Critic Reviews for The Worst Witch Season 1

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Wanting your storied institutions to be great again is a cautionary theme for 2017, and it is heartening to see a rare children's series so expertly push back against class stratification and xenophobia.

This is a delightful adaptation with a cast full of personality and an empowering message.

Jun 21, 2019 | Full Review…

The series is sweet, fun, and a little bit goofy, which is rather what The Worst Witch franchise has always been. It's not groundbreaking children's entertainment, but it is a delightful escape for kids all ages.

Jun 21, 2019 | Full Review…

Bella Ramsey is a kids TV star in the making as the spirited and sweet Mildred, while Meibh Campbell is a brilliant foil as the clumsy Maud.

Jun 21, 2019 | Full Review…

The school lessons are challenging and often result in some humorous and colorful results. However, it's the girls' friendships and mischievous endeavors that are central to the show. The eccentric faculty also create some interesting drama.

Audience Reviews for The Worst Witch: Season 1

  • Oct 12, 2020
    A messy, poorly-structured, incoherent mess that proves that even the most absurd shows need a basic plot. A blatant rip-off of so many shows and movies. It fails on a character and story level. Fails to deliver good special effects and most importantly, fails to entertain. The child actors do their best with a pretty awful script that is laughably horrendous. The themes are overshadowed by childish humor that never lands. A truly terrible season that fails to establish anything and creates conflict just for the sake of creating conflict.

    As a full-fledged adult, this series for kids actually gave me some meaningful lessons.

    100/100, Absolute must see!
