A magical gem
5 February 2003 | by glc19garethSee all my reviews

I fondly remember this from the first time round, and recently saw it again on a BBC cable channel, it had lost very little of its charm. The acting was generally superb (especially Spriggs and Sims), but the child actors were good in their roles too.

The premise is a good one, and the episodes fast paced with 'punchy' cliff hanger endings. Brings back happy memories of 1980s childhood, just before the dawn of a new safety age where children still had some opportunity to go off out on their own.

One last thing, the scenes in the english primary school were really realistic I thought, and the teachers treatment of the witch (who they saw as a slightly demented old lady) excellent.
