TV-series Mentors

Brian Martell, Barbara Mamabolo, Jane Sowerby


Anson and Simon’s landscaping company has its first customer - a wealthy but impossible woman. When she vetoes all their ideas, Simon brings back someone he believes is a design expert, King Tutankhamen. Tut isn’t quite the experienced builder they were hoping for but that doesn’t matter to Glae, who gets a crush on the boy king. Unfortunately for Glae – and Simon and Anson – King Tut has a curse on him that affects everyone around him. Trying to remove the curse, they build an elaborate ceremonial structure that not only works but turns out to be exactly the lawn ornament their client wanted. All would end well…except that Anson discovers the time machine. (source:
