Tony Mammoth is a blast from the past, a man out of time, literally. In 1979 he was a carefree bachelor, teaching PE and generally living la vida loca. Right up until an avalanche on a school ski trip swept him away to what was surely his untimely death. Except Mammoth didn't die...

Mammoth is miraculously found and brought back to life, a perfectly preserved middle-aged man. The world is his oyster, but Mammoth never really liked oysters, he's more of a pint and a packet of crisps sort of bloke. So all that Mammoth wants is his old life back; the same job, the same car, the same friends. Things can't have changed that much since the 70s, surely?
