    “The City Who Sued God.”

    But which one?? Who would be hanging around a sheep paddock out of Darfield at 4.35 on a Saturday morning? [if I can rudely transpose Douglas Adams]

    OK, this one can be a piscatarian. Could probably do with the omega-3.

    Also, yeah, I’ve been getting that Torchwood vibe. Because there is clearly some kind of time-space continuum policing organisation that Megan, Hadyn, and Ellerslie Panmure belong to. And it needs a name…

    Logburner? ;-)

Evil drunken gold prospector sifting the Avon is paid by emissaries of the Other Half to kidnap young, dreamy girl through and push her through a liquified sinkhole to the "Green Zone", a parallel universe in which Christchurch is 1 metre below sea level, and inhabited by people and fish, at war with each other, due to a horrendous cataclysm that tore their original mermaidesqe existence apart.
