Clone opens with brilliant scientist Dr. Victor Blenkinsop unveiling the result of his life's work: The first human clone. Intended to be a prototype super soldier who will eventually replace Britain's volunteer army, the Doctor quickly realises his super weapon is more likely to hug someone than shoot them.

Clone is a classic 'fish out of water' comedy revolving around the education of an innocent who is seeing and experiencing our world for the first time. It might also be described as a 'buddy comedy' about a modern Dr. Frankenstein and his monster.
