Pigbin Josh was a tramp who witnessed Axos landing on Earth. He was riding his bike when he fell in a hole in some ice on a lake. He stumbled around and sighted the landing ship. While investigating, he was captured and analysed by the entity. After finding him unsuitable, it drained his energy and kicked him out for having atypical intelligence. His corpse was discovered by Sergeant John Benton and Captain Mike Yates. (TV: The Claws of Axos)
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The discovery of Josh's body originally showed his face collapsing in on itself on contact with Benton's hand; the shot was deemed too disturbing for younger viewers and the shot was obscured by a flash effect in the televised edit. An uncut version is available to watch in the deleted scenes section on the DVD release.
