UK Super Challenge: Artistically updated version of the original Mrs. White; now given a body.

Master Detective: Mrs. Blanche White has aged drastically again, being a long serving housekeeper of Boddy Manor over the course of years. She claims to have seen many wars come and go and gets an eye squint from spying in keyholes.
