Hoping to reach the city of a thousand towers and a way home Brian joins the Brevit Players who will soon be performing there, as their dogs-body but is attacked by an escaped throck, who shreds the one copy of their play - so he writes a new one. This is a success, unlike his escape plan, due to a bomb in the playhouse. Fortunately Howell spots another means of helping him whilst Barbara strikes up an unlikely friendship with fairy policeman Chestnut. Written by don @ minifie-1

It looks like some assassins are after Brian. Meanwhile Brian wants to go to the City of a Thousand Towers as a means of finding his way back home to his time. Unfortunately some lady booked all the tickets for her seven dwarves.

Brian gets a job as a ticket seller and a sandwich board man with a company of travelling players due to perform the annual Munty Play only because they are also due to visit the City of a Thousand Towers.

However Brian is forced to write the annual Munty Play when the original script gets lost but Brian has only ever seen Hamlet and lots of films and television. Can he knock it out of the park?

Meanwhile Barbara finds tentative romance with Chestnut who has damaged his wings. While some Orcs plan to blow up the Lord Protector.

Sylvester McCoy adds gravitas as the Lord Protector who must like the annual Munty Play . However it was all a little by the numbers for me, I had a feeling Brian would end up writing the play and inserting pop cultural references.
