When the local councillor dies Susan, calling herself Barrington-Harper to attain gravitas, runs as an independent councillor, on issues of street cleaning and speed bumps. She insists on Ben's support but he is more concerned with trying to win the Times Crossword, something at which Roger is very good. Eventually he is pleased to see the name Harper amongst the winners but it turns out that Roger submitted his winning entry in Abi's name. Michael meanwhile acquires a pet tarantula, which he calls Nicola. There is consternation when Nicola disappears - especially as she is pregnant.
