The work-shy Dr Grimsdyke is still at St Swithan's. Nurses are hitching up their skirts in the name of fashion and the dean is almost certain he is to be knighted. And then a Rolls Royce pulls up with Sir Lancelot Spratt in it. Bored with retirement he has returned to invoke a clause in St Swithan's original charter and resume work.
