Panda (disambiguation)for other, similarly-named pages.
Panda originally belonged to Tom when he was writing about his travels with Iris Wildthyme. He was annoyed that he hardly left Tom's flat. After Iris returned to Earth, Panda and Tom joined her in her travels around the multiverse. (AUDIO: Wildthyme at Large) He got annoyed when Iris kept calling him a stuff toy. He was surprised that Tom picked up a girl. He felt for Jenny Winterleaf for only being known for her illness going through the vortex. He fell in love with Iris. Iris thought he was becoming the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz. (AUDIO: The Devil in Ms. Wildthyme)
After Tom returned to Earth to live his life as a journalist, Panda continued to travel with Iris. He got annoyed at the state of the bus. He wanted to be a DJ for Radio Four. (AUDIO: The Sound of Fear) When Iris was exiled to 1972 he became a journalist and helped Iris in her investigations. After meeting the White Rabbit and Mock Turtle he started to believe that Alice in Wonderland was real. (AUDIO: The Land of Wonder) He encountered Hilary Wildthyme disbelieving him to be Iris. He didn't feel himself after this event and took his hipflask with him everywhere. Roger the Naxian took him to Malaga. His hipflask which was a link to the rehab dimension. (AUDIO: The Two Irises)
Several times, Panda got lost at the end of the universe (PROSE: Iris Wildthyme and the Celestial Omnibus), completely changed in size (PROSE: The Shape of Things) and was killed (PROSE: The Panda Book of Horror).
Panda sacrificed himself to save the multiverse from being invaded by his alternative selves by jumping into a rift in the Time Vortex while holding a bottle of Tonic Water. (AUDIO: The Panda Invasion) Panda did not die as he had expected. He was saved by Iris Wildthyme and Santa. (AUDIO: The Claws of Santa) He became worked as a secretary for the fan club of Iris. He had his mind swapped in an event with Traguam. (AUDIO: The Iris Wildthyme Appreciation Society) He didn't understand why Iris would install a randomiser in her TARDIS that would make the ride more bumpy. (AUDIO: Iris Rides Out) He asked Iris to take him to earth to get a Pork Pie. Instead he was involved in a murder investigation. A future version of Iris captured them. (AUDIO: Midwinter Murders)
The future Iris captured Panda and her younger self and sent them to a Pleasure Prison, where the pair were immersed in separate virtual realities designed to provide their greatest desires. In this realm he had an autobiographer/PA called Amanda. He kept hearing Iris' voice and caused the future Iris' plans to fail. (AUDIO: Whatever Happened to Iris Wildthyme?) He joined Iris to a darts competition. He he met the Bovine race which meant he had only three species in his book of terrifying monsters left to see. (AUDIO: Iris at the Oche) He had a tv jingle stuck in his head. He became under the the spell of Lift. (AUDIO: A Lift in Time)
After dropping Panda off somewhere to complete a mission for her, Iris traveled with Jo Jones, and later with Captain Edwin Turner. (AUDIO: Find and Replace, An Extraterrestrial Werewolf in Belgium) After parting ways with Turner, she went looking for Panda, but couldn't find him. Instead, she encountered a human called Arthur Bayer, who had a voice very similar to Panda's. (AUDIO: Looking for a Friend)
One of Iris' future incarnations starred in a successful television series as well as several films. Panda only appeared in the pilot episode of the series before he was replaced by a kangaroo named Hoppy. (AUDIO: The Iris Wildthyme Appreciation Society)
Panda was usually bad-tempered. He took offence at being called a toy. Like Iris, Panda drank heavily, and always carried a hip flask of whisky with him, as he felt that it kept him safe through dark times. (AUDIO: The Two Irises) Panda resented being described as a bear and threatened to punch those whom he had felt insulted him "right up the hooter." (AUDIO: Wildthyme at Large, et. al)
