Jonny Lee Miller,
In this remake, William Brown remains the story concentrate of an English boy. No matter what trouble his elders, and -worse- the insufferable 'good girl' Violet Elizabeth Bott who manages to enforce here presence upon them, take to tell them what to do, when and where, William, his best friend Ginger and the whole gang of village rascals make sure the saying "boys will be boys" proves true every single mischievous time, even if it takes all their courage and lying ingenuity.

OK after hearing many comments and being criticized on POINT OF VIEW, I would like to set the record straight as to why there was NO lisp coming from the mouth of Violet E Bott....and I should know because I was her.
Had someone told me I was meant to have a lisp, I would have done but it slipped everyones mind and as I was only young and not familiar with the books, I was not to know. By the time someone remembered she was supposed to lisp, we were already several days into shooting and unable to start again.
As a result I now feel that I didn't do the part justice.
AND THAT IS WHY VIOLET DID'NT LISP
I hope those who watched it were not to disappointed
Regards T. Griffiths
