Yonderland series 3 episode 6 review: Swapsies

The brilliant Yonderland delves into the Debbie/Elf relationship this week with a body swap episode...

Rachel Meaden, Den Of Geek, 21st November 2016

With the sweet smell of freedom finally coursing through his flared nostrils, inept ne'er-do-well Negatus agrees to turn mole for the elders to help investigate Cuddly Dick's nefarious scheme. Meanwhile, due to a malfunction with craggy curmudgeon Nick's portal, Debbie and Elf accidentally swap bodies. Thankfully, some simple science may suffice in righting their physical forms; all they need is a simple scientist.

Mark Gibbings-Jones, The Observer, 20th November 2016
