Witch Wood is a 1927 novel written by the Scots author and politician John Buchan. Set in the 17th century, it revolves around a group of witches, and according to the historian Ronald Hutton, was based upon the Witch-cult hypothesis of the anthropologist Margaret Murray. It was subsequently adapted into a 4-part BBC television series in 1964.
In the The Prisoner episode The Girl Who Was Death, Number Six is lured to a strange town which is apparently called "Witch Wood".
