Divorced three times, Victor is willing to sacrifice anything and everything to achieve the glory he hungers for – something he can only achieve by fixing the clone and making him into the super soldier he was designed to be.
Stuart McLoughlin plays Clone – aka Albert
Clone, aka Albert, is the first human clone and appears to be approximately 25-years-old. Intended to be a prototype super weapon, the clone emerges from his birthing tube more likely to hug someone then shoot them.
The clone is an innocent to whom everything is new – from chocolate, to laughing, to dancing. He is fascinated by everything about our world.

Ian is Victor's loyal lab assistant – a modern-day Igor. Ian is in awe of his boss and is more than willing to do anything it takes to help him – including being used as a human guinea pig or being beaten by members of the Secret Intelligence Services.
Mark Gatiss plays Colonel Black
The head of MI7, Britain's most Secret of Services, Colonel Black is a blood thirsty nemesis who will stop at nothing to locate and kill Victor and the clone. He is a man with almost limitless power and absolutely no conscience.
Fiona Glascott plays Rose Bourne
Rose is the owner and bartender of The Peanut, a small pub in an even smaller village called Bletherford. Rose is a beautiful but shy young woman of 26 who has several extraordinary abilities: a photographic memory and savant level math skills.
Upon meeting her, Victor realises she could be the key to unlocking the clone's dormant memories and abilities. Now all he needs to do is get a little piece of her brain.
