How do we know that at the end of ‘Free For All’ Number 2 was heading back to England, that England is the homeland the new Number 2 asked her predecessor to give her regards to? We don’t. We don’t even know if The Village is run by British Intelligence department of the Foreign Office, we only assume that it is. And yet Cobb was dressed for the homeland of Britain when he was about to exit The Village, dressed in bowler hat and business suit. Also the last we see of the “late” Number 2 of Chimes, OUAT, and Fall Out he too is dressed in bowler hat and business suit, heading into the Houses of Parliament through the Peers entrance. Yes the former Number 2 eventually arrived back in the homeland overland, and over the English Channel by ferry. But Cobb would also have enjoyed a quick flip to the landing stage, and from there a nice little sea voyage back to England, and an eventual interview with his new masters!
Be seeing you
