Thanks annap! It's been a long time since I've seen the episode, but it has to be one of my top five favourites!
Of course and wouldn't ya know -- It would be a WOMAN that would be able to save the Earth!!! There's more grist for the mill on the 'Sexism in Threads' thread (hehehe).
'It's A Cookbook!' would be a great title for a parody song, don't ya think? Let's see,
They came from the skies,
And to everyone's eyes
They seemed to come in peace
'Tho underneath their covers
Were true 'mankind' lovers
Preferring 'us' above others
Can't think of tune to fit -- anybody got a good idea??
