There are no bouncing bumbles here! Instead, the Down Placers take on the most dreaded beast of the Himalayas – The Abominable Snowman (dir. Val Guest). The winter holidays are winding down, but we’ll keep the chill going by taking a look at one of Hammer’s wintery-est films starring Peter Cushing, Forrest Tucker . . . and maybe a yeti or two.
(The show starts with a special note from Derek explaining a mistake he makes . . . more than once . . . over and over and over again . . . through the course of the show.)
