Tulkinghorn has discovered an amazing fact about John Cleese: he walked through a gateway into a third dimension while filming Clockwise in 1985 only to re-emerge in 2003 at Lovells, just in time to fight the firm's partnership elections. Cleese, who runs a highy-rated corporate insurance practice at Lovells, has made it through to the final round of voting, where he will need all his slapstick charms to beat corporate heavyweight Hugh Nineham and incumbent Andrew Walker. Cleese's alter ego John Young, meanwhile, was catapulted back in time to the 1980s, ageing horribly over the past two decades. His only consolation? A starring role opposite Lucy Liu in the latest Charlie's Angels film. On balance, Tulkinghorn would also take that deal.
