So there’s a lot of Lost World in our Fawcett this episode, but it’s not my fault that the two won’t stay a Stegosaurus length apart! In this episode, our boy Percy gets down on the British Empire following the First World War, is quite polite about a certain odious British biologist, hints at sightings of living dinosaurs yet again, and lays out his alternative history of South America before going missing for good. It’s good for what ails ya.
