Worzel Gummidge 4.5 – Will the Real Aunt Sally…?

A couple of weeks ago, we watched “The Return of Dolly Clothes-Peg” and I wrote about the difficulty in finding a place for a sweet and kind character in a world as mean as this. With that in mind, this is a little bit of a retread. Another Aunt Sally shows up, and she’s gentle and polite, and that just won’t do. It’s amusing, but we’ve seen most of this before.

Connie Booth plays the new Aunt Sally in town, and I enjoyed how she moves exactly like Una Stubbs, since all Aunt Sallies should be built the same way. There is a really funny scene at the beginning of the episode, when we see each from behind, before we learn that the new one is not trouble. Worzel doesn’t understand that there are two of them, and thinks that she has somehow developed the ability to go in two directions at the same time.
