A box-office failure from 1986 starring Mel Smith, Griff Rhys Jones and Jimmy Nail, Morons From Outer Space tells the story of four hapless humanoid aliens from the planet Blob who accidentally crash-land their spaceship (a kind of intergalactic caravan) on Earth – specifically on the M1, just outside Hatfield.
Three of the aliens, Desmond (Jimmy Nail), Julian (Paul Bown) and Sandra (Joanne Pearce), are proven to be of very low intelligence but are transformed into successful media personalities and pop stars by novice news reporter, Graham Sweetly (Griff Rhys Jones).
The fourth, mild-mannered Bernard (Mel Smith) is separated from the others and spends the film trying to find them.
