Catweazle is an adventure series that aired on ITV. The title character is an 18th century sorcerer, but not a very adept one. One day he is being chased by a troop of Norman soldiers, in an effort to escape he casts a Spell of Flight, but he as usual mis-casts and the spell shoots him into the late 20th century, 1970 to be exact. Here he meets a young boy, Edward Bennet, known locally as "Carrot", who befriends him, and generally tries to keep him out of trouble. Catweazle lives in Castle Saburac, a local castle, with his familiar - a toad called Touchwood, until he can figure out a way to get back to his own time.
