Never read the books but this looks interesting.

I tried Googling that, but couldn't find any corroboration. And that beat should be so simple to film, that even if they did say that, having seen their extremely tame bear fight, I'd suspect they were lying, and cut it because they found it too upsetting.
As for HBO's influence on future seasons, I wouldn't count on that. It's been reported that HBO, having been bought by Time-Warner, is desperate for content, so I doubt they'd be too fussed about tone and intensity.
Gaith said:I mean... it's a dead fish. It's a visual. It should work better on screen than the page, and "didn't quite work for a number of reasons" could totally be a polite way of saying "we/our BBC overlords were afraid of upsetting kids." I also read that when Lyra approaches Iofur in his palace, they omitted his rag doll prop daemon?! How inept can one possibly be?!
