Designed By BerZerK


This is the original fansite totally dedicated to the fantastic adventures of T-Bag, everybody's favourite tea-swilling sorceress.

The website has now been running since November 2000, has moved twice, and has scored over 1000,000 hits in its time (counting all the times the counter has reset due to moves, software glitches, etc), and during its time in its former home of Lycos Tripod, became one of the top 50 most visited sites in the UK on its servers. We house some of the original costumes, many private photos taken by the crew, the surviving costume design sketches by Raymond Childe, and a host of publicity photos, magazine articles, exclusive interviews, and details of original props, not to mention details on how we constructed faithful replicas of both props and costumes!

So come on in - the T-Set is alive and kicking and ready for you within these pages!

 

Never heard of T-Bag?
 

Well let me give a brief introduction...

The "T-Bag" series was a product of Thames Television (now part of Fremantle Media) and ran from the early Eighties to the early Nineties. It was written by Lee Pressman and Grant Cathro (writers of Americanised burger sitcom "Spatz", "Mike and Angelo" and various episodes of "The Tomorrow People"). The basic storyline in each series was that a power-crazed witch (T-Bag) had taken up residence inside some object in a junk shop belonging to a boy (Thomas) and his Grandad. She would oust whoever else was living in the object and create a T-Room for herself. T-Bag would then make her presence known by kidnapping Thomas (who was thenceforth known as T-Shirt) and forcing him to be her servant (or T-Caddy) to keep her magical powers strong by making endless cups of tea from the leaves of her evil T-Plant.

Into the picture comes a sweet, innocent young girl who then happens across the object in the shop and meets the character that has been usurped by T-Bag. Invariably, that character knows how to banish T-Bag (always involving a number of mystical artefacts that T Bag has stolen and scattered about the place so as to avoid banishment). The young girl then has to go and collect them all back up again and restore them to their rightful place.

There are some variations to this story, but the outcome is almost always that T-Bag is destroyed in the end. That's the intro, now click on a link in the menu (left) to find out more!


One last word before you go on - I have produced all of the images and the content of this site myself and have spent many long hours doing it, so if anyone out there is thinking of producing another T-Bag Web page, please could you email me and ask if you wish to use any images, sounds, etc. before you use them? If you do, then I can supply a link to your site here, also!

Newsflash

Good news and bad news on the T. Bag DVD front.

The good news: Lee Pressman has been in touch with Revelation. Unfortunately, the closure of HMV has hit the industry hard, but there is still hope. They are still willing to release the box set of T. Bag, in a decorative teacaddy style box. All it would take is for a proposal to be put forward to a website called Kickstarter, and for T. Bag fans to pledge money towards it before it is released. A minimum number of buyers would have to pledge money, up front, in order for it to happen.

This leads to the bad news:

In order for the box set release to go ahead, they would have to raise £36,000. Therefore if 300 fans were to pledge money, they would have to pledge at least £120 each!!!! The boxset would be a limited edition, however, and each investor would get their name on the box and be a part of T. Bag history.

If we want to get this thing released IN FULL, then we are going to have to raise a lot of money.

I'm not sure how this all works in detail, but I will consult Lee and find out where pledges are to be made. Please contact me if you are interested in pledging money (use "T. Bag DVD" as the subject), and we can see how much interest there is out there. I guess if we can get large numbers (i.e. more than 300 people), then the amount that each would have to pay will decrease.

 

T-Bag on DVD
 
Although the first and second series are being released, we want them all! Come on people, let's keep up the pace!

Imagine being able to watch T-Bag with a crystal clear picture that doesn't look as though it has been copied again and again and again and again and.... Imagine being able to watch it over and over without fear of the video chewing up your precious recordings. Imagine not having to worry about where you store your ancient recordings in case they go mouldy and are ruined, instead having resilient disks that can last up to 100 years (apparently). Let's get T-Bag released on DVD. Sign the petition.

 

In the meantime, don't forget to head over to Fantom Films to pick up your copy of the T. Bag Reunion Documentary!
