The new worst witch carries on from the orignal series The Worst Witch based on books by Jill Murphy. this time at Cackles Academy its no longer Mildred 'Millie' Hubble causing trouble its her cousin Henrietta 'Hettie' Hubble who causes just as much trouble. Written by
I absolutely adore the Worst Witch, and I still watch it to this day. The New Worst Witch is a nice TV series, if not as good as the Worst Witch. Cackle's Academy isn't quite what I imagined here, and Caroline O'Neill is good as Miss Hardbroom, but she lacks the frostiness of Kate Duchene and Diana Rigg. Plus, like I felt with Wierdsister College, the story lines aren't as clever or as original. However, the music is fantastic, the writing is good with some funny moments and the camera work and special effects are decent. Out of the original Worst Witch series, as far as I can remember only Clare Coulter returns as Miss Cackle and she is great. Georgina Sherrington who played Mildred even appears in one episode. The acting from all the girls are all very spirited especially Alice Connor(who played Dolphin in the superb 2003 TV drama The Illustrated Mum). Annabel Barnston and Dominique Jackson(who starred alongside John Thaw in Buried Treasure). And Belladonna Bindweed is just as effectively stuck-up and irritating as Ethel Hallow. All in all, good TV series. 7/10 Bethany Cox
