Storyline

Before passing away Lady Pagwell leaves a legacy in memory of her late husband to fund local new inventions and, as the only inventor in town, Branestawm is the obvious recipient. However his evil opponents Councillor Hagglestone and Miss Silt insist on an inventing competition to divert the cash elsewhere. Likeliest contender is Professor Algebrain, who lodges with Connie and her mother Aggie 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 don @ minifie-1

Enjoyable family friendly silliness.
27 December 2015 | by thejimsmithukSee all my reviews

An engaging, cheerful bit of colourful, family friendly whimsy, with strong production values & a fine cast that even includes Dame Diana Rigg, in a witty cameo that justifies the production by itself.

Felt the need to post this, a broadly positive but not particularly acclamatory review, because of weird, spittle-flecked ranting that the only other review consisted of. Frankly astounding that anyone could get so worked up about a bit of Xmas silliness largely aimed at children.

Anyway, it was very enjoyable, rather sweet Xmas Eve fare and I hope the tradition continues.
