Episode notes

The “Reading Between The Lines” team is back with the MacPeevers again this week, as the man of the house makes a comedic attempt to join the masons. 

This story, expertly read by “Friend” Production Editor Judey, is laced with the same good-natured humour first encountered in our festive episode (“The MacPeevers’ Christmas Cards”) — but it also gives Iain, Judey, Abbie and Barry a little insight into the inner workings of the ancient, clandestine order. 

That’s if Mr MacPeever’s account is to be believed!
