Yellow Jack Oct 15, 1972 A strange and enigmatic woman called Indigo Jones comes onboard the Charlotte Rhodes, with an offer for James Onedin. Her ship, the Samantha, is damaged, anchored off Cork, and she wishes him to bring her home. However, when he enquires about the cargo the ship is carrying, she becomes evasive. When pushed though, she does admit that the ship carried fever. As usual, profit blinds James Onedin, and he agrees to help the ship home, that she may discharge her cargo and return for another shipment without delay. He is also more than interested in how the young lady managed to get shipments of guano out of South America without paying the high export duties. She will not say, of course, but he plans to find out. Anne has already been dismissed from her post at the shop, due to no fault of her own, just that she is a woman, and no-one will work with her as she tries to do a man's job. Her father urges her to go back to James, but she is as stubborn as he, and refuses. James enlists Alber

Survivor Oct 22, 1972 James has chartered a tea-clipper, the Osiris, in an attempt to get the first of the new tea crop home before anyone else, and so reap, as ever, a healthy profit. Albert has a new lady in his life, a dancehall singer called Carrie, who sees him as a way to better herself, get some money and start a new life. He is marked in this tryst by the ever-watchful Fogarty, mindful of a chance to blacken Fraser's name and use it against Elizabeth if he should need to, or indeed, the Onedin Line. Or perhaps as leverage when he needs to encourage Fraser to build the Golden Nugget to the shareholders' specifications. At sea, the Osiris comes across a floating lifeboat, the men within it showing little of life, but one still alive. He is an old man, who babbles in his stupor. He is in fact quoting scripture, from Revelations, and the men see it as a bad omen, a warning of dire events to come. When he regains consciousness, the old man gives his name as John Hennessy, mate on a coalship that he

Coffin Ship Oct 29, 1972 The Charlotte Rhodes is caught in a storm, and Baines recommends they jettison cargo to enable them to outrun the tempest, but James refuses to lose profit, and they have to run against the storm. Back in Liverpool, Baines visits her sister, who was driven out of her home during the Yellow Jack fever. She is now living with her family in much reduced circumstances, and Baines promises to get her out of there. He requests a loan from James, but is turned down, and for once Baines begins to see that all the ill fortune that has befallen him is down to James Onedin and his eternal greed. Another rift is developing in the network that holds James Onedin's world together, and he is coming close to losing one of the only friends he has in the world, and a man upon whom he depends more than he would ever say. Elizabeth goes to visit Carrie, the dancehall singer, but does not tell her that she is Albert's wife. She pretends that she too has been seeing Fraser, but has only just found out tha

‘Frisco Bound Nov 12, 1972 Elizabeth tells Albert she knows of his dalliance with Carrie Harris, and that she has been to see her. As their sniping and arguments escalate, she tells him that she is thinking of leaving him. James is heading for Frisco (San Francisco) by way of the dreaded Horn (Cape Horn), a dangerous passage feared by sailors, and with good cause. But it does afford a much faster transit time to the Americas. Albert decides to go along, to chart out the voyage and see how he would build a steamship to make the trip. The new apprentice turns up, too: the son of the head of the board of enquiry. But he is not at all dressed for the trip, and David Teale obviously has different ideas to James and Baines as to what he will be doing onboard the ship! He is soon disabused of these notions, the top hat and frock coat exchanged for seaman's garb, his pretty hands cut and chapped, the realities of life at sea making themselves known in no uncertain terms! Albert is concerned about the unnecessarily h

Beyond The Upper Sea Nov 19, 1972 Fraser is entertaining a prospective backer for his steamship, a representative from Turkey, who invites him to his country to see an engine they have built there. Albert is anxious to go, but James is annoyed, left behind and with the project seemingly back a step. Albert tells him though that this will push the project forward, not back, and seeing his chance James offers to go with Albert. Anne goes too, but Elizabeth stays behind with William, again waving farewell to her husband, a position she swore from the start she would never find herself in. Emma Callon is suspicious as to why Fraser and Onedin are going to Turkey, and directs her fiancé to find out. Cracks are appearing in the engagement of she and Daniel already, as he declares his desire for children and she wants more than just that out of marriage. She wants to hold back on setting the date, anxious no doubt to enjoy what she can of her freedom before she has to settle down. Daniel goes to visit Elizabeth, yet again,

An Inch Of Candle Nov 26, 1972 The Charlotte Rhodes comes across a seemingly abandoned ship, the Maria da Gloria, and James goes onboard to explore her. He finds the ship untended, crewless and her cargo ruined. He sets to jettisoning the spoiled sugar and taking the ship in tow for salvage. On one of her visits to Anne, Elizabeth realises that Anne is pregnant, and though James is sinking every penny into regaining control of the Onedin Line Steamship Company, Elizabeth tells her that she must get out of the warehouse and into a proper house. Once Robert finds out --- and then Sarah, of course --- there's little chance of the secret remaining so any more. Sarah does not take the news well though, seeing their chances of her son inheriting the company on James' retirement or death disappear. James of course is delighted --- an heir at last to his shipping empire! Naturally, the needs of a mother-to-be soon begin to make themselves known on the shipowner, and Elizabeth wastes no time trying to convince him to move i

Goodbye, Goodbye Dec 3, 1972 Anne is given the despairing news that she can never have a child, for to do so would be to cause her own death. She is devastated, but has little intention of telling her husband, who longs for a son. James, meanwhile, is away at sea in Zanzibar. He is attempting to sell his goods to the sheikh there, and impressing him with his knowledge of their customs and some quotations from the Koran, which always goes a long way towards changing the minds of the Muslim from seeing their counterpart as infidel to welcoming him as brother, or at least kindred spirit. Robert, meanwhile, is approached by Mitchell, a tea merchant who is also a shareholder in the Onedin Line Steamship Company. He is not very happy with his investment, and offers his shares to the highest bidder. It just so happens that he has 5000 shares, which represents the five percent James needs to regain control of the company. In an effort to gain time, Elizabeth explains to Mitchell that it is James she needs to speak to, an
