What characters are you hoping for?
« on: October 30, 2015, 08:30:03 PM »
When/if BBC will make the new mini-series, we can expect main characters - like Hazel, Fiver or Woundwort - to show up in it. However, there will probably not be enough time to cast all characters from the book(s) or give them all speaking roles. So my question for you is this: what people are you hoping to see in the new series and why? Alternatively: are there any characters that you would like to see receiving more screen time than the book gave them? :)

I'd like to see/hear a lot more about Holly, to be honest.

If a rabbit deserves a place in the series ... definitely Bluebell. There has never appeared in the series, or the movie ...        :hawkbit

Haha, why thank you.
In all seriousness though, I would rather like to hear about the escape from the old Sandleford Warren more than anything.

Strawbery. I'd like to see the scene where Holly, Buckthorn, Silver and Strawberry are trying to convince Efrafan Council to let them ask some of Efrafan does to go to Watership Down. If I remember correctly, Strawberry made quite a speech about how animals dont sit around, devising ways to make other animals miserable and unhappy.

Yeh, when I watched the TV series I seem to remember that Strawberry only had one or two episodes and then he just seemed to vanish, a lot like Blackavar; I thought that he had an interesting story to tell and was a valuable character in the book. Why did they not keep him in?

But Strawberry had pretty much screentime in the third season of the series.
