In Veronica and Mr Pulman Dr Ducker’s psychological evaluation is in and it’s not looking good for David Pulman. Ducker has remarked that there is too much criticism downward and not enough upward. The chairman insists that David can no longer criticise the department but they must have regular sessions where they criticise him. What Eve, Richard and Co haven’t counted on is that the criticism starts at the bottom and they too are in the firing line.
Naturally enough it’s not long before everyone realises that the game can be played to their own ends. Of course the biggest player of all is Pulman himself.
Meanwhile it looks like Veronica and Richard might finally be getting somewhere with their on-off relationship.
Each episode of The Organization is like a game of chess, all the players pieces on the board, advancing or retreating as needs arise, with Pulman as the King directing the action. Even if not everyone realises it!
