Doctor In The House (1946)

These four were really sub-tenants. The flat was leased by a final-year student, a pleasant fellow called Archie Broome, who had lived there during most of his time at St Swithin's and took his friends as lodgers to help out with the rent.
`We're pretty free and easy there,' he explained to me in the King George. `I hope you're not terribly particular about the time you have your meals or go to bed and that sort of thing ?'
As I had found unpunctuality for meals was taken by landladies as a personal outrage and sitting up to midnight regarded as sinful, I told my prospective landlord warmly I didn't give a damn for such formalities.
`That's good,' Archie said. `We usually kick in together for the groceries and beer and so forth, if that's all right with you. Here's the key, and you can move in when you like.'
I shifted the following afternoon. The flat was in a large, old, grimy block just by the Park, up a dark flight of stairs. I dropped my suitcases on the landing outside the door and fumbled for the key. While I was doing so the door opened.
Standing in the hallway was one of the most beautiful women I had ever seen. She was a tall blonde with a figure like a model in a dress-shop window. She wore slacks and a sweater, which sharply defined her slight curves. Taking her cigarette out with a long graceful hand, she said with great friendliness, `Hello, Richard. Come on in and make yourself at home.'
`I'm afraid ...' I began. `I mean, I was looking for a fellow called Broome, you know. ...'
`That's right,' she said. She had a slight, attractive, and unplaceable accent. `The boys are all at the hospital at the moment, but just come in anyway. Would you like a cup of tea? My name's Vera.'
