In the subsequent fall out from the University's dealings with a discredited African Dictator, it is decided to rebrand and relaunch the University. The first thing to do is sack the Vice Chancellor and ease Roland Chubb in. This makes Jim's position very tenuous, but Roland determines to get him out. He sneakily offers Karen the Deanship - is this the end of Jim Blunt?

Starring Sophie Thompson and Jonathan Keeble.
