Felicity Jones character Ethel Hallow was first played by her in season one of The Worst Witch. Katie Alen then went on to play the role for a second and third season before Felicity Jones returned to the role in Weirdsister College. See more »
The Worst Witch was part of my childhood when it first started airing and I loved the books as well, and I still love it today at 17. Wierdsister College was an interesting TV series, derived from the books by Jill Murphy. I do not think it is as good as the Worst Witch, but it is a decent series. Of course the stories aren't as planned out and as original as the ones in the Worst Witch. And there are several characters who I adored in the Worst Witch like Miss Hardbroom and Maud that sadly are missing. But on its own, Wierdsister College is pretty good. The acting is very spirited, especially from Georgina Sherrington and Felicity Jones as Ethel, the music is good and the special effects and camera work are decent. There are also some memorable and funny moments that make the series watchable, and the writing is above average. Shame it didn't last longer, because this was not bad at all, not as good as Worst Witch, but worth a peek. 8/10 Bethany Cox
