    Jesus, that witch. Had a real look of malevolence about her, wasn’t green or anything, just that piercing stare. The way she scoops up Mumfie in the opening titles must have inspired one of my most vivid childhood nightmares. Looking at her now, she resembles an evil Miriam Margolyes, if you can imagine such a thing.
