Robert explains in perhaps overly enthusiastic detail how the narrative progression in Shenandoah Down Under differs from that in the cult tv series ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’. Perhaps more to the point, there is also a description of the consequences of the Treaty of Paris in 1856, and how the agreement of Paris (which came after) has had repercussions to the present day, especially for a small town in Scotland which remained at war with Russia for one hundred and twenty years. When Michael can get a word in edgeways, he reports on the taking of the Shenandoah’s first prize as a warship. Will they get chains and blocks and tackle to mount their guns? Will they get any furniture? Perhaps most crucially, will their terrible lack of 600 pounds of tinned lobster be remedied?
