Not the greatest, but worth a watch.
20 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

If you enjoyed "The Worst Witch", either the books or recent television series, chances are you'll like Weirdsister College. Although the plots are rather thin and contrived, it follows on reasonably well from Worst Witch and contains some interesting ideas as well as a fair bit of humour.

Acting is generally good, especially by Georgina Sherrington as the main character, Mildred Hubble. She is the youngest of the main cast and does an extremely good job as a witch-in-training having a tough time. Most of the other main teenagers do similarly good jobs, although Mildred's best friend Cas Crowfeather, played by Abeille Gelinas, is a bit of a let-down. Bobby Barry has a bit of difficulty with Nick Hobbes, but only because Hobbes' character is such a cliché.

Special effects to show magic are good, although the purpose of using magic is never really explained - the characters seem to have no use for it other than study and experimental purposes.

Die-hard book fans who found the television series difficult to cope with will probably not like Weirdsister College - it is modern, and turns the characters into something never intended by Jill Murphy (Mildred with short orange hair? Ethel looking as though she's one step away from seducing every male within a five male radius?).

However those able to accept the idea, or those who have never read the books, will be able to put up with weak plotting and occasionally dodgy acting just for the brilliant music, special effects and beautiful scenery of Cambridge University. If it's on television, watch it, but don't expect too much.
