A&O’s very own deadlock

Tulkinghorn is on the telly this week. As readers will know, the great man began his career as the faithful lawyer to Sir Leicester in Charles Dickens’ Bleak House. As viewers can see on the Beeb, while being impersonated by Charles Dance, Tulkinghorn discovers that Lady Dedlock has something to hide and will not rest until he has unearthed the secret and has her in his power.

A bit like the partners at A&O trying to find out where all their assistants are heading off to – and what they’re being paid.
