Harriet Hogweed is an evil witch from the past.


1998 TV Series

One of the more exciting events in the castle's history was the rebellion against Baron Overblow and his defeat by Lucy Fairweather. Baron Overblow knew he was no match for Lucy Fairweather. In his desperation he hired a cunning sorceress, Harriet Hogweed. Hogweed was defeated by Lucy Fairweather in “the greatest battle this castle has ever seen”. [1]

When Ruby, Griselda and Fenella accidentally bring her back from the past in Which Witch Is Which?, she claims to be Lucy Fairweather, as does another woman who turns up. They run about the castle, duelling, which leads to it falling apart. The school is thus evacuated, with the exception of Mildred and her friends. Miss Hardbroom is about to turn Ruby, Griselda and Fenella into toads for their crimes for bringing the historical figures into the future, but Mildred steps forward and stops her. Miss Hardbroom says that Mildred will be turned into a tree forever and, just as she casts the spell, the other Lucy Fairweather steps forward and blocks the spell. Mildred and Miss Hardbroom reveal that they had together made a plan to discover the real Lucy; the real one would step forward and not allow Miss Hardbroom to punish Mildred. Then, Miss Hardbroom and Lucy Fairweather turn Harriet into a tortoise, and Miss Crotchet takes her to the Wizards.[2]
