In Peter Frame and Veronica, David Pulman feels that Peter Frame needs a redefining of his job description and intends to use the rest of the department to make it happen. Frame’s latest project involves the possible sponsorship of a symphony orchestra – it would be a really money pit and could be a disaster – an outcome David wouldn’t mind at all. His real idea is to put Peter in charge of special projects and move Veronica (who is asking for a raise) sideways into doing more of the admin side of Peter’s job.
Richard, who is developing a major thing for Veronica, finds himself dragged into Pulman’s plan. Veronica isn’t keen on her new title of Administrative Assistant and would prefer Administration Executive – she gets her way – after all she knows where the bodies are buried (metaphorically speaking).
At the heart of every episode is the sneaky, ever so polite back stabbing and double dealing that mostly seems to give Pulman more power.
