Harry Hill brings Professor Branestawm to life, the original mad professor; an absent-minded inventor who is oblivious to the chaos his ridiculous creations cause when they go wrong (which they always do).
If it weren't for the efforts of his long-suffering and highly-strung housekeeper, Mrs Flittersnoop, and his dim but loyal best friend, Colonel Dedshott of the Catapult Cavaliers, the professor would long ago have blown himself to smithereens.
Set in the quintessential English village of Great Pagwell, Mrs Flittersnoop's science-mad niece, Connie, becomes the Professor's all-too-willing sidekick.
