33-year-old Debbie Maddox (Martha Howe-Douglas) is becoming increasingly bored with life as a suburban stay-at-home mum. Then one day an elf (voice of Mathew Baynton) appears from a portal in her cupboard insisting that she's the 'Chosen One' destined to save Yonderland, a magical land threatened by the evil Negatus (Simon Farnaby). Reluctantly, Debbie agrees to meet with the Elders of the realm... only to discover that they've lost the scroll that explains what the Chosen One is actually supposed to do. Yonderland, it turns out, is a very silly place indeed, and it will take all Debbie's resources to complete each week's quest in time to pick up the children from school.

Even better than Horrible Histories

I'm a fan of the live-action HH series and recently invested in an all-region DVD player so I could treat myself to all the shows by the HH team that aren't currently available in the U.S. (i.e., everything except the first three series of HH.) It occurred to me while watching "Yonderland" the first time through that it succeeds in being what "Doctor Who" fans nostalgically recall and yearn for it to be again, a really fun, ingenious and smart fantasy show that above all is good all the way through, not just the occasional "Heaven Sent" interspersed with "Kill the Moon"s. Of course I'd think that since "Yonderland" is a mashup of just about every fantasy show you can think of, including DW, with Debbie as a combined companion-Doctor and her kitchen cupboard her Tardis.

What "Yonderland" has now that Steven Moffat's DW doesn't (and is rare outside of comedy sketch shows) is the consistency that comes with being made by a coordinated creative team that writes and performs its own material. It's also relieved of the exhausting obligation of trying to thrill us with amazing scenarios of heart-stopping action and adventure, since that's what the series is sending up in the first place.
