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, The Scunner Campbell (Iain Cuthbertson), 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 (Gudrun Ure). Now, Supergran protects her town from the forces of evil, although The Scunner Campbell is not exactly a major challenge. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Sunday teatime fun
21 June 2005 | by chris_gaskin123See all my reviews

I often used to watch Supergran when it was on in the 1980's. This was usually screened on ITV on Sunday at around 5-6pm, teatime.

It is about a Gran who is given special powers and when people needed help or were in trouble, they called on her to sort them out, mostly involving crime.

Each episode lasted 30 minutes and usually broke off for some adverts in the middle, which was quite annoying.

Supergran was played by Grudun Ure and the cast also included Ian Cuthbertson and Bill Shine. Each episode had a special guest star. The Supergran theme song was sung by Billy Connolly.

Although some people who I know thought this was silly, I enjoyed some of the episodes and would be good to see some again.
