‘Allo ‘Allo! is a British sitcom television series created by David Croft and Jeremy Lloyd, starring Gorden Kaye, and originally broadcast on BBC One.
Edith is enjoying her new-found status as a rich widow, since the reading of René’s will leaves almost everything to her. The British Airmen disguise themselves as nuns and hide out in the nearby convent. Gruber is summoned to the Gestapo headquarters to identify the real painting of the Fallen Madonna from two forgeries, and blackmailed into keeping quiet about his task.
Edith finds Rene’s will in a cuckoo clock in this episode, despite stating in The Funeral (S01E05) (the episode after his “death”) that she had already found it in the bureau of her mother’s dressing room (although upon hearing the news, Rene said that there might be another one).
Anachronism: As Rene peruses the business cards procured by Edith during her jaunt, he declares one of the cards is for Dyno-Rod, a company which was not founded until 1963.
