Oscar's Birthday Sep 28, 2008 Edgar and Angela Faussett have just moved to Aidensfield and according to Aunt Peggy he is rolling in money and she is quite a looker. But they are also causing PC Mason a lot of problems. He apparently thinks the law doesn't apply to him and rather wants to see Mason's back than his face, and she is so impressed with the handsome constable that she uses every excuse to see him. She also claims that her life is in danger. This of course doesn't go unnoticed by Carol Cassidy who more or less considers Mason her boyfriend. It's Oscar Blaketon's birthday and the villagers have prepared a big birthday party for him. David even wants to play a birthday song for him on the pub piano. He just has to learn to play the piano first. But there might be something else to celebrate instead: Gina goes into labour during the party and gives birth to a healthy baby boy in her room at the Aidensfield Arms.
