Simon and the Witch

Based on the children’s book of the same name by Margaret Stuart Barry, Simon and the Witch was broadcast in 1987 and ran for 25 episodes. It starred Elizabeth Spriggs as the Witch, and Hugh Pollard as Simon.

There are many adventures through the episodes, all of which are chapters from the book,  at one point the witch teaches Simon how to turn the school gardener into a frog, but forgets how to turn him back. She eventually remembers the spell, and turns the gardener into a man again, claiming privately she never forgot the spell at all. In chapter two, The Lost Magic Wand, the witch loses her wand so Simon takes her to the police station where the witch becomes fascinated with Constable Scruff’s uniform, and so becomes a policewoman. The three eventually find the witch’s wand, which has been stolen by two thieves who used it as a poker for their fire.
