A ratings success adored by viewers and critics alike, Worzel is a star-studded modern adaptation of Barbara Euphan Todd’s glorious stories. BAFTA® winner Mackenzie Crook – who also writes and directs – stars as the charming and irreverent scarecrow who mysteriously comes to life. When two visiting, sibling orphans, who are getting a respite in the countryside from their foster home, accidentally trick Worzel into coming alive for them, he brings them into his magical, funny, weird world where nature is the utmost commodity to protect and live in harmony with. Infused with a fun, mischievous spirit and delivered with a timely environmental message, Worzel is the perfect family treat for viewers of all ages.
