Barmy Aunt Boomerang is a children's comedy television series broadcast on BBC1 in the United Kingdom from 16 September 1999 to 21 December 2000. Sebastian's world is turned upside down by the arrival of his unconventional Australian aunt Boomerang. It is revealed in the first episode that Aunt Boomerang is in fact a ghost who was starring in an Australian soap when she was killed on set. She now acts as something of a "fairy godmother" to Sebastian. The show ran for two series.

Alex Harvey (born October 1959), the son of the Scottish musician of the same name, played the part of police sergeant Keen.[1]
