Further details

Roy has been watching TV for so long that his eyes are TV-shaped. Maura sends him out to the garden to play, but desperate to know how the episode ends, Roy sneaks back inside to watch the TV. When Becky surprises him, he accidentally swallows the remote.

Grabbing his belly, Roy discovers that every time he presses a button it activates him instead of the TV. 'Fast Forward' and he starts speeding around, 'Pause' and he stops. Roy is desperate to keep his secret from everyone, but does that mean he'll be under the remote's control forever?
