This is the second in the "Adventures of T. Bag" series.
Having been defeated and had her T. plant destroyed by Debbie (Jennie Stallwood) in "Troubles with T. Bag", the titular sorceress (played by Elizabeth Estensen) finds her way into a fairytale book where new T. plants grow in a story about a magical garden. Having restored her powers, she steals all the silver numbers from the town clock in the first story. Stopping the clock means that time can't go on and so there are no more happy endings. It is up to Debbie to help the town crier, Hickory Dickory-Dock (Roy Barraclough), to collect the numbers and restore the clock. T. Bag once again is assisted (or hindered) by the mischievous T. Shirt (John Hasler).
This series sets the tone for the rest of the nine series in that it feels as though it has found its feet and has a real sense of direction. The principle actors seem to be more comfortable in their roles, and the performances seem less self-conscious as a result. The infamous yet beautiful cardboard sets are still there, but are richer and more elaborate, and the whole production seems more solid and less tentative than the first series. Although the first series is still wonderful in its own right and delivers some real comic gems, "Strikes Again" delivers more, but bigger, better and brighter.
In short, if you liked the first series, you are going to LOVE this one!!!! Buy it now!!!
