a shock to london
Also (loosely) adapted from "The Dust of Death" by Fred Merrick White, this version puts the original story through a comic wash. It's the same disaster and the same characters with the added spice of the absurd.

Can Dr. Label and Dr. Hubert find the source and treatment of the plague before all of London is wiped-out? Is Dr. Label actually a crack-pot? Will Dr. Hubert find love? These questions may not be answered with this adaptation either. (Unproduced).
