Denholm is informed of a police presence at the office, causing him to commit suicide. Roy asks Moss to "pimp" the vibrate setting on his mobile phone because it is so weak, and then is mortified to find an internet site that predicts his date of death to be 3pm on the date of Denholm's funeral. Despite reassurances from Moss and Jen, he cannot help but worry. Denholm's successor then reveals he despises the IT department and would love to see them fired. At the funeral, Roy causes a scene as his mobile phone vibrates heavily, believing he is dying. Denolm's successor threatens to fire Moss, Roy and Jen, but Denholm's estranged son and natural successor to Reynholm Industries, Douglas (Played by Matt Berry), bursts into the funeral and takes over the company. It turns out that he loves the IT department, and their jobs are saved. Jen takes up smoking again after watching Denholm advertise them on his funeral video.
