Will the Doctor destroy the giant rats or will PETA protest too much? Is Professor Lightfoot humming the tune to "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face" as Leela gives a rousing rendition of "Wouldn't it Loverly?" ? What about the ticket sales for Henry Gordon Jago given that his top draw ends up as a rodent repast? And most importantly, will the estate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle sue Robert Holmes? Regardless of these confusing conundrums and peculiar paradoxes, the Victorian epic "Talons of Weng-Chiang" wraps up with more fireworks than a Chinese news year celebration! - Dr. Siobahn Morgan
