Well back from the TV past Worzel Gummidge rose to the dizzy heights of stardom once more. Whilst not as good as the first four British Series (it lacked the West Country Charm) and being set in New Zealand (or Zew Nealand as Worzel explains)this still proved to be a great success.
Whilst Aunt Sally was there in New Zealand we needed Old Sgt. Beetroot and the Saucy Nancy to help Worzel get up to mischief. Having grown up with Geophrey Bayldons "Crowman" it was hard seeing another Crowman but this is soon explained away and you can then settle into the new set up.
All in all this is an excellant series which if shown again will enthrall the kids of this century as I still show them to my nephews and nieces (and I am sure I will to my new twins when they arrive) and will for years to come.
A big Thank You must go to the late Jon Pertwee who was and allways will be Worzel Hedgerow Gummidge.
