Iris arrives in the village of Midwinter where she runs into old flame and a series of unsolved murders. There are some funny bits in this story such as Panda's interrogation. The story seems to be a play on the hit TV series, "The Midsomer Murders"and fans of that program may appreciate this even more.

Still, this doesn't quite have the pop; of other Iris stories and feels like it went on too long for good The ending which resolves the series long story arc in a way that is confusing without being amusing.

After the events of the Panda Invasion, Iris searches for Panda (in between drowning her sorrows in cheap liquor) and discover that someone has made a toy version of Panda that is a bomb which will cost the recipient to age backwards to babyhood.

What's behind it all? Domestic difficulties between Santa Claus and his wife Mary Christmas, difficulties that were caused by Iris.

I thought that overall This story is an absurd although mostly enjoyable mad adventure. The story does also surprise by working in a few tender moments in the closing act and, of course, worked the titular line into the dialogue.

This story takes on the supernatural detective story as Iris' bus lands at Mocata Grange through a hole in the Universe. This has some very funny moments. I particularly loved the scene where they poked fun at science fiction attempts to explain "magic" as science and we also have characters breaking the fourth wall. Marcus Hutton has a very good performance playing the role of Supernatural detective with the perfect mix of seriousness and comedic timing.

Series 3 kicks off with Panda dealing with Iris has become a big demanding celebrity on the Planet Tull. It quickly becomes clear that all is not right with everyone's favorite transtemporial adventuress.

Overall, this story is an enjoyable premier episode. It pokes fun at body switching stories, reality, fandom, and even Marvel's Silver Surfer. As always, Katy Manning turns in a solid performance with a script that requires her to play Iris as a couple different characters.
