I was watching series 2, episode 4 of Toast of London, a comedy starring Matt Berry. It is called High Winds Actor.
When Steven's friend Axel Jacklin [who sounds like James Mason], Britain's best actor at performing in front of a wind machine, dies Steven's agent Jane puts him up for the leading role in a period maritime drama and he proves that he can withstand the machine. However he must be a Freemason to secure the part and makes a hurried trip to the East End to buy his way into the initiation ceremony. He is duly accepted but unfortunately one of the Masons officiating is Ray Purchase, who ensures that everybody knows Steven only joined to get the part and loses it for him.
Although the series is in general pretty good, this episode is weak. Every stereotype is used. There are some funny bits.
It lasts less than half an hour, and if you are in the right region it is currently on YouTube. Probably worth watching once.

omni: In my Lodge the Secretary is a hugh bully along with control issues. if anyone even asks a question he files masonic charges against them. He controls members mostly because they are afraid of him.
