Missing in action
« on: December 27, 2018, 06:45:45 PM »
Two characters on IMDb were advertised but don't appear to have made it into the actual series.

Spoiler: ShowHide

The first one is Scabious.  In the original book, there are two characters called Scabious.  The first dies a particularly horrible death in the original book.  The second is one of Clover's sons at the very end.  On IMDb, Luke Neal is credited as voicing Scabious, but in the official credits he is one of several people credited for "owsla".

Then, there's Haystack.  Interestingly, Lizzie Clarke is mentioned for the role in the official credits, but I can't seem to recall her being refereed to by name a single time in the entire series.

Now that you mention it... I'd completely forgotten about those two names. I guess their roles were too unimportant to be given a name??

I wonder if they were originally planned to have a bigger role to play?
