Two new episodes of Worzel Gummidge arrive at the BBC this Christmas. Based on Euphan Todd’s Puffin Books, Worzel Gummidge is the story of a scarecrow. He lives in Ten Acre Field and befriends children Susan and John, becoming inanimate whenever his pride is wounded.
Tim Plester (After Life, Game of Thrones) stars as Fisherman Stan, alongside Mackenzie Crook (The Office) who plays Worzel Gummidge. The show also features India Brown (Silent Witness) as Susan, and Thierry Wickens, in his acting debut, as John.
Other stars include Steve Pemberton (The League of Gentlemen) as Mr Braithwaite, comedian Bill Bailey as Mr Pegerine, and Academy Award Winner Vanessa Redgrave as Peg.
