Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

It's a bit of a clunker but I loved it.

I thought it was pretty darn good. I've never listened to the audio or watched those awful recons of it before so had no expectations, but I genuinely don't understand why people were saying Salamander's accent was dodgy, it sounded really quite good to me.

It was much better than I thought it was going to be having previously seen Ep.3 and been unimpressed with it.

A very good story, as Ian says a hell of a lot better than i thought it would be. Episode 1 is just really action packed. I gave it a 10

It gets a 10 from me. I have said all along that episode 3 didn't do it justice. I said the same about The Underwater Menace. I think if more people listened to the soundtracks and looked at the telesnaps other stories would be rated a little higher than they are now.

It's not one of The Trout's best stories but it's still got a lot going for it.

It's just bloody lovely to be able to sit down and watch it - I never thought I'd see the day! I think I smiled all the way through it :D

Well the first 3 episodes were fun. Nice to see Patrick being the villain, not to mention Jamie in uniform...

I have to admit that by watching this and Web that Victoria does come across as being rather useless.

Damn right she wasn't (Susan on the other hand...)
I was of course referring to the song by Mitch Benn.

I actually found this better than Web, to my surprise. I guess my opinions have changed since I last saw it at the age of :whistle2:

I mean there is one massive plot contrivance, but it's nice that for once it isn't possession of a sonic screwdriver.

By the way - "down under" ?

Is this a reference to the fact that it supposedly starts in Australia (but then moves to somewhere in Europe, I think?)

Or is it, you know, a
