    I'm about haif n' haif with this episode. There is good continuity with the examining of the creture. New charchters i liked were Legz Akimbo (the leagues revenge on forum therete companies they worked with) and Charlie and Stella. The Denton girls were a clever nod to the Shining. They appear out of nowhere and frame Ben for the death of two of Harvys toads.

    • Mr. Chinnery: Subject appears to be animal. Ursine features...but ostensibly simian. Also elements of a ruminant or ovine anatomy...I can only conclude that we have been confronted by a new species, the like of which the world has never seen.
      Radio Call: Sir, sorry to bother you. Got this zoo feller here, lost his animals. You haven't see a goat, a pig, and a chimp anywhere?

    • Andrew: Please...please, Mr. Tinsel, let me go.
      Tinsel: What? When you're doing such a fine job of keeping those greedy crows off my turnips? I don't think so, Andrew. Maybe next month, eh?

    • Bernice: Oh they've arrived. Did you know that this afternoon some of you lot are going to be watching a play instead of doing proper lessons?
      It's going to be performed by Legz Akimdo Theatre Company and it's a show about homosexuality aimed at 9 to 12 year olds. Some people call this Theatre in Education, I call it Aids in a Van.
