When a former Time Lord swapped time and space for the mysteries of the countryside, one of children’s television’s most unusual personalities was born. Jon Pertwee’s portrayal of the anarchic scarecrow Worzel Gummidge won him a new generation of viewers and would become his most enduring character.
The Worzel Book traces the journey of Scatterbrook’s scarecrow, from the days of early radio and the novels of Barbara Euphan Todd, through to the fondly-remembered ITV television series and its revival in New Zealand, and now the exciting new BBC adaptation starring Mackenzie Crook.
This is the untold story of a much-loved TV classic, featuring dozens of interviews with cast and crew, including Una Stubbs, Geoffrey Bayldon, Jeremy Austin, Bernard Cribbins, Barbara Windsor, Lorraine Chase and Sean Pertwee, illustrated throughout with over 400 photographs in black and white and colour, and includes a foreword
by Sherlock creator Mark Gatiss.
