I don't know, Loopy, the fight between Steve and Johnny Clegg was quite fierce and bloody.

 :o

Yes, you're right, it was quite fierce.  I always think the Hazel episode was quite scarey too, especially for the younger watchers.

Yes, that was a pretty disturbing episode.

I always wondered why did they leave the school problems out of the TV series, they certainly did not dodge some other heavy issues and getting bullied at school seems to be an eternal problem, nowadays as well as then  >:(

I have to admire Monica's writing once again: SHE did not sugar the life of youngsters in her books, told it as it can be so often in real life. And they call the childhood the happy golden years, depends who you are talking with...

Of course Callie had a very small part in the TV series and she was the one being bullied at school in the books.  As the programme was aimed at teenagers, I think the Dora/Steve love aspect was a far more exciting storyline.   ;)

I still think they could have chosen school bullying as one episode theme, perhaps not exactly with Callie. It would be so interesting to have an interview with Tony Essex!  :)

Didn't he die quite shortly after the 3rd series was wrapped up? That might have been one reason why the film was never shot, he seemed to be the engine on many things regarding FF. Or at least I got that impression while reading Louise's site's articles.
