Barchester TowersThe nasty Mr Slope arrives in Barchester, the new hen-pecked bishop's chaplain. He starts throwing his weight around and annoys just about everybody, but specially Eleanor who he tries to woo, and therefore Mr Harding and his fans. More too-ing and fro-ing over the appointment as warden to Hiram's hospital, and when the incumbent dean dies, there's a deanery up for grabs too!

Great stuff, lots of clerical intrigue and maneuvering with some great characters, including bossy Mrs Bishop, the evilly shallow Signora and Slope himself of course!
