Synopsis: The Hood traps Lady Penelope and Parker inside an underwater hyper-loop train during a high stakes robbery.
Review: This episode is pretty much Lady Penelope, Parker and her Dog verses the Hood in a kind of ‘Thunderbirds’ take on classic train heist stories.
We even see the return of Professor Moffat who is traveling with a new scientific breakthrough that has piqued the interest of the Hood to such an extent that he steals it and knocks Moffat out and then uses holographic tech in order to assume her identity.
His plan is rumbled by Lady Penelope’s dog whose heightened senses smell a rat.
This was very much a Lady Penelope centred episode, which had Lady P doing stuff that you’d expect to see coming more from Kayo who is absent from this story.
There are some great touches such as Lady Penelope’s Pink Rolls Royce doing the classic James Bond trope of becoming a submarine. And thanks to some sharp thinking from Alan Tracy they manage to retrieve the scientific equipment that the Hood tried to nab.
This is an episode where had you blinked you’d have missed something.
We also have a cute moment at the end where Brains is reunited with Professor Moffat who he is still somewhat smitten by.
