Series 1, Episode 5 - Closing The Portal

Debbie has had enough of the quests and wants her life back, to concentrate on her family, not being The Chosen One.

Full synopsis

Debbie has had enough and wants her life back. It all comes to a head when she returns from her latest trip to find the table laid out for a candlelit dinner, an uneaten takeaway and hubby Peter fast asleep on the sofa.

Elf doesn't want Debbie to quit, but, if she's certain, he knows how to close the portal forever.

It involves one last quest, though, as Debbie sets out to collect magical properties from specific lands: water from the spa of Gesundheit; fire from the free-spirited Ennythingos; and earth from Parvula, home to the impossibly cute and complimentary Parvuli.

Having got everything on her shopping list, will Debbie be able to turn her back on Yonderland? Either way, by the episode's end, Elf proves to be more than just a pretty face. OK, pretty might be pushing it.
