    Clovis is a brilliant creation - the laughs (and there are many) all spring from his misguided belief in his status as a serious anthropologist and paranormal investigator. The ship's log story is a classic! But Mike Hayley also makes space for moments of pathos and real poignancy - the 'new' Wilfred Owen poem leaves a lump in the throat. Layered, intelligent and multi-faceted - my kind of comedy. Five stars.
