A wonderful tale that finds Jago and Litefoot down on their luck as they have no place in a London where their counterparts are alive. Yet, Jago and Litefoot find that these alternate Earth counterparts may need them. Alternate Jago is down on his luck and married, but he has a desperate plan and he thinks Litefoot can help when he meets him but what plan does he have that involves a gun and could be helped by a pathologist?

Then there's Alternate Litefoot who finds himself mysteriously bed-ridden and kept coming by his Chinese curios and about to be victimized by his at-home nurse and her rat catcher boyfriend.

Overall, there's a lot of humor, great chemistry, and a nice bit of dynamic between the Jagos and Litefoots. The differences between them are slight and more experiential than anything else. It's quite a bit smarter than past attempts at alternate Jago & Litefoots. The story also continues to be another great hearkening back to Talons of Weng-Chiang in both main plot threads.

An ambitious story, to say the least, which echoes the complexity of "The Wrong Doctors" using two Jagos and two Litefoots, while tying into the history of "Talons of Weng Chiang" and recent stories like "Butcher of Brisbane" as well as recent J&L characters such as Aubrey and Bannerman.

This is busy and complex, yet it tell the story and has fun along the way.

There is great work from all of the talent involved, especially the writer and director who have taken an ambitious plot and realised it well.
