Pauline's first 2 husbands had died under suspicious circumstances and she was trying to get Del to take out life insurance and started poisoning him. Del complained of a dicky tummy. In the end Del, Rodney and Grandad went to Clacton on Sea, Essex for almost a week. Del left Pauline a note saying "My dearest darling Pauline. The engagement is off, the wedding is off and as you can see from this letter I'm off. I'll give your 5 days to get out of the flat and do not ever come back you money grabbing old murderess".
