Synopsis

When Dirk Lloyd awakens in the middle of a small town he's never seen before, he is confounded. What is this strange place and why is he powerless against these humans who insist on finding his parents? Could it be that Dirk Lloyd is really the earthly incarnation of a Dark Lord who, after a cataclysmic final battle with his arch nemesis, was hurled into the Pit of Uttermost Despair? Or is he just a confused boy from the cozy town of Whiteshields?

The Telegraph

It's natural for teenagers to baulk at adult authority so it's a clever idea to put a once all-powerful evil lord from outer space in a situation where he suddenly has to cope with the demand for subservience.
