  • The basic premise of this programme is a very silly one, and is pretty much explained by its title - Super Gran, played with enormous verve and commitment by Gudrun Ure (who to be honest has never really done anything as good as this again) is an ordinary northern grandmother who has acquired super powers, and in the best super hero tradition uses them to fight against the bad guys
  • If you do happen to run across Super Gran when you have a few minutes to spare, I really would recommend that you give it a chance - it's funnier than you might imagine

      I was really pleased the other day to discover that Super Gran is being shown on TV again, since I had thought that it had been long since forgotten by most people and would gradually fade into the distance with only the occasional DVD release to self-mocking older viewers being permitted to break the silence. Admittedly it’s not being shown on any of the main channels, but I suppose that these days you have to take anything you can

      get in that regard! The look of the show is quite basic, with obvious cheap set design and so on, so you have to be willing to suspend disbelief a little.

      • grandmother who has acquired super powers, and in the best super hero tradition uses them to fight against the bad guys. As this is a children’s show, she always does win in the end, but not before there have been all kinds of amusing and ridiculous happenings.

        Super Gran’s arch enemy is the villainous but rather bumbling Scunner Campbell, played just as memorably by the recently passed away Iain Cuthbertson. Even though he (and whichever hapless henchmen he can find)

        inevitably lose their battles with Super Gran, there are usually some good twists and turns along the way, and the show can hold my interest as an adult in a way that a lot of children’s TV, especially more recent shows, really has trouble in doing. If you do happen to run across Super Gran when you have a few minutes to spare, I really would recommend that you give it a chance - it’s funnier than you might imagine!
