User Reviews

Brilliant show
7 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

"Onward ever striving onward, proudly on our brooms we fly...." People who think they are wiccans should realize that "The Worst Witch" is a comedy and yes it is actually quite witty and it's harmless fun. Miss Hardbroom gives you quick dry humour and she is every pupils nightmare. This is a brilliant wee show, good laughs and good story lines, OK abit far fetched but its all make believe about witches. It's not meant to be hardcore modern witches. Cackles Academy has no power and they are very traditional to witch craft.

It is a good show for kids to watch and to have fun with, a lovely wee slot for 30 minutes of the day. Well worth the watch! A+
