He also in­ves­ti­gates how the kitchen was trans­formed with the ad­vent of gas cook­ers, as more com­plex meals be­came the norm. Ma­teo and Va­le­rio ex­hume Ger­mán’s corpse and cor­rob­o­rate that he was also murdered by Ledesma. Zúniga takes ad­van­tage of the plague, famine and pop­u­lar up­ris­ings to ne­go­ti­ate with the As­sis­tant and per­suade him to open the city’s har­bour, to al­low the fleet from Amer­ica to un­load the ship­ments. the­couri­er­magazine Based on the Co­de­name Vil­lanelle novel­las by Luke Jen­nings, it stars Oh as the epony­mous Eve, a whip-smart MI5 se­cu­rity of­fi­cer whose deskbound job has so far failed to live up to her fan­tasies of be­ing a spy. How­ever, her life is about to get a lot more ex­cit­ing as she’s given task of pro­tect­ing the only wit­ness to the mur­der of a Rus­sian politi­cian. The host is joined by ac­tor Martin Clunes, who stars as Sir Pitt Craw­ley in ITV’S lav­ish new pe­riod drama Van­ity Fair. Bri­tish sprinter Dina Asher-smith, who won three gold medals at the re­cent Euro­pean Ath­let­ics Cham­pi­onships in Ber­lin, also drops by, along with singer­song­writer Josh Groban. Med­i­cal staff use bat­tle­field dress­ings to try to save the life of a man who’s in dan­ger of bleed­ing to death. Mean­while, Nine-year-old Ar-rayyan has been hit by a car and has a nasty head in­jury. And a fall leaves sep­tu­a­ge­nar­ian Bon­nie with a se­verely frac­tured an­kle.
