Anne Reid (Last Tango in Halifax<) stars in episode three of the award-winning Brenda and Effie Mysteries by Paul Magrs (Doctor Who). Brenda and Effie are drawn to a new tearoom in the park. It is owned by the dashing Professor Marius Keys, who has stuffed the place with Egyptian antiquities of all kinds.
But why does his odd-tasting tea send both women a bit woozy? And why's he got actual bandaged revenants hiding in his room at the Hotel Miramar?
It's all enough to give Brenda shocking flashbacks to 1930s Oxford, when she was housemaid to a certain Professor Reginald Tyler, and, together with Henry Cleavis, they fought forces of darkness and diabolism as the Smudgelings, an undercover monster-fighting team.
Back then they uncovered a scheme to do with exotic tea leaves, vital life essences, and a dessicated princess from ancient times.
In the present day, the same awful dangers rear their bandaged heads, and it isn't just Professor Marius Keys who has mummy issues....

Tippling with mummies.
Another totally enjoyable romp with our intrepid heroines, with sly overtones of Carry on Screaming and Travels with my Aunt, bafflegab do such a brilliant job on the sound production, subtle and various noises off work perfectly to build atmosphere and Anne Reid is so good, all her voices blending into a perfect brew.
