No matter what she tries to do,
trouble has a way of finding Brenda. It's hardly surprising with secrets
like hers. When her old adversary Mr Danby starts filling the airwaves
with his late night phone in show it can only mean one thing - and sure
enough best friend Effie soon finds herself up to her neck in it. But
that is only the beginning; fate has an even bigger surprise in store.
Romance is in the air for Brenda and, do what she will, she cannot deny
that she and her man were made for each other - literally. But as usual,
Brenda and Effie will face up to whatever dangers come their way with
fortitude and grace: even if that means journeying to places beyond
their wildest dreams.
This is the third Brenda and
Effie and it all kicks off mightily as, thanks to the really rather
unpleasant Mrs Claus, Frank's in town and he wants his wife. Brenda's,
strong, objections to Frank's insistence on what he sees as his long
overdue nuptials sends the two of them quite literally to Hell via a
long drop over a large cliff. Effie and Robert are having none of it
and soon, with Sheila Manchu in tow, follow her via the Bitches Maw
into a Hell that bears an uncanny similarity to the Whitby they'd just
left and so, on familiarish ground they soon manage to get back together
with Brenda. Things don't necessarily go exactly too well but thanks
to Brenda's selflessness the friends, along with Frank and Alucard, escape
Hell in a fabulously unorthodox way.

gloriously silly imagination and the chops to back it up with a series
of referential and (ir)reverential stories.
