjeman visits Syon House in Middlesex.
The home of the Duke of Northumberland, Syon is the last great country house left in London. The eighteenth-century interior is the work of the famous architect Robert Adam, who designed even the carpets, furniture, and doorknobs. The overall grandeur and elegance of design make this the finest sequence of Adam rooms to be found in England.
