The Abandoned Mine
"Shadow of Israphel" Part 8: Diggy Diggy Hole: is the eighth episode of Season 3. It was uploaded February 3, 2011. Its video description reads: With Old Peculier back on his feet, the heroes are plunged into a new adventure, following in the footsteps of Peculier's missing father. It is well known for the titular song performed by Simon, which seems to have also influenced his musical talents in the Parry Grip videos. The episode also spawned a number of remixes of the Diggy Diggy Hole song.
Plot & SummaryEdit
Having finally managed to collect all the necessary components for Fumblemore to create a potion which will heal Old Peculier, the heroes rush to deliver it to their friend in time. Despite appearing to be "a bucket of mud with two golden apples and some feathers in it" Old Peculier drinks the potion-perhaps because Simon describes it as tasting of strawberries and single malt whiskey-- and is revitalized. With his mind clear, Old Peculier sets out to follow in the footsteps of his missing father , and heads to the abandoned guard tower outside the city with the Yogscast and Lysander in tow.
As the foursome arrives at the tower, Old Peculier explains that it was his father's old guard post before he went missing and suggests they look around for clues. Simon and Lewis briefly search the top of the tower, where Simon is nearly killed by a creeper, before Peculier suggests digging out the buried basement. Everyone gets a spade and sets to work, while being treated to a rant from Simon about how Tony Robinson shouldn't have done Time Team. Eventually, Lewis discovers a chest hidden beneath a tree that contains a note from Old Peculier's father. Peculier reads the note and learns that his father was preparing an expedition to go underground to destroy a Hellgate. The episode ends with Peculier declaring that they must follow his father's directions to the mineshaft in town.
