Heir Hunters - Series 3 - Watkinson/Clarke


The heir hunters once again seek out families entitled to inherit the estates of people who have died without a will. Hilda Watkinson died in 2008. A widow, everyone knew her as Babs. After her husband died she sold their high street flat, and the team at Fraser and Fraser feels that hunting down her heirs could be a lucrative move. Babs was one of ten children, and as the family tree grows rapidly, more potential heirs appear. Does the team have the resources and energy to sign them up before the competition moves in? As the chase hots up the team is stretched to breaking point. Elsewhere, independent heir hunter Cat Whiteaway is on the case of Bertha Clarke, a widow who died leaving an unclaimed estate of 21,000 pounds. As Cat works her way through the records, she discovers that Bertha may have been an illegitimate child. Soon the investigation leads into the notorious infirmaries and workhouses of London's impoverished East End, where many young mothers were forced to make the most agonising decision of their lives.
