I've seen this in a couple of reviews on ye olde flist so, as I am just too lazy to copy and paste the same comment, what is the Thomas Thomas are/or Tom Tom thing? I don't understand.

TomTom is a brand of satnav, probably the most well known one. The kid was giving him directions in the same way a satnav does, complete with 'you have reached your destination'.

TomTom is a brand of satnav. I didn't pick it up during the episode either.

It is a bad, bad joke is what it is. Though bad enough, I hope, that a certain percentage of the children watching will one day have to have it explained to them that TomToms are not named after a Victorian boy who liked giving directions.
