We’re certainly looking forward to the next instalment of Professor Branestawm  this Christmas, with Diana Rigg, Bob Mortimer and Steve Pemberton joining the cast. Diana Rigg will be playing Lady Pagwell, Steve Pemberton will play Professor Algebrain and Bob Mortimer will play Professor Awfulshirt.

Harry Hill will once again play the eccentric Professor, Vicki Pepperdine will return as housekeeper Mrs Flittersnoop and  Simon Day will return as Colonel Dedshott of the Catapult Cavaliers.

Here’s a clip from the excellent 2014 special.
