T-Bag

DEAR GOD. ELISABETH “LIVER BIRDS” ESTENSEN played the witch-with-a-tea-fetish Talula Bag who lived in a strange teapot in an antique shop and wanted to get all powerful and take over world. Reluctant side-kick was a blonde kid (JOHN HASLER) called T-Shirt (“Yes your majes-tea”) who always came good in the final episode. Each series a girl would come into the shop and (somehow?!) be transported into the strange world inside said teapot. One there she would be sent on a mission to collects various objects (numbers from clock face, silvers spoons, crystals etc) from different (sometimes historical) locations in order to stop the dreaded T-Bag. The bloody kids always won in the end of course, and Ms Bag was sent away somewhere to face “punishment” at the end of each series. By the end of the fourth series “Talula” Bag was utterly destroyed (albeit to return in a Christmas special a year later) to be replaced by sister “Tabatha” Bag, played by GEORGINA HALE. A noxious brew.

    Became something approaching a viable proposition right at the end, when the format was transformed into a weak but watchable sit-com. Made a small something of Georgina Hale’s acting talents.

    Ever get the impression Elizabeth Estensen would slap you one if you reminded her of this, in the same way she must get fed up of people asking about Our Lucien and his rabbits? Bizarre to say the least, but she managed to revive her career by being in Emmerdale for 16 years.
