Dr Eleanor Gillespie arrives at the school to supervise the A Level Maths exam and is immediately mistaken for a specialist by the headmaster who is having stomach problems. Slatt hopes star pupil Edward Arthur will do the school proud but after Slatt has accidentally killed the boy's pet rabbit and put his pop idol in hospital - by ringing him on his car mobile asking for a good luck message and causing a crash - Edward loses all interest in school subjects. Dr Gillespie threatens to ruin Slatt's career. Can the headmaster's bowel movement perhaps miraculously save him? - Written by don @ minifie-1 [2]
