Lord Silton is a character from Vault Of Death. He is the President of the Bank of England.
Dinner at Creighton-Ward Manor
Lady Penelope invites Lord Silton to dinner at Creighton-Ward Manor. While he is there, he receives an emergency call from the Bank.
When Lady Penelope asked if the Bank was being robbed, Parker dropped the coffee all down Lord Silton's suit in shock, thinking it is his old friend Light-Fingered Fred breaking in.
Back to the Bank
After a hair raising trip back to London with Lady Penelope driving FAB 1, Lord Silton is quickly asked by Lovegrove for the electronic key. Confused at first, Silton realises, rather sheepishly, that he left it behind at Creighton-Ward Manor, especially since he earlier boasted that his case (containing the electronic key) will never leave his side! However, Lord Silton gets quite shocked to see Parker take seconds to break into the vault with one of Lady Penelope's hair pins. He tells Lovegrove, "we would be better off with the old safe, we can't have people breaking-in with hair pins".
- The same puppet makes a cameo appearance as a journalist aboard the Atomic Irrigation Station Tour Bus in The Mighty Atom. In Danger at Ocean Deep it can be seen on the platform at the launching of Ocean Pioneer II, and in The Man From MI.5 as a passenger on board Fireflash. It appears twice in The Duchess Assignment: first as a gambler at the casino, and again at the London Air Display as Percy.
