Storyline

In a small British town, there is an old lady who is making the best of her weak condition. However, the small time criminal mastermind, Scunner Campbell, has stolen a new invention that he hopes will grant superpowers to himself; as soon as he makes it work that is. However, a botched firing makes the beam go astray and it hits the Grannie instead. Suddenly, the lady gains super strength and speed to become the local superhero, Supergran. Now, Supergran protects her town from the forces of evil, although Scunner Campbell is not exactly a major challenge. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Crazy but fun
28 January 2002 | by (Belfast, Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

As a kid in the eighties I used to love reading the SUPERGRAN books. Accompanied by the TV series with the memorable theme tune (Stand back Superman, spiderman etc...) sung by Billy Connolly, this Scottish family fun was extremely entertaining. Simple format, Scunner Campbell was the baddy and his podgy stooge 'tub' who always had a cream bun in his face. They were always stopped by SUPERGRAN and her hapless chums. Questionable acting, pointless script and special effects to make any Doctor Who look like Star Wars, but still entertaining enough to keep this seven year old kid glued to his screen. With her hunching over and her quivering she would extend her index and her little finger on each hand with her thumb holding the others in place, this indicated her 'Super hearing' was working. Well I suppose it beats the Bionic Woman's ear. Classic stuff, worth checking the bargain basket in the video store to find an episode.
