Summary

The evil Imperatrix is no more - killed when she terminated the robotic weapon which shared her life force. With her gone, Negatus now answers to no-one and can seize control of Yonderland for himself. But with the return of a previously imprisoned envoy for the council of Elders, Cuddly Dick (Stephen Fry) he has his own plan to seize control of Yonderland for himself.

Episode 2: Yonderland

Summary

Cuddly Dick overthrows the Elders to seize control of Yonderland, prompting Debbie to head out on a daring rescue mission to save Nick. Meanwhile, Negatus is finding his new role as vice-president of refuse and sanitation less prestigious than expected. Comedy adventure, starring Martha Howe-Douglas and Stephen Fry.

Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The delightful joke machine that is Yonderland powers ahead with an evil takeover, an exile and a rescue bid. Our Alice in Wonderland, Debbie Maddox, senses that her time as the Chosen One is nearing an end. With Imperatrix dead and a house move on the cards, she is effectively redundant, so the Yonderfolk throw a farewell party in her honour.

The gags are suspended for a bittersweet moment when Debbie returns to the real world and realises she is ordinary again. Martha Howe-Douglas sells it beautifully. And there’s some Blackadder-style mileage extracted from one unfortunate character name.
