Maybe "The Worst Witch" but certainly the best show!
25 March 2001 | by (england) – See all my reviews

The first time I saw "Worst Witch" was around halloween so I thought it would never be on again, you can just imagine my delight when I found out it was a series! I would HIGHLY suggest to everyone and anyone who might be wary about this children's show to watch it (at least once). You won't regret it (especially if you're like me and enjoy everything British and magical)!
