The Incredible Adventures of Professor Branestawm DVD

November 9, 2015

A new, star-studded adaptation of the classic children’s book series will be released on DVD and Digital on 9th November, ahead of the second adventure airing on BBC One on Christmas Eve. Adapted by comedian and author Charlie Higson, and starring Harry Hill, Ben Miller, David Mitchell and Miranda Richardson, The Incredible Adventures of Professor Branestawm will entertain the young and the young at heart this winter!

A close up of a womans faceProfessor Branestawm (Harry Hill, TV Burp, The Harry Hill Movie) is the original mad professor, an absent-minded inventor who is oblivious to the chaos his hare-brained creations cause when they go wrong, which they always do. If it weren’t for the efforts of his long-suffering housekeeper, Mrs Flittersnoop (Vicki Pepperdine, Getting On, Rev.), and his dim but loyal best friend, Colonel Dedshott (Simon Day, The Fast Show, Mount Pleasant), the professor would long ago have blown himself to smithereens.

In this adventure, the professor’s friends and his young apprentice Connie (Madeline Holliday, Holby City), join forces when evil businessman Mr Bullimore (Ben Miller, Johnny English, The Armstrong and Miller Show) and officious local councillor Harold Haggerstone (David Mitchell, Peep Show, 10 O’Clock Live) plan to have Branestawn branded a danger to the community so that they can bulldoze his workshop and make way for a giant munitions factory in the middle of town.

Embark on a mad cap flight of fancy when The Incredible Adventures of Professor Branestawm is released on Digital download and DVD on 9th November from Universal Pictures (UK).


To celebrate the release of The Incredible Adventures of Professor Branestawm on digital download and DVD, Boo Roo and Tigger Too are lucky enough to have one DVD to giveaway.

  • Rachel Craig November 10, 2015 at 6:22 pm

    I think Teacher who taught Annatomy, Physiology and Health. As he encouraged us in regards to learning the subject. He was supportive of our views, accepting of our Personalities etc.

    Though he did also wait at school gates for latecomers, I did not appreciate that role. As it seemed unfair, as anyone who lived within view of the school were able to watch fro m the window of their home till he left. In that way they avoided punishment, yet were later. Five minutes late led to belt or written lines, yet those who could wait till he left guarding school gates, no punishment.

    He should have used his potential to encourage education / learning. Whilst allowing registration teachers to deal with any latecomers, as that was our first class to attend. Whilst luckily they did not welcome us with a punishment even if late. As had attended and ready to move on to classes for various subjects as per our timetable.
