After her cover was blown during her final mission, she founded Drake Private Detectives, Toronto’s first all-female detective agency. With her associate Trudy Clarke, the duo crack cases that the traditional detective agencies can’t.

10pm FIND IT, FIX IT, DRIVE IT Reality - Automotive restorers Henry Cole and Sam Lovegrove fix up beautiful antique vehicles and test drive them on difficult locales. Be it motorcycles, ambulances or tractors, Cole and Lovegrove are up to the challenge.

Each episode starts with Henry and Sam looking for their chosen vehicle for the restoration challenge.  As they labor through the restoration process, Henry and Sam can’t help themselves from reflecting on the history of each vehicle, with plenty of time for competitive banter between the two eccentric hosts. When they are satisfied with their efforts, the hosts test out their restored vehicles on the open road, whether it’s traversing the hills of Wales or roaring through the legendary Brooklands Race Track. Each episode of the series offers an in-depth, and often satirical, journey into the world of automotive restoration. 

In this episode, Henry and Sam rebuild a classic car from the golden age of British motor racing — a 1930s Wolseley Hornet roadster. It's a car that's very close to Sam's heart.
