  • Samantha finds herself in story book land when Tabitha starts messing with witchcraft.

    In this first episode of the new season, we see Dick Sargent playing the role of Darrin Stephens for the first time as Dick York had to leave the series after sustaining a back injury. Dick Sargent is a much more 'gentle' Darrin, not given to looking as though he is about to implode all the time but he was a very good choice for the role and fitted in with the rest of the cast beautifully.

    Tabitha, meanwhile, is not impressed with a new baby and her jealousy makes her misbehave. As she gets older, her witchcraft improves and we find her zapping herself into the story of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' where the loud, abusive giant is soon, quite literally, brought down to size!

    Samantha has to pop into the story herself before Darrin's mother thinks she has lost her mind so that she can put everything right.
