What is the mystery of Mrs Thingy?
One of the most delightful little quirks of Kingdom is the mystery of Mrs Thingy, what it is that makes Peter run for cover the nanosecond he catches a glimpse of the shopping trolley towing, grey haired old lovely,
I offer three possible reasons;
1. Peter once ran over Mrs Thingy’s cat and he is panged with guilt and realises that if he ever make eye contact with the dear old gal he will uncontrollably confess the dark deed.
2. Peter is working on a case with the local Market Shipbrough constabulary which has identified Mrs Thingy as head of the local crime syndicate and when ever he sees her she is in fact making deliveries of large shipments of crack cocaine to the local tea room using her bullet proof shopping trolley, Peter has to hide when he sees her as she has let it be know she will ‘Pop a cap in his ass’.
3. Mrs Thingy is the illegitimate love child of Kings George 6th and Joyce Grenfell, and Peter holds this information knowing that if it got out the whole fabric of the British monarchy would collapse and the seat of power would shift from Buckingham palace in London to Rose Cottage, Market Shipbrough – such pressure that one mortal man should bear
I look forward to eventually knowing what the mystery is ..or do I ?
