Vice Chancellor of Kirke University, Jonty De Wolfe (Andy Nyman, Dead Set) swells his puffed-up chest as he surveys his crumbling kingdom. Huge debts, government cuts, the impending arrival of an icy management consultant, falling student numbers and lazy heads of department mean that his dream of dragging concrete Kirke up to red-brick status is getting harder and harder.
He's tried talking a troubled student into committing suicide, he's locked his bank manager in a stationery cupboard for being a Gaylord, and he's lost his owl. But all is not lost - for his lovely Senior Maths Lecturer Imogen Moffatt (Lisa Jackson) has written a best-selling 'Mathsbuster' and Jonty wants his staff to follow her example - even the perennially under-achieving English Professor and serial seducer Matt Beer (Joseph Millson). And so starts a new academic year...
The series, from the makers of Green Wing and Smack the Pony, features an ensemble cast, including Joseph Millson (Quantum of Solace), Sara Pascoe (Free Agents), Will Adamsdale (Perrier Award Winner for Jackson's Way), Jonathan Bailey (Off the Hook), Dolly Wells (Star Stories) and Lisa Jackson (Bright Young Things) and introduces Katherine Ryan.

The show is a delight and whilst comparisons with Green Wing are inevitable (set in a labyrinthine institution which many have experienced but few understand the workings of, a picaresque central character (Matt Beer) with a strong supporting cast, beautifully observed asides etc.) it must be recognised as a standalone work. Some characters get more of a bite of the cherry than others, Lydia Tennant had considerably greater scope than actually was made use of, Flatpack only became two-and-a-half dimensional in the final episodes but hopefully they will develop in the next series (I have to assume that there will be a second series as life without one will be a bleak prospect).
Overall the writing was immaculate and the cast managed to pull huge amounts from their scripts. For fans of Green Wing this is a natural choice and for those who are of the opinion that British comedy is in decline this series is reason to take heart. I hope beyond measure that the commissioning editors out there realise what a gem they have.
I had seen a few episodes of this on TV and enjoyed every second, so bought the DVD to catch up on the rest of the episodes. It arrived in perfect condition fully sealed immediately after ordering, which I was very impressed with.
I have no idea why there was never a follow up series and I hope at some point there is, because this is the most underrated series I have ever watched in my life!
Absolutley perfectly casted and performed , Particularly Andy Nyman ( as the jaw droppingly appaling Jonty De Wolfe, Joseph Milsson & the first major screen roles for Katherine Ryan and Sara Pascoe.
This series had the briliance to make me laugh, cry and long for the next episode, I absolutley loved and cared about all of the characters and could not believe it was cancelled after one series- especially when you look at the amount of junk that channel 4 turn out for series after series.
Incidentally, the whole cast song & dance routine to the The Bangles "Eternal Flame"in the last episodeis probably one of the most joyous and uplifting six minutes of television I have ever seen - I would give Campus 10 stars if I could- Come on Victoria - I know you must have been stung badly by this experience, but please, write something as good as this again - quality television is back in vogue and we desperatley need comedy wrtiers of oyur calibre.
At first I found it hard to get into, Jonte, despite having Sues humour, was repelling for me, he came across too psychopathic and dangerous which ruined some of the jokes, also, the main characters (Matt Beer, Imogen Moffat) seemed too surreal and strange & I couldn't relate to them (unlike Caroline, Mac and Guy, who had some degree of normality) - but the sketches involving the supporting cast carried these episodes through.
As the show went on Jonte became bearable and a story-line starts to develop between the still 2 dimensional Matt and Imogen, another love triangle (a la green wing) which I thought was totally unconvincing, however also a sub-plot forms between Jason and Nicole from the supporting characters which I found myself a lot more interested in.
In summary I think this is essential viewing for someone who was a fan of Green Wing, it has the music, the craziness and the same style of humour, and this is what carries it for me as the story-line falls short. Finally, Jonte De Wolfs hair WILL make you want to tear out your eyeballs!
