Wonderful Worzel
11 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

This was a smashing little series, shown early on a Sunday evening and was always ( maybe still ) I thought, under-rated. Pertwee played Worzel - whose sense of fun shines through the show - to perfection . His unrequited love for Aunt Sally, another scarecrow who thought herself above him, was quite central to the plot as he was always trying to impress her, getting himself into all sorts of scrapes in the process and suffering some wounding barbs from her in return. She made it clear a scarecrow was not good enough for her - she was upwardly mobile - and just used him to achieve her own ends. Often visibly hurt and wounded he would pursue her affections regardless. A mini tragic-comedy really. He had different heads for different situations - "I've got my talking 'ead on today Aunt Sally"! Good, healthy, entertainment for kids - bring it back!
