Episode Summary

EDIT
Mr. Fox
AIRED:
When Health Secretary Simon Wellington wins an injunction preventing newspapers from reporting an incident on Hampstead Heath in which he was allegedly mugged by two men, Charles agrees to help Wellington keep his job. But the survival strategy is threatened by the emergence of a transcript detailing what was said on the Heath that night. It looks bad for the minister until Martin demonstrates to journalists that over-heard words can have more than one meaning. Charles, however, still faces the problem of going face to face with a spin-doctor even more Machiavellian than he is - the Number 10 Press Secretary, Colin Priestley. Priestley suggests Wellington should come out to save his career. In other words: "If you're out, you're in. If you're in, you're out." Away from Westminster Alison is shepherding Jimmy Bart, a bad-boy pop star, who has promised his new record company that he's clean of drugs. But when her client starts to behave strangely Alison is herself forced to act out of character, undertaking a dangerous mission in Soho.moreless
