The Worst Witch
Based on the popular British children's novels by Jill Murphy, THE WORST WITCH is a Netflix original series about a group of girls attending a magical boarding school. Mildred Hubble's (Bella Ramsey) life changes when Maud Spellbody (Meibh Campbell) accidentally crashes her broom into her flat on her way to the entrance exams at Cackle Academy. Mildred realizes that witches and magic really exist, but it's not until she helps Maud get to the school that she discovers that she has some magical abilities of her own. Under the tutelage of the school's headmistress, Miss Ada Cackle (Clare Higgins), deputy headmistress Hecate Hardbroom (Raquel Cassidy), and teachers like Miss Gullett (Kacey Ainsworth) and Miss Bat (Wendy Craig), Mildred, along with Maud, Enid (Tamara Smart), Drusilla (Talulah Milligan), and Felicity (Dagney Rollins), learns spells and potions as the students develop their unique talents. They must also contend with their arrogant classmate Ethel (Jenny Richardson), the jealous younger sister of the academy's model student, Esmeralda (Miriam Peche), and with Miss Agatha Cackle, the headmistress's twin sister. There's never a dull moment, but together they keep the craft alive at a time when fewer girls are inheriting magical powers from their parents.
Spooky book-inspired series is mild and magical.
