Overview

We follow Mildred Hubble in her first year at Weirdsister College, a university for students of magic. Similar to her adventures at Cackle's, Mildred usually messes up, but saves the day at the end.

DVD Release

In 2007, Shock released Weirdsister College on DVD, in a boxset with Season 3 of The Worst Witch, although it is titled as "Series 4" of The Worst Witch. Shock also released box sets of Seasons 1 & 2 of The Worst Witch, and Seasons 1 & 2 of The New Worst Witch. These are all on Region 4, being released only in Australia, but playable in other reigons.

Trivia

  • The 7th episode in the series (Dr. Foster, I presume) is a reference to the quote "Dr. Livingstone, I presume." by Henry Morton Stanley.
  • The twelfth episode in the series (The Whisperer) is the only episode in the series that was marked To Be Continued...
  • Felicity Jones returns to playing Ethel Hallow, as for seasons 2 and 3 of The Worst Witch she shaped her appearance to hide the fact she is sister of winy Sybil Hallow. When she came to Weirdsister, she felt as though it was safe to change back, and resumed the appearance of Ethel Hallow of The Worst Witch season 1.
