The Story

The Bermondsey University Geographical Society's greatest explorer is Stanley. Given that the rest of the society normally get lost on the way to the toilet, that's a fairly dubious honour. In a last effort to salvage the society's reputation, Stanley volunteers to set off on an expedition to track down the missing Doctor Pavingstone. Helping him on his quest are Lady Mary and Richard Darcy, otherwise known as "Elephant Dick".
