Greg Davies will be in all eight episodes. The new series launches with a double-bill. The first sees Maven's annual Arbiter ceremony goes catastrophically wrong when the historic wig used to crown him suddenly becomes reanimated. Time is of the essence, meanwhile, in the second helping as Maven races against the clocks to get his accounts done in time. The only problem is, Jinsy's ink-addicted accountants have gone feral, forcing him to strike a deal with the Chief Accountant – played by Ben Miller – involving his daughter, Berpetta (also Miller).
