She tries to defy her arty-student past by becoming more scientific and takes controversial anatomist and Bodyworks impresario, Professor Gunther von Hagens, to task for being a 'demon with ready access to plasticine.' Playing Professor Von Hagens in this episode is German stand-up comedian Henning Wehn.
