2. Njarnia

First broadcast: Thursday 4th September 2008

Ed and Lucy buy a cheap self-assembly wardrobe which leads them to the fantastical, but slightly rubbish, land of Njarnia.

Back in the 'normal' parallel universe of The Wrong Door, viewers meet unfortunate wannabe superhero Rocketman and the monster who lives in the office stationery cupboard; Philip the Dinosaur goes bowling; there's an intriguing new weight-loss cure; and a water-cooler moment viewers probably won't want to share.
