CBBC has brought forward transmission of its new 13-part drama Malory Towers following the coronavirus outbreak.

The entire series, based on Enid Blyton’s iconic novels, will drop onto BBC iPlayer today and go on the CBBC channel in April.

Malory Towers follows the adventures of Darrell Rivers as she leaves home for the first time to attend an all-girls’ boarding school.

The series is set in post-war Britain on the sun-drenched cliffs of the Cornish coast and explores a nostalgic world of midnight feasts, lacrosse, pranks, a mystery ghost and lasting friendships.

The first episode airs on CBBC at 5.30pm on 6th April. The series has been made for CBBC by King Bert Productions and WildBrain in association with Family Channel. It has been adapted for television by Rachel Flowerday and Sasha Hails.
