He and Bert fell out after he chose the group's newest leading light Dominic to play the lead in The Student Prince, and Bert accused him of accepting a bribe from Dominic before resigning from the society. They were reconciled when Dominic was injured and Paul had to coax Bert into taking the part after all. They reunited in series 5 for a production of Richard III, with Bert in the title role. This time Jean was left fuming when Cynthia was cast as Richard's wife. In series 9 Paul was in prison for embezzlement and persuaded Bert to put on a production of MacBeth inside, which he used as a cover to escape. However, he was soon recaptured.
