Based on the best-selling children’s books by popular UK television and radio presenter, Simon Mayo, Itch follows the adventures of Itchingham Lofte, a science obsessed teenager who pursues the unusual hobby of collecting all the elements on the Periodic Table.

When Itch discovers a powerful new radioactive element, he’s forced to go on the run to protect it from a sinister organisation seeking to weaponize it.

In order to save the planet from potential disaster, Itch has to draw on everything he knows – and the contents of his backpack – to keep himself and his family alive.
