think they're doing roughly 2/3rds of the book, although from what I've heard they might be bringing in a little bit from book 4, as there's a character in Series 3 who I don't remember being in the book.

Have you noted how much Isaac Hempstead-Wright has grown? He'll be even taller in Season 4 and yet in the books none of the characters age much. I wonder how they will get past that as I wouldn't want to see other actors take over their parts.

Still haven't watched it - one of the downsides of only having Sky+ in one room - but have seen several photos and yes, both he and Sansa have really grown up. At least he doesn't look so much like a girl now!

No, I meant the character which you think wasn't in book three but is featured in the TV adaptation.

I'm actually not allowed to say - privileged information! But apparently it will be a big reveal - he was in the first episode of this series.

Oh I know who you mean - rather a surprise, as the character disappears for a while only to become, well......Not sure how they are going to do this, but I am rather enjoying watching what happens.
