What strikes between ‘The Girl who Was Death” and ‘Once Upon A Time,’ is the one thing they have in common, and that’s childishness! Both are an attempt to extract the reason behind Number 6’s resignation. The one tries to get Number 6 to lower his guard with children, whilst the other takes him back to his childhood. While the former appears to be a last desperate attempt, as though they have run out of ideas, the latter is a more organized calculated attempt, which begs the question why bother with the former at all when there’s Degree Absolute? Both fail of course, but anything is worth a try once, isn’t that right Number 2?
Be seeing you, only in Number 2’s case it’s unlikely in the extreme!
