Fantastic series that should've had a longer run
26 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

This was an understated gem of a series that either did not get sufficient publicity or lost out on its key audiences.

This stop motion animated series centers on the lives of the inhabitants in a little Lancashire village called Sabden, known for its famous by-products from the Treacle Mines.

I simply loved the characters with their quaint idiosyncrasies that should have the adults chuckling along with the kids.

Rosie Mitton and Bill Wizzle are the delightful kids who save the day or rather try to if it weren't for the Boggarts.

Proffesor Baines-Pilling is the resident "Nutty Professor" of the village, with his botched up inventions and well meaning attitude.

Leyland Lil (and her husband Charlie who's hardly in the picture) are the owners of "The Bubble and Boggart Cafe" that caters mostly treacle flavoured ginger beer and Lil's infamous parkin which better serves as a doorstop than on a plate...

Brendan hails from Ireland and therefore uses his natural charms to sway the often irate Lil (and others) when they feel he's not pulling his weight at the ginger beer bottling factory owned by the village's head entrepreneur, Silas Mitton.

The unflappable Tapper Knowle was my favourite though. An engineer in the Treacle Mines with a no-nonsense attitude, hard core common sense and dry wit. Although seemingly at odds with everyone thanks to his blunt nature, he does care about the residents though its likely he'll never say it out loud!

The series began with an inevitable crisis affecting the residents, viz, the mines drying up. Through an extraordinary stroke of luck (and with the help of a few dodgy creatures called Boggarts), the mines were saved, which lead to an entirely new set of problems and fiascoes to handle.

I do hope the series can be continued with the same cast showcasing a motley crew of small town residents that was entertaining to watch.
