"My father says you either love him or hate him, and often both at the same time."
Vicky Prentiss, on Churchill.[src]

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom during World War II. He was also an officer in the British Army, a historian, and later, a Nobel Prize-winner in literature.


In May 1916, while a member of Parliament and an officer in the British Army, Churchill was the guest of honor at a dinner party in Oxford, England. His hosts had also invited Helen Seymour, who brought her house guests, Indiana Jones and Vicky Prentiss.[1]

At the dinner, Churchill brought up his role in trying to secure the right to vote for British soldiers serving at the front in World War I to strengthen British democracy, to the approval of his hostess. Prentiss then pointed out that half the population of the country couldn't vote: women. While Jones tried to divert the conversation onto other topics, Churchill and Prentiss verbally sparred over the issue of women's suffrage. Finally, Prentiss accidentally hit her silverware, which catapulted her trifle onto Churchill's head. Embarrassed, Prentiss quickly excused herself from the dinner. Amused, Churchill remarked that Prentiss was a very spirited young lady, wiped off the dessert, and the dinner continued.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The role of Winston Churchill was portrayed by Julian Fellowes in "London, May 1916".[1]

A number of people who've previously encountered Indy attended the Paris Peace Conference in Paris, May 1919 but do not appear in the episode itself, including Winston Churchill.
