Series 3, Episode 1 - A Rising Tide
With the evil Imperatrix gone, and the prophecy fulfilled, this should be a time of peace and prosperity in Yonderland, but will an even darker cloud spread across the land?
Negatus is enjoying life after Imperatrix. He now has no one to answer to, and thinks that he can finally take control of Yonderland for himself. But his fellow overlords may have other ideas.
Former Elder Cuddly Dick returns to Yonderland having been imprisoned for years under Imperatrix's regime. He is a charming, avuncular eccentric who loves nothing more than to spread love and kindness and he is welcomed back by the Elders with open arms
(and plenty of hugs and kisses).
Meanwhile in the real world, Debbie's husband Peter has been offered a promotion which means the family must relocate to Glasgow. With Cuddly Dick back in Yonderland, Debbie feels she can leave the realm in his safe hands. But is she really ready to close the magical portal in her kitchen cupboard?
