Put yourself in Elizabeth’s* shoes.
You are an elderly pensioner. You were mugged recently and broke your shoulder. You’re just now being discharged from hospital. You still feel a bit shaky, if you’re honest. You’re going back to an empty house. You have no family living nearby. There’s no fresh milk in the fridge. You’re a bit nervous about the journey home.
In such a case, it’s likely you’d also be pleased to see Francesca Dawkes.
