Mump and Smoot inhabit a parallel Universe on planet Ummo, worship a god named Ummo and converse in their own gibberish language — Ummonian — which is nevertheless clear to the audience, all the while delighting in the chaos of a nightmarish world. In Something, we find the intrepid duo Mump and Smoot prancing through the etiquette of a fine Cafe, the sorrow and despair of a Wake, and the pandemonium of the Doctor’s office.
