Based on the children's books, this series follows the adventures of Worzel Gummidge, the talking scarecrow. Worzel is a bit of a rascal, but is still willing to help out his human friends from the nearby village of Scatterbrook. Written by
No, its not, and it does seem quite old fashioned compared to todays television.
What it hasn't lost though is its very genuine innocent and gentle charm and humour. Worzel Gummidge was hugely popular with all ages, and Worzel's (Jon Pertwee) naive innocence was quite touching. Aunt Sally (Una Stubbs) was excellent, and so was Barbara Windsor in the episodes that she appeared in.
I don't know what Pertwee was like to work with in the series, as apparently when he was Dr Who he was allegedly very difficult. Ah well, its nice to see a perfectionist in whatever role he is playing.
When the series moved to New Zealand I personally felt that was not a good step as it became more darker - I believe a couple of episodes had zombies in them. Oh dear.
