Whirly faces a tribunal where she denies putting Ipecac in Gunnell's drink. Jenny Muirhead,the only other girl on the course,speaks up for her but naively lets her down though fortunately the principled Professor Ritchie acts as her advocate and ensures she is not expelled. Jenny's parents,the wealthy Lord and Lady Muirhead,give James employment at their dog kennels but James and Ritchie are appalled to find that they are Fascist supporters who have Mrs Munro's Jewish lover Oskar arrested for challenging them. Their pro-Aryan beliefs also extend to an insistence on a pure bloodline in their animals,allowing the weakest to die and Ritchie and James rescue a sick dog by threatening to expose the bitchy Lady Muirhead's affair with her chief dog handler. As the term ends Whirly,McAloon and James learn that they have all passed their exams and are ready to help Professor Ritchie examine a sick elephant. Written by

Professor Quintin Gunnell
Some of my fellow professors were against the intake of women here at the college, but I think we have to be forward-looking.
Lord Douglas Muirhead
Quite, I'm often told that equality is the coming thing.
Lady Verity Muirhead
Although I think the call for equality with *men* does set the bar rather low.
