ZoŽ to appear in BBCís Ďcharming and inventiveí Worzel Gummidge revival

19 September 2019 18:44

Last month, I mentioned on Twitter that ZoŽ has been cast in a TV show aimed at a family audience. I can now confirm that show is Worzel Gummidge, BBC Oneís new adaptation of Barbara Euphan Toddís classic childrenís stories. The adventures of Scatterbrook Farmís walking, talking scarecrow are billed by the BBC as Ďthe TV event of the seasoní with Ďa host of both accomplished and brilliant actorsí.

Having filmed Worzel Gummidge earlier this summer, ZoŽ will appear in the second of its two magical, hour-long programmes, ĎThe Green Maní. We can look forward to her portrayal of the eccentric aristocrat Lady Bloomsbury Barton, whose country fete features a scarecrow competition that Worzel (played by Mackenzie Crook, who also wrote and directed the show) sets his sights on winning.

ĎThe whole thing is so charming and inventive,í remarks ZoŽ. ĎItís the sort of thing Iíd watch. Iím sure it will be a huge success. I know it will Ė itís divine.í

The distinguished cast also includes Michael Palin and Steve Pemberton.

Worzel Gummidge airs in the UK later this year; the exact dates havenít yet been announced, though thereís a suggestion it could be a Christmas TV treat.

Brilliant Britannia is back Ė on 7 November

There's more exciting TV news...

Sky recently revealed the broadcast date for Britannia II, in which ZoŽ will also be seen alongside Mackenzie Crook. Queen Antedia, Zoeís fabulous, fierce clan leader, returns in the historical epic on 7 November (the exact time has not yet been confirmed).

All ten episodes of Britanniaís hotly anticipated second series will be released on that date via Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW TV.

Thanks to Janet for her help.
