When calling the number, the following message plays.

If you look at the first letter of each topping and put in a space wherever the word "or" is said, you get the following message: SPEAK TO THE UNDEAD DOCTOR. This indicated that Dr. William Griffin had faked his death and was going to attempt to speak to Kate. The message also says "Wait for the knock on your door," indicating that the doctor would knock on Kate's door and contact her.

Lee's Treasure Hunt
Gavin and Tariq had bullied Lee since he began working at their office. After the video Subservient Lee, where Gavin commanded him to complete various embarrassing acts, Lee was fed up and made a video where he exposed the secret software Gavin and Tariq had developed. He then wiped every trace of it from everywhere in the office except from his own drive, holding it ransom. He announced that Gavin and Tariq could only get their software back if they played along in Lee's Treasure Hunt. Lee said that he'd hide clues in videos and on The Sun online  for Gavin and Tariq to find. Each clue led to new a location and time where they were supposed to arrive. If they were there, Lee would provide the next clue to lead them to the next location.
On November 16th 2007, the following message was posted on the KateModern Production Bebo page :
Shortly after, Lee posted Let the Games Begin!, in which he revealed his first clue. Multi-colored alphanumerics and punctuation symbols appeared on the screen. They appeared randomly and then were backwards and upside down
When this code was entered into Live Search Maps, you got this: http://maps.live.com/?v=2&cid=116264F0DD5D8C5F!103&encType=1. This map defined a perimeter within London.
On The Sun online this image was posted from the Big Ben:
The picture revealed the location to be near the Tower of Big Ben.
November 19th 2007
The video Parliament Square - 6pm, 19th November 2007 showed Gavin and Charlie arrived at Parliament Square, where they bumped into Tariq and Julia. In front of the Winston Churchill statue, they found a lawn gnome. On the bottom of the gnome was a handwritten note with the next clue from Lee.
The clue read:
You’ll need your platforms tomorrow,
When I hear Abba it makes me want to go.
Hands that don’t wave, a face that won’t laugh,
the time and the place is thirteen and a half.
The solution of this clue is:
- Location: Waterloo Station  (Waterloo is a song from ABBA and the platforms in the clue are referring to a train station)
- Time: 1:30pm (the time is thirteen and a half, what means 13:30 or 1:30pm)
- Where exactly: Under the four-faced clock (the line: Hands that don't wave, a face that won't laugh refers to the hands and face of a clock. There hangs a large and famous four-faced clock in the middle of the main concourse. Meeting "under the clock at Waterloo" is a traditional rendezvous.)
Discussion about the clue at the forum: http://www.lg15.com/katemodern/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=400&start=30
Lee also updated his map, where he pointed out where Waterloo Station is:
November 20th 2007
The green arrow was placed on Waterloo Bridge and the red one on the Royal National Theatre.
Sophie posted a video that showed her, picking up the gnome and looking at the clue on the bottom. At the station, Terrence was also looking for the clue, but when Lee saw him, he looked scared and ran away.
'A station today is tommorow a bridge' (The first "Waterloo" referred to the train station, and the clue for the following day was for the Waterloo bridge.)
'Act fast to get to England's stage' (Another location was the Royal National Theatre, which is a stage. The theater fulfills the part of the clue about to "[acting] fast". ) The Royal National Theatre neighbors the Waterloo Bridge:
The location for the next day was determined to be Waterloo Bridge, in front of the Royal National Theatre.
Lee updated the map  to reflect this information. A picture was added to show the view from the bridge to the theatre.
November 21st 2007
Tariq posted his video a few hours later. In the video, he and Julia waited for Lee on the Waterloo Bridge. Charlie and Gavin showed up a few minutes later. Gavin held a golf club and threatened to hit Lee with, but Lee never arrived. Instead, a woman delivered the gnome with the next clue on the bottom of it. Gavin wanted to smash the gnome with his golfclub, but Charlie stopped him so that she and Tariq could read the clue. After that, Gavin finally got the chance to smash the gnome to pieces.
The next clue led to St. Paul's Cathedral.
"Chris made Paul a lovely home. He built it with a great big dome. But there’s one little catch, wherever you go, there’s a watch."
- Chris made Paul a lovely home. He built it with a great big dome.
Sir Christopher Wren was a 17th century English designer, astronomer, geometer, and a great English architect. Wren designed 53 London churches, including St Paul's Cathedral. Lee shortened Wren's first name to Chris and spoke about the cathedral, which has a spectacular dome.
- But there's one little catch, wherever you go, there's a watch.
This line was never officially soved; however, Lee was warning the men that he was watching every move they made.
Lee updated his map, with this picture:
The exact location of this statue was never found, but fans assumed that it referred to a statue that stands at the St. Paul's Cathedral.
Later that night, Lee posted You're Almost There! in which he confirmed the solution as St. Paul's Cathedral, at 6pm. After he posted this video, the description on his map changed to: "See you on the steps at 6pm!"
November 22nd 2007
When Sophie arrived, she picked up the flowers and looked at them. But then a Watcher snuck up behind her, picked up the gnome and walked away. Sophie, alarmed by the fans, went after him and tried to get the gnome back. The Watcher ignored her and pushed her to the ground. Sophie blamed herself for not paying attention to the gnome and only to the flowers. Then she left, without the clue.
Lee didn't post a video or update his map that night.
November 23rd 2007
Lee posted a video, in which he said that Gavin and Tariq didn't work hard enough at the game. He agreed to give them one more chance to get to the software before the Order did. One clue remained and they needed to find it as soon as possible.
Description of the video:
Charlie was recording a video blog when the doorbell rang. When she opened the door, she saw nobody but found a gnome on the ground. Julia came to Gavin and Charlie's flat and read the clue on the bottom of the gnome:
There are only 7 ways to get here, but only shadows tell the time. Where am I?
Seven Dials is a small road junction in the West End of London, near Covent Garden. Lee alluded to this with the sentence "There are only seven ways to get here."
Julia grabbed the gnome while Charlie ran after Lee, who had just placed the gnome and was still in the immediate area. Julia and Charlie followed Lee into an apartment building and caught up with him, but Terrence, who had followed Charlie, was there also. He hit Lee on the head with the gnome and started to beat him, while he asked him where the software was. Lee said that the software is in the gnome that Julia had picked up at the pillar. Charlie snatched the gnome and ran outside, where the Watcher is waiting for her. He threw her at the ground and picked up the gnome. Terrence, who ran after Charlie, was also thrown to the ground. The Watcher walked to his car and drove away, with the software gnome inside.
The treasure hunt ended with the Watcher driving away with Gavin and Tariq's software.
The letters in the puzzle image are "KXLgBfQkRX." Advancing each letter by 3 places alphabetically, K becomes N, X becomes A, L becomes O, etc. so the letters become "NAOjEiTnUA" which anagrams to "Auntie Joan."
