Storyline

Heeding the warning of a vision of their old home's destruction, a group of rabbits led by Hazel, his brother Fiver the visionary, the ever inventive doe, Blackberry, and Bigwig, a former member of their old home's military class, go in search of a new home. With the help of new found friends like Kehaar the gull and Hannah the mouse, Fiver's vision leads them to a home called Watership Down. Now, Hazel and his friends must establish their warren and protect it from the threats they face which include humans, predators, and especially the menace of a tyrannically militaristic warren led by the merciless General Woundwart.

A great series, Destroyed by people that hate different things...
9 August 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Although many would say that it doesn't even compare to the 1978 film, Personally I'd say it was better. I love the Characters it makes it hard for me to pick a favourite, Which I one of the things I love about it. Blackberry changed from Buck (Male) to Doe (Female). I love the female Blackberry and it was nice to have a Sandleford doe on the Down. This series introduced new characters, never featured in the book such as Spartina or Hickory. It also showed Redstone warren and Darkhaven warren. Characters like Hawkbit, Strawberry or Silverweed made it into the Series. Lapine was still used but I think there should have been more. I think the changes in this series were great, Remember though its only Based on the novel by Richard Adams and if it had of been the same as the film, It would have been quite boring!
