Before passing away, Lady Pagwell (Dame Diana Rigg) leaves a legacy in memory of her late husband to fund local new inventions and, as the only inventor in town, Professor Branestawm (Harry Hill) is the obvious recipient. However, his evil opponents Councillor Harold Hagglestone (David Mitchell) and Miss Silt (Doreen Ingleton) insist on an inventing competition to divert the cash elsewhere. The likeliest contender is Professor Algebrain (Steve Pemberton), who lodges with Connie (Madeline Holliday) and her mother Aggie (Sophie Thompson), and who decides to steal one of Branestawm's creations, electric clairvoyant glasses, to pass off as his own. It is down to budding inventor Connie to save the day and win the money that will stop Branestawm from being evicted.Written by

My 7 year old son and me were looking forward to the follow up to the 2014 very funny adaption of Professor Branestawm and it did not disappoint.Great family fun and Harry Hill's portrayal of the Professor is brilliant as are the rest of the cast.Charlie Higson's adaption is quite faithful to the books, taking bits from different stories and creating something new and bumping up the character Connie to the front of the story and the inventions are of the quality of the W.Heath Robinson illustrations that feature in the original book.Hopefully they will make more. I felt I needed to give a review of this show as the reviewer know as HonestReviews wrote a very unfair review and was written before it had been shown on Television, what a 24 carat wally.
