Not that the first one was any good, but this one is an absolute embarrassment
12 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The New Worst Witch is absolutely terrible. Firstly, gone is the realistic castle they filmed on location in Canada. Instead, we have a horrible set, probably filmed somewhere up north. The new Mrs Hardbroom is absolutely silly. The first one was acted so well and serious, but this recast is terrible. The woman who plays her acts her as if she's a comedian, its awful. Then there is the new "Worst Witch" and although she's starred in quite a few things and has had her experience, she is no patch on the last "Worst Witch". The friends that are by her side are a joke. It's obvious that this show is trying to make every sort of stereotype, even a girl in a ginger wig - its laughable. This "New Worst Witch" is 3/10 - terribly dire.
