Beautifully updated, with stunning cinematography hy
26 December 2019 | by flamingofairSee all my reviews

Just watched the first episode, a gentle, funny and engaging adaptation. Mackenzie Crook has captured the essence of Worzel perfectly, a kindly but scatty scarecrow, looking after the balance of nature. The CGI effects are cleverly done, really bringing alive the illusion of the scarecrow. The only problem - it's really made me wish for summer in the English countryside again!
