YES! They’re home.

Ladies and gentlemen, the greatest secret agent in the world is back in September. And he’s bringing awesome with him. The BBC has just released a one-minute trailer for the new Danger Mouse series, and frankly it’s brilliant.

Ordinarily, we wouldn’t be excited about a reboot. You’ve only got to look at our collective reaction to Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters. But this is just gold-plated brilliant. From the Force Unleashed trailer parody, to Kevin Eldon’s channeling of Terry Scott as the voice of Penfold, to the animation that’s slicker and smoother than Shaft himself, there’s honestly nothing to hate here. The only reservation I’ve got is that the theme music rearrangement’s too heavy on the synth, but this looks even better than we thought it would.

I think I need a lie down…

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
