11. “The Clotharian Contamination Protocol”

A seemingly routine space-probe recovery leads to the quarantining of Middleman HQ when the building is overrun by menacing nanobots. With the minuscule nasties controlling Ida, MM and Wendy must circumnavigate the building’s oddly spacious ventilation system to send a shrunken Wendy into Ida’s brain before the arrival of the seemingly imminent explosion which, once again, threatens the existence of life as we know it! It’s like Fantastic Voyage, in a robot, or Die Hard… in a building.

10 The Vampiric Puppet Lamentation

When artefacts from Vlad the Impaler go up for auction, Wendy and The Middleman prepare to acquire them all in effort to stop a possible vampire resurgence. But things go horribly awry when the last artefact, Vlad’s beloved ventriloquist puppet Vladdy, takes over the soul of the auctioneer and gets away. Now The Middleman and Wendy must stop Vladdy from reuniting with his puppet bride and bringing on an eternal night of blood. Things only go from bad to worse when the demonic puppet learns about The Middleman’s feelings for Lacey and uses her to force our hero to make a dangerous decision. Meanwhile, when Noser mysteriously disappears, Lacey joins forces with Pip to track down their missing friend, much to The Middleman’s chagrin.

9 The Obsolescent Cryogenic Meltdown

The strong whiff of déjà vu surrounding a robbery with a melting ray leads to the release of the hitherto cryogenically frozen Middleman from the 1960s (Kevin Sorbo). With two Middlemen working together, the prospects look bleak for super-villain The Candle, but the 1960s Middleman becomes increasingly obsessed with catching The Candle, even when evidence points to the demise of said super-villain. Undeterred, 1960s Middleman enlists Wendy to transport him – in the asbestos lined ‘cancer sub’ – to a secret island, where the 1960s Middleman believes The Candle is holing up for a final assault. Unexpected dangers, however, lie in wait for all present.
