6. I Heregy Thind You Guilky

Episode 6 of 6

Under the heel of the Martian invaders, the crew race to rescue Quanderhorn from execution. And fail. But will painting Brian’s bottom with lipstick save the day?

Quanderhorn (James Fleet) is tried for treason by Churchill (John Sessions), and sentenced to death.

Guuuurk (Kevin Eldon) rejoins the team, and they race to the rescue in a hijacked Martian tripod.

But too late. They arrive just in time to witness the Professor’s execution.

Rudderless without Quanderhorn, the team – Brian (Ryan Sampson), Gemma (Cassie Layton), Jenkins (John Sessions) and Troy (Freddie Fox) along with Guuuurk and Diving Suit Dolores (Rachel Atkins) – flee aimlessly.

But in the very pit of their despair, hope arrives in an unexpected package – a dormobile full of ravenous trained monkeys.

Meanwhile, the Imperial Martian Opera is mopping up the blood on the stage from Act One of Cozi Tanned Floozie, blissfully unaware that an unexpectedly spectacular Act Two is about to follow – and it’s nothing to do with the giant exploding banana.
