It’s the season finale! Comedian Lisa Brooke is here for the rags to riches tale of Edward Baines, the newspaperman who had the distinction of being burned in effigy by his fellow citizens not once, but twice. Come for the accusations of bastardy… stay for the silliest name in British history since Ralph Roister Doister.
