The Casebook Of Inspector Steine, Episode 5 - Room At The Top
The publication of Nancy Mitford's famous book Noblesse Oblige sparks awareness of linguistic class indicators in Brighton Police Station at precisely the moment a man claiming to be 'Lord Melamine' tries to interest Inspector Steine in buying some gold bricks at an amazing knock-down price.
Is this toff what he appears to be? If he's so high-born, why does he keep using the words 'toilet', 'serviette', 'la-di-da' and 'mental'?
With Mark Heap as Melamine.
