After a big build-up, Matt tells David and Adam that he persuaded the Borchester Land board to approve a 40% share of the digester project - but with conditions. Borchester Land must have two members on the board of Ambridge Heat and Power, otherwise the deal's off. It's clear there's no room for negotiation, so with the blessing of Debbie and Ruth, David and Adam accept. Matt delights in telling them that he'll be one of the board members.
Brian tells Adam he's sorry he couldn't be involved in the negotiations but he'll do what he can in the future.
Will's upset to learn that people are gossiping about the red kite poisoning. Tom reassures him that, apart from the odd idiot, people are very supportive. Tom's pleased with what he sees at 1, The Green, and is confident Will's a better landlord than the Aldridges.
Despite Will's protests, Matt suggests that Will's responsible for the poisoned kite. To Will's frustration, Matt assures Will that he's prepared to back Will's denial to the hilt - as long as it doesn't happen again.
