    London, England, 1952.

    Meet the mercurial genius Professor Quanderhorn (James Fleet) - a maverick scientist with absolutely no moral compass. Join him and his rag-tag crew on their frontal-lobe-knotting escapades as they:

    · Battle insane hybrid creatures: the Gorrirrel and the Squirrilla, to the death!
    · Become Gods to a Stone Age tribe
    · Are engulfed in a Martian invasion of Earth
    · Escape shipwreck on the Moon in a spacecraft powered by anger
    · Evade multiple fiendish traps in the Alien Ziggurat of Death
    · Tussle with a Top Secret Parrot
    · Become terminally confused when they encounter their past selves in a Time accident...

    Will our crew of Brave Boffins survive?

    And what a crew they are: Q's part insect son, Troy, reputedly a "major breakthrough in Artificial Stupidity" (Freddie Fox); eager young Test Pilot and recovering amnesiac, Brian Nylon (Ryan Sampson); brilliant scientist Dr. Gemini Janussen with her half-clockwork brain (Cassie Layton); captured Martian hostage Guuuurk (Kevin Eldon); sinister janitor Jenkins (John Sessions), and synthetic-voice-commentator-later-inserted-into-diving-suit, Dolores (Rachel Atkins).
