First look at Mackenzie Crook in Worzel Gummidge adaptation

The Detectorists actor will star as the scarecrow formerly portrayed by Doctor Who’s Jon Pertwee

Mackenzie Crook is a turnip-headed scarecrow in a first look at his new BBC1 adaptation of the classic children’s Worzel Gummidge books.

The Detectorists star has written two hour-long films based around the talking scarecrow, who was originally portrayed by Doctor Who actor Jon Pertwee in an ITV series that aired between 1979-81 (and was later revived for a New Zealand spin-off in 1987-89).
