Super Gran: The Complete Series 2
Granny Smith is a sweet old lady living a sedate life in the Scottish coastal town of Chisleton. Then, one day, she is accidentally struck by a stray beam from Inventor Black’s magic ray machine and transformed into ‘Supergran’ – possessor of amazing powers, superhuman strength, and even a magic ‘flycycle’! These she puts to great use in the fi ght against Chisleton’s local villain, The Scunner Campbell, and his nasty cohorts; though with Supergran’s miraculous abilities, defeating the baddies is not usually too much of a challenge!
Gudrun Ure stars as the fearless octogenarian superheroine in this fondly remembered children’s series. Alongside regular cast members Iain Cuthbertson and Bill Shine, Supergran also features an array of guest stars, including, for this second series, Barbara Windsor, Patrick Troughton, Leslie Phillips, Charles Hawtrey, Bernard Cribbins and darts legend Eric Bristow; a wildly catchy theme song, sung by Billy Connolly, also ensured the show remained firmly in viewers’ memories long after its initial transmission. Included here is every episode of Series Two, alongside the 1986 Christmas Special.
