MARS. The Future.
In Inspector Feelgood Carmody’s Martian kitchen, his two loyal appliances await his return.
Fastidious and nervous, a burglar hiding out after one last job.
Gruff but loyal, a former starship during the war. Toast-making ability: debatable.
As the two friends bicker, argue and make up, hints of their past lives are gradually revealed.
Both hide a secret of their encounters with the mysterious Dr Novum, a once-prominent industrialist who, rumour has it, returned changed from the stars.
What does Novum want?
And is he even human anymore?
The arrival of Bianca, an undercover Earth agent masquerading as an answering machine, brings things to a head.
And as Novum closes in on our heroes, things can only get weird...
