A '''witch''' was a practioner of [[magic]]al arts. The term was often primarily applied to female [[magician]]s, though not all female magicians considered themselves witches. Some cultures used the term "[[wizard]]" to refer to a male witch ([[TV]]: ''[[The Dæmons (TV story)|The Dæmons]]'') while others used witch to refer to practitioners of either gender. Less advanced cultures had a fear of witches and would sometimes mistake [[psychic power]]s or [[Clarke's Law|advanced technology]] as witchcraft.
