'10/10 - The Worzel Book will tell you everything you could ever have wanted to know about the history of Worzel Gummidge. Manning’s research is absolutely meticulous.' Starburst Magazine
When a former Time Lord swapped time and space for the mystery 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 hit ITV television series and its eventual resurrection in New Zealand for Worzel Gummidge Down Under.
This is the untold behind-the-scenes story of a much-loved TV classic, featuring dozens of new interviews with cast and crew, including Una Stubbs, Geoffrey Bayldon, Jeremy Austin, Bernard Cribbins,
Barbara Windsor and Lorraine Chase, illustrated with more than 300 photographs in black and white and colour, many previously unseen, and includes a foreword by Sherlock creator Mark Gatiss.
