Publisher's summary[]

San Francisco, New Year's Eve, 1999

She's back, and it's about...gin!

When an unconscious Iris Wildthyme is rushed into a San Francisco hospital on New Year's Eve 1999, hunky doctor George Strangeways' life is turned upside down.

As the world prepares to party its way into the next millennium, a space time rift opens above the Golden Gate Bridge — where an old fashioned London bus has appeared... As the rift spills untold horrors from other dimensions into our world, Iris has just one question: where the 'eck is Panda?!


to be added



  • By spilling gin into the bus's controls and out into the space time vortex, alternate realities are opened.
  • Iris Wildthyme has two livers.
  • Frustrated, Panda wishes that he asked for an iPod instead of a trip to San Francisco.
  • Iris claimed that the last time that she was in San Francisco, she brought two humpback whales back to the future in order to save Earth.
  • Iris once shared breakfast with Abraham Lincoln on the White House lawn in the 1860s after saving the United States from "Martian invaders" for the third time. She told George Strangeways that they had "such a laugh." She also met Napoléon Bonaparte on the Russian front in 1812 and claimed that, in spite of what the history books said, he was "anything but small."
  • The bus ends up parked on the top of the Golden Gate Bridge.
  • Iris claims that the last time that she was called "madam" was in 1872.
  • Iris knows how to fly a helicopter.
  • Lionel Pandeau is a wine critic.
  • Steven is Iris' grandson.
  • When Lionel Pandeau told Panda to think of the possibilities of a multiverse of Pandas, Panda sardonically replied that there could be a Traffic Cop Panda, Native American Panda, and a Construction Worker Panda. He finished by rhetorically asking if Pandeau was forming a disco troupe.
