Simon and the Witch

ONE OF those not-quite-toddler, not-quite-teenager programmes you’d get in the 4.20pm slot. 15 minutes of faffing about with mop-topped HUGH POLLARD as Simon, ELIZABETH SPRIGGS as the witch and JOAN SIMS as posh Lady Fox-Custard who was always being tricked by the other two. Second series also included Italian restaurant owner Valdini, played by CJ ALLEN. Opening titles had the characters lamely holding bits of card with their names on.

    The cameo by John Craven was hilarous!

    Future Tomorrow Person & Moneypenny Naomi Harris was Joyce, who was mostly there to say “Poor (character name)” whenever something bad happen to them. Jimmy often got this treatment.
