H is for... Hetocumtek

Hetocumtek was a malevolent alien who visited North America many centuries ago. He set himself up as a local ruler, but his cruelty led to a group of shamen imprisoning his spirit in a totem pole, which was then buried in the deserts of Nevada. It was later discovered by archaeologists, and eventually was brought to London to feature in a museum exhibition. This exhibition was visited by Sarah Jane Smith, Luke, Clyde and Rani after a freak fall of fish from the skies was reported in the area. Clyde touched the totem pole and got a splinter in his finger. He woke up the next day to find himself cursed by Hetocumtek. He planned to free himself, and saw Clyde as a threat to this process. Clyde found himself disowned by everyone he knew - including his own mother and by Sarah and his friends. He ended up sleeping rough on the streets. Immune to Hetocumtek's mental manipulation were the computer Mr Smith, and Sarah's adopted daughter Sky. They were able to break the mental conditioning as the totem began to change and come to life. When Clyde touched the totem pole for a second time, it destroyed Hetocumtek.

Appearances: SJA 5.2 The Curse of Clyde Langer (2011).
