She has started to date Keith, a latter-day Elephant Man who lives in a caravan. Brenda thinks her friend has had her head turned and counsels against getting carried away. In her experience the Elephant Man didn't have a trunk and large ears. Brenda, meanwhile, is having flashbacks to her adventures in foggy London in the 1880s.
