Bogg and Jeffrey arrive in Russia in 1914 and discover that the British are not fighting World War I but the war in Russia because a British princess is married to Russian nobleman. Jeffrey tells Bogg that the princess is not suppose to marry the Russian. So they go back to prevent the marriage and meet Buffalo Bill Cody and Annie Oakley who are touring England and performing before Queen Victoria. They learn that the Russian the princess will marry is not the gentleman Queen Victoria thinks he is. And when he challenges Annie Oakley to a shoot out, he tries to get Cody to convince her to throw it. When there's an altercation Bogg and Jeffrey have to escape by going through time and find themselves in Africa trying to help Albert Schweitzer cure an ailing chief by using medicine to prove that the witch doctor's so called chants and spells are not helpful. But after losing his supply his aide sent to get some more was captured by slavers. Written by

Phineas Bogg: [about the Russian Duke] Well one thing's for sure, the Princess doesn't want to marry him.
Jeffrey Jones: She may not have to. The Aide said the betrothal might not come off unless the Duke wins the match.
Phineas Bogg: That's not much to hang our hats on.
Jeffrey Jones: Right. Buffalo Bill did ask Annie to throw it.
Phineas Bogg: Yeah?
Jeffrey Jones: Yeah. Something about the Duke being humiliated in front of the Queen if Annie wins.
Phineas Bogg: What's so humiliating about losing to Annie? Everybody knows what a good shot she is.

Its What You Call Working On A Budget
20 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

I'll give this episode a high score because of Bogg and Jeffrey casually walking up on the WWI battle like that at the beginning.

But the funny thing was the WWI Russian front, England visited by Buffalo Bill's wild west show or Albert Schwietzer in Africa, the setting always looked the same! Of course it did.

The episode gets high marks for bringing together Robert Donner (Exedor from Mork & Mindy, but also one of the ghosts from Spirit Is Willing and a hilarious preacher thinking the Hulk is the devil on Incredible Hulk), Lurene Tuttle as Queen Victoria (there's ya a low budget queen) and Rogert Englund's beloved from the V series.

Plotwise, its a bit daft.

I actually watched the episode to see John Laughlin, who I had caught in two episodes of Murder She Wrote, as he is credited here as well, but as John McLaughlin.

Okay, I think there is a reason he has a different name; its a different guy! That is NOT the same guy from Murder She Wrote.
