Put the watercress, cream, lemon juice, cayenne pepper and salt in a small saucepan and cook over low heat until the watercress is cooked.
Rub the mixture through a fine sieve into a small bowl and stir in the cheese.
Lay the oysters on a broiler pan.
Spoon the sauce equally over each oyster and sprinkle with the bread crumbs.
Place the pan under the broiler for 5 minutes or until the top is golden and bubbling.
