All 19 episodes across three series of the beloved CBBC children’s TV series first broadcast from 1996-1998. Based on the books by Gillian Cross and directed by Grange Hill‘s Roger Singleton-Turner.

Terrence Hardiman (Doctor Who) stars as megalomaniac The Demon Headmaster. It’s good versus evil at St Champions school as he plans to use otherworldly hypnotic powers to take over the world!

However, he does not count on the resistance of his unruly pupils, who together form SPLAT (The Society for the Protection of our Lives Against Them), a taskforce training to resist hypnotic powers. But they will have to act fast because once the Demon Headmaster has the pupils under his power his next target is Downing Street.

As term progresses SPLAT realise their adversary is a wily and dangerous enemy. Who will come out on top? The future of St Champions School and the universe is at stake!

“I have very happy memories of working on The Demon Headmaster. And what fun to play such a megalomaniac! Their most frequent question was, “How did you do that with your eyes?” I wonder how a new generation will react?” – Terrence Hardiman on The Demon Headmaster DVD release.
