When Joe invents a new super battery, it catches the attention of Professor Polonium and her trusted but rather silly sidekick Dr Crumpton.

After stealing the super new battery, Dr Crumpton stages a series of accidents across the village so the Professor can sweep in to save the day. Now everyone in Pontypandy thinks they have their own comic book hero, who they affectionately name Flying-Man.

While Professor Polonium is wreaking havoc on Pontypandy, the untested suit malfunctions and ends up blasting all over the village causing lots of fires. Can the firefighters save Pontypandy and extinguish the flames?

 “It’s a real privilege and honour to be asked to be part of Fireman Sam,” said Van Outen.

“The show is an institution for us in our family and I absolutely love it. My daughter Betsy is going to be so surprised when she finds out I have got a starring role. We always used to watch it together and I am definitely going to be the coolest mum at her school.

"I am thrilled to be playing Professor Polonium. She’s quite larger than life, very excitable, very opinionated and quite bossy, and she is out to make as much money as she possibly can," she said.
