Hopefully the series can help repair Lee Ingleby's reputation on kids TV.

Even though he barely had any on the kids T.V market to begin with.

So Peter Capaldi is credited on Wikipedia as Kehaar.
LOL.

I honestly have doubts about this, since the edit was made by an unregistered user who had one of their edits reverted as vandalism.  Also, no references mention this, and IMDb still lists Kim Bodnia.

The same unregistered user also added Taron Egerton as El-Ahrairah, Rosamund Pike as the Black Rabbit and Sam Redford as Man.  I wouldn't trust this, but hopefully there will be several El-ahrairah stories in the miniseries...

I do love how Sam Redford is credited as "Man" and no one specifically like if you don't know who it is just credit them as a "Man".

No need for context.

The same anonymous user who added Peter Capaldi as Kehaar to Wikipedia, has removed this entry from the cast list.  All other new names remain.

Only time will tell if it is false, although it may be that it is an anonymous person. In any case I would like this production to be ready at least by the end of this year. Richard Adamas liked to see him before he died, to rest in peace.
Hopefully the WD production will not have problems. The prince rabbit protects us.  :hazel    :frith  :el-ahrairah  :el-ahrairah

I hope so as well Acacia but I can't help but feel a bit of betrayal to the fan base who love the 1978 film  :woundwort
