It’s babysitting time for Katie, and you can imagine that’s not a good combination with her jinxing. And then a mysterious intruder adds to the problem.

The first test of the Valley of Shining Mist is for Debbie to overcome her infamous stammer. We should have guessed.

Cinderella Smith is beginning to realise just how difficult it is going to be to hide her modelling from her cruel cousins – the job itself is plastering her face everywhere.

Not even the Misery House nurse cares about the sick Hilda, so it’s up to the girls to get help. And it arrives in the form of a gypsy girl named Jessie who can virtually waltz in and out of Misery House when she wants to – now that says something about its security. And Jessie’s giving Miss Ball even more cheek than Merry!

Poor blind Barbie is still undergoing her humiliating punishment. Then things begin to look up, but not for long – Barbie ends this episode in trouble with the law.

A bully teacher is a new enemy for Julie and the Green People, and she gets off to a good start by taking the necklace Julie uses to communicate with them. And now Moura’s been captured by the soldiers.

In “Daddy’s Darling”, Daddy is being booed and hissed for his treatment of the Hope children but it does nothing to soften his attitude. As far as he is concerned, all the love he has is reserved for his darling. And now they’ve run away because of him. So now the story is heading towards its climax and ending.

Flo’s kind nature is now proving good PR for her brother Greg, whose arrogance has not made him popular. But he doesn’t look like he is softening – until Flo finds he has left flowers on their parents’ grave.

In Dora Dogsbody, Mrs Siddons demonstrates her meanness when she tries to put a dog down because his owner has defaulted on the bill and Dora is trying to save him. It turns out the dog’s habit of pinching the mail was to blame. And we are informed Mrs Siddons will get a lesson about meanness next week. But we bet it won’t last long.

  1. Has anyone noticed that the heroine in The Green People has the same surname as the villainess in Waves of Fear? Marlow is a pretty unusual surname to use, which has me wondering if it’s the same writer.
