Apart from Georgia Sherrington and Felicity Jones who play lead characters in both Weirdsister college and The Worst Witch: Jessica Fox, Stephanie Lane and Kate Duchêne are the only other actresses to make an appearance in both series. See more »
Starring several cast members from the Worst Witch, Weirdsister College sees Mildred Hubble head off to further education at a magically concealed school in the heart of Cambridge. The show focuses on Mildred as before and her life as she progresses through the school term. The experiences of Mildred tend to be more mature, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Boys, teenage life and teenage pressures play a large part in the show.
A strong performance from the entire cast and the addition of several new characters help the show along and each episode has enough things going on to keep the viewer interested.
Sadly the show only ran for one season though there was plenty of scope for more seasons. A new version of the worst witch has been produced ("The New Worst Witch"), but no news of a new Weirdsister College.
