I think the writers couldn't have her being too rich...

They never showed her uncle "GIVING HER THE HOUSE".

This way they used "IT" as another show...{The Apartment}.

The first couple of times that I saw this I wondered what happen.

But they say nothing else about this.

Poor Betty !

I think the writer's probably didn't pay much attention to inconsistant story lines. That's probably why the staff ended up at Millstone Maner when they retired instead of the Grace Brother's Staff Home.

What's in a name? The Grace Brothers Staff Home really became Millstone Manor where they were the Staff.

I think Mrs. Slocombe's uncle finally got wise to all the shenanigans and he pulled his offer of giving her a house. Maybe the house was in the USA and Mrs. S. couldn't bear to leave Grace Brothers and England and her pals!

I always assumed that Ol' Wendle discovered the plan of his niece and her crafty set of pals and just called the whole thing off. Either that, or it got caught on fire by Mr.Goldberg.

So, if your postulate is true, then Mrs. Slocombe was moving from pub to pub . Maybe its just semantics!

In the begining of the series, we learn that from time to time, Mr. Humphries's Mother stays with him. Then as the series progresses, It's seems he's living with his mother. What happened to his house ?

So the "Is He or Isn't He" thread is about him living with his mother?

Did Mr. and Mrs. Slocombe ever get divorced ???? We know they weren't living together but did you ever hear the word "DIVORCE".
Then during one eppy (yes, it's too early in the morning for my brain to be working !!!) Peacock mentions "If Mrs. Slocombe was a customer, what would catch her attention?" to which Lucas replies... "Her husband buying his girlfriend a present."

Maybe they just went their seperate ways and didn't bother with the legal stuff ? Good question though.

It must be too early for me as well, because I don't even remember that line at all, lol. I'm sure I've heard it though.
