Series 1, Episode 5 - Kali The Genetic Engineer
Nelson's effete French penfriend Christian arrives for a visit and starts behaving uncharacteristically badly, exhibiting mood swings and frothing at the mouth. Yes, it seems Christian has rabies. Nelson and Marion must contain the disease and save their friends.
Destiny discovers that her gorgeous new boyfriend Archie is in fact a pimp organised by her owner Gary to get Destiny to produce some pedigree pups. Destiny decides to teach Gary a lesson.
When Kali is caught up in a pigeon cull, she resolves to take over the world and take revenge on humankind by creating the pigeox - half pigeon, half fox. All she needs to bring her invention to life is a bit of help from a passing fox, like Nelson, or, failing that, his vicious friend Vince.
Song: My Destiny - Sung by Nelson, stopped by Destiny.
Written by Adam Miller.
Some sources give this episode the unofficial title Rabies.
