The Demon Headmaster

Look into our eyes…

For this episode, we’re heading back to the ‘90s with a ‘splat’, as we fall back under the spell of The Demon Headmaster, investigating the vintage CBBC series, the recent reboot and the books that inspired them both.

Morgan teaches Tom all about the classic kids’ show that is still rather terrifying, and share our own harrowing stories of teachers. Tom’s broken ruler story will send shivers down your spine…

Based on the series of books by Gillian Cross, The Demon Headmaster ran on CBBC from 1996 to 1998. It starred Terrence Hardiman in the title role, becoming one of the most feared TV characters for 90s kids everywhere.

It was brought back as a sequel series in 2019, with Hardiman returning in later episodes, much to the joy of total nerds like us.

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
