Article focus[edit]

This article should be about the book, with a section for the TV version. Unfortunately it's now nearly a decade since I read it and I haven't got a copy at hand so I can't contribute. Rory 20:12, Sep 25, 2004 (UTC)

Cast[edit]

Is the cast accurate? It doesn't match the IMDB listing, anyway. I don't want to change it in case it refers to a different version not mentioned elsewhere in the article. 80.192.131.182 17:01, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

yes the cast is accurate but not for the imdb version, this refers to one which was released not long after the book was written but is largely forgotten now. so far as i know it hasn't been shown on tv anytime in the last few years, nor have i ever seen it on sale. maybe someone out there has more info on this version/actually has a copy of the original? in any case the john thaw version is generally considered the 'official' version.

corrected cast, the official film version (sanctioned by the author) is not the same as the more well known yet unofficial john thaw version. unsinged comment by 62.31.160.60 (talk · contribs)

Film cast[edit]

I have taken the above on trust and augmented the article. I have contacted the editor to check his source. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 12:06, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Goodnight-mister-tom.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Goodnight-mister-tom.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 16:22, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Very frustrating[edit]

Someone removed a lot of the content from this page, but it was a few edits ago, so there's little that can be done. Can anyone who goes on here try and add some external links, references, categories etc? Adaircairell (talk) 10:15, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
