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

Vile, Utter, Trash.
20 December 2015 | by HonestReviewsSee all my reviews

When I heard that this abysmal piece of trash had received a sequel I couldn't stop crying with laughter. The original Branestawm was so terrible and so badly received by not only critics but the public as well. So how on Earth did this get the all clear for a sequel?!?! Nice to know our license fee cash for the BBC is being well spent - on trashy programs that are vile and repulsive to watch.

I'm not even going to comment on the story. The story was full of plot holes and made no sense once again. CGI - awful, looked as though it was done on Windows Movie Maker. Comedy - there were no jokes, no laughs and no gags. Acting - Harry Hill is a trashy comedian who jumped the shark a long time ago. The fact that his terrible film only gets a 3.5 on IMDb is hilarious. This unfunny "comedian" needs to get down the job centre and find another job cause comedy and acting clearly isn't his thing.

Isn't it hilarious how they couldn't get Ben Miller back? Obviously he realised and knew that this TV film was abysmal. The rest of the actors are awful. Just go and get new jobs the lot of you no one likes you get off television.

Anyone involved in the making of this should hang their heads in shame at wasting money on something so hideously awful. There is some good news though. The license fee for the BBC will most likely be scrapped soon, meaning this channel will soon be abolished and we won't have to put up with trash like this being made anymore.
