John Pertwee's best show of the 80s
31 May 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I am such a big fan of John Pertwee he was just amazing the Doctor who series after he left I thought he would not be in any other show or film that was until I saw this show Worzel Gummidge what I a great show that people that are really forgetting I mean its such a great show. Worzel Gummidge is a talking scarecrow who always seems to get into trouble for something but always finds away out of it this show is funny fresh and nice I mean what ever happen to old comedies like this show even Thoe its not the greatest show ever made its still great fun for kids and the family its seems to be a very underrated show I would say this 80s underrated gem I give this show a 9.5 out of 10 at its best.
