‘Malory Towers’ is a new 13-part drama based on the iconic novels by Enid Blyton, following the adventures of Darrell Rivers as she leaves home for the first time to attend an all-girls’ boarding school.
Set in post-war Britain on the sun-drenched cliffs of the Cornish coast, the series explores a nostalgic world of midnight feasts, lacrosse, pranks, a mystery ghost and lasting friendships.
The show has also been given a contemporary twist telling the story of universal experiences such as shifting cliques, FOMO, bullying, crushes, peer pressure, and self-doubt. The girls keep an eye on each other and, like a family, are forever connected by their shared experiences…
See the very talented Catherine Bailey as Miss Gale, a rival games mistress from St Hilda’s, in ‘Malory Towers’. On CBBC & BBC iPlayer from Monday 23rd March.
