From the audio version (and having gotten just a bit further than this), I'm not actually sure this is Miss Silver. I thought so at first, too, but now my feeling is this might actually be our (first) victim.

Hm, .... I'm not much further, yet. First impression ticked all the Miss Silver boxes for me:

- Irritated airways: Check.
- Annoying: Check.
- Interested in crime/trials: Check.

To be fair, there was no knitting, so you're probably right in reserving judgment. ;)
Diana Bishop in the audio reads her with a working class accent (and not in Miss Silver's voice, which is very recognizable in the DB audios), and in the ensuing conversation, the woman is clearly afraid of her traveling companion. Doesn't spell Miss Silver to me at all ... (ETA: In fact, it's the woman's obvious fear of her traveling companion which makes me think "victim" here.)

Though the things you list were, of course, what had made me wonder initially, too.

Well, thank goodness I decided to discount catches for the drinking game. I wouldn't want to start off with the wrong character! :D

I'm glad I decided to start listening to this all over, in any event. I began last night but found I couldn't focus ... and it turned out I had actually caught none of this then!
Mystery solved (at the chapter break of ch.s 2 and 3): Definitely not Miss Silver.

Yup. Just got there, too. Now I have her down as a suspect. ;D

Ar first I thought too that this is Miss Silver. But then everything about this woman was so anti-Miss Silver, it just didn´t fit.

And just give the word BT and I will pop open the wine. But preferably not before 8 o´clock in the evening ;D .

No coughing so far, thank goodness! ;D
