Harry Hill makes his acting debut this Christmas in BBC One’s The Incredible Adventures Of Professor Branestawm.

Adapted by Charlie Higson from Norman Hunter’s classic children’s books, the hour-long family film airs at 8.30pm on Wednesday 24 December on BBC One.

Hill stars as Professor Branestawm, an absent-minded inventor who is oblivious to the chaos his harebrained creations cause when they go wrong.

If it weren’t for the efforts of his long suffering housekeeper, Mrs Flittersnoop (Vicki Pepperdine), and his dim but loyal best friend, Colonel Dedshott (Simon Day), the professor would long ago have blown himself to smithereens.

Set in the picturesque English landscape of days gone by, The Incredible Adventures Of Professor Branestawm sees local schoolgirl Connie (Madeline Holliday), come to the professor’s rescue when evil businessman Mr Bullimore (Ben Miller) and local Councillor Harold Haggerstone (David Mitchell) unite to have Branestawm kicked out of the village as a dangerous menace.
