Over the last couple of days I listened to the alternate universe episodes for the first time. Fascinating how the varying takes on this same basic plot really spotlight how different the two universes are. While the Red Panda himself is essentially the same character, the worlds he inhabits definitely are not. This episode is one of my top favorites of the series to date, and it definitely enhanced my enjoyment of its alternate universe counterpart.

Interesting point.. I really thought the "alternate universe" stuff was FAR TOO SILLY.. but you're right, Greg does appear to be keeping certain elements of the original is this... THE BETTER... show.

I just can't WAIT to have Von Schlitz looking like some amorphous blob of blackening plasticene goo! He's a wonderful baddie, MOSTLY because we see SO LITTLE of him.. but a LOT of the results of his machinations.

I've a feeling that the network of the black towers are there to funnel off the metaphysical "juice" from The DESTROYER and whatever other other dimensional baddies get caught in the grip of the NAZI techno-wizards.. I know its too late to hope for it, .. but I'd like to see other.. perhaps British and European 2nd stingers, hero's and wizards alike.. I realize that the mystery of the sacrifice of Tom Tomorrow may be a future plot line.. but might there not also be wizards and witches hidden in the hedgerows and Lodges of Britain throwing out lines of power to protect their Island Britannia as well?!

Even those who couldn't make the cut for the First String, Council of Mages, may have done so out of lack of "managability" rather than lack of ability.. sort of like what Fitzroy found out about the Home Team members..

Thumbs up

I really, really enjoyed this, and how the story flowed naturally from the events of the previous episode.

Not to mention the ultimate ironic fate of Clockwork. Indeed, my Doctor Who loving heart realized that he wound up
