I don't know if anyone else has heard of this or is watching it. I started watching it yesterday and I can only say it appears to be a new and original series that just happens to share the title and characters's names with Enid Blyton's books.
They have changed sooo much in it! I like it though. The only way I've been able to enjoy it is NOT to think of it as Malory Towers.
It's a nice bit of escapism from covid 19 anyway. :)

Thanks for this RubyGates. There is already a thread running on the new series - perhaps a mod can combine this with that as I imagine quite a lot of people will be wanting to comment on it.

I have only watched about five minutes so far but felt much the same as you....

Unfortunately we can only merge threads in fora which we're Mods for, and no-one's a Mod for both :roll: ! Oh well.

Dearie me - admin rules raise their tiresome head even here...

One way to combine them would be for Ruby and I to repost in the earlier thread and then delete the other but I seem to remember from spam threads that doesn't work either once there are follow up posts?

It's not for me to question them, but the admin rules here are unusual, maybe? On the forum where I'm a mod, each moderator just covers the entire site.

Anyway, as for Malory Towers, yeah I noticed it on the iPlayer and watched an episode. It's always nice to see a boarding school on screen (not that common!). But TBH, I just can't stand Enid Blyton, with the possible exception of the Naughtiest Girl series.

Three mods can mod the whole board thanks Katharine.
There's no problem with having more than one thread on any topic, Cestina. It's not a rule.

Mia.
