Secrets and lies review
She and Cynthia have never liked one another: Monica sees Cynthia as overly hysterical, while Cynthia suspects Monica of trying to turn Maurice against her. They gather for a visit at Cynthia's, and have tea.
Although Hortense's black family and friends figure briefly, Leigh sticks to the white British discomfort that he knows, and makes Hortense our guide to its mysteries. Maurice tells Roxanne that she has a good brain and should be in college. Cynthia asks Maurice if she can bring a "mate from work" to the party.
There aren't many people apart from Leigh who can do Britain this way but when he does, it's like a land mine planted in the heart of sitcom land. Everyone gathers for the barbecue and Maurice prepares the food.
