Jonty de Wolfe
aka: Jonty Flaps de Wolfe Vice Chancellor. Played by: Andy Nyman
Jonty de Wolfe is the straight talking Vice Chancellor of Kirke University. He wants to do what he sees as best for Kirke, no matter how surreal or morally dubious it is.
aka: Professor Matthew Beer Professor of English Literature. Played by: Joseph Millson
Described by Jonty as "the laziest shit we have", Professor Matt Beer from English Literature is an unrepentant womaniser who sees the female pupils at Kirke as targets for him to shag.
aka: Dr. Imogen Penelope Moffat Senior Lecturer in Mathematics. Played by: Lisa Jackson
Imogen recently got promoted to senior lecturer in Mathematics after her book, The Joy of Zero, became a hit. She is now one of Jonty's favourites as her book is making the university money and bringing in the pupils. However, she is having problems writing a follow-up.
Post grad English Literature student and sportsman. Played by: Jonathan Bailey
A post-graduate student, nominally Matt's teaching assistant, but more significantly an athlete with serious international potential. Cute, bouncy and allegedly studying English Literature, Flatpack has in fact only read six books since the age of ten; three about sports science (twice each). For Jonty, however, he brings star quality as a future Olympic hopeful and is therefore indispensible.
Accomodations Officer. Played by: Sara Pascoe
Nicole is an Accomodations Officer, in charge of seeing that the pupils of Kirke are fully at home. Unfortunately she is a bit incompetent, providing advice which is often wrong or totally made up on the spot, and even lying on her CV about having GCSE maths.
University Accountant. Played by: Will Adamsdale
Jason is one of Kirke's accountants and thus is in charge of the money that pours in and flows out of Kirke. However, following an error made with the university's payroll, he now has to try and get over £2,000,000 from nearly 400 members staff who do not want to give it back.
Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering. Played by: Dolly Wells
Mechanical engineering lecturer and seemingly devoted dictaphone user Lydia can be best described by her old schoolgirl nickname - "Big Shit" - because she was a big shit and does big shits. She is somewhat stuck up, does not care at all for the concerns of Matt, and hates Imogen's recent successes.
Georgina 'George' Bryan
Restructuring guru. Played by: Katherine Ryan
Canadian troubleshooter - or troublemaker as far as Jonty's concerned - she head of the ruthless consultancy team tasked with 'restructuring' Kirke after Jason's accounting error. Cold-hearted and cleavage-flaunting, George is scarily ambitious.
