Wolfblood FAQ

Welcome to the new updated Wolfblood FAQ! Let’s get straight into the questions…

Will there be a fourth season?

Yes, CBBC have just confirmed that there will be a fourth season. Obviously we have a lot of contractual stuff, and a lot of time in the writers room,  before we can announce any specifics about cast, filming dates, transmission dates, or indeed anything else – but as soon as I have more details, I’ll update the FAQ.

So basically, if you have a question about the fourth season and the answer isn’t on the FAQ yet, then I don’t know yet!  :)

The one thing I can confirm is the writing team. Wolfblood veterans Sophie Petzal and Neil Jones will be returning, and we’ll be joined by new arrivals Furquan Akhtar and Matt Sinclair. I’ll be writing four episodes, and everyone else two each, giving us a twelve episode season this year.

Will Aimee Kelly return to season four? What about the rest of the cast, will they still be in the show?

Aimee Kelly has already said she’s too busy at college to return to the show. (And since many people have asked – no, we won’t recast the role. That’s never convincing. We’ll simply continue without the character of Maddy.)

As for the rest of the cast, we don’t know yet. We’ll  make an announcement as soon as we know.

How many seasons will there be?

CBBC makes a decision about whether to commission a new season after each season has been shown in the UK. This means we have no idea how long the show will run for.

Why do you make thirteen episodes a season, when shows on other channels make more?

Thirteen episodes per season is the usual number for CBBC programmes. It’s also as many as we have time, and money, to make each year!

I live in [insert name of country], when will I be able to see Wolfblood?

There’s no point in contacting me to ask about transmission dates for your country, because that’s not part of my job. I often don’t know the show’s on in any given country until after it’s begun showing.

If you know which channel it’s going to be on in your country (in many countries, it will be the Disney Channel),  you’re much more likely to get an accurate answer from the channel than from me. So contact them directly, and they should be able to give you an answer.

And the more people who contact the channel about Wolfblood, thus proving it has lots of fans, the more likely they are to keep showing it!

Where can I watch Wolfblood online?

If you live in the UK, you can watch episodes on the BBC’s iPlayer service. They’re usually available for at least a week after transmission, sometimes longer.

If you live outside the UK, I’m afraid iPlayer won’t work for you, and you’ll have to wait for the show to be shown by your local broadcaster. In the US, individual episodes are available to buy on iTunes, and on US Netflix.

Any Wolfblood episodes copied to YouTube or similar services will be removed and the poster’s account terminated, so be sensible, don’t take the risk…

But why shouldn’t I watch pirated copes of Wolfblood online? No harm done, right?

Wrong. Completely and utterly wrong.

In order to make future seasons of Wolfblood, we need the money that Disney and other broadcasters pay us for the rights to show the current seasons. If people can watch pirated copies on the web, they won’t watch it when it’s on TV, meaning the viewing figures go down and the broadcasters won’t buy it any more – so there’ll be no more money for us to make new episodes. And that means no more Wolfblood, ever.

Even if you claim you’re going to watch the show online and when it’s on TV, the availability of pirated copies will put broadcasters off buying those seasons in the first place. No broadcaster wants to pay money for something that’s already been splashed all over the internet.

So, if you actually care about Wolfblood, you should be avoiding people who illegally post it on the internet, not supporting them.

Where can I find out who plays which roles/who wrote or directed an episode/ who the designer or composer or DOP etc is?

Best place for finding out about the cast and crew of any film or TV show is imdb.com. Everyone involved with Wolfblood to date is listed at

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2321596/fullcredits?ref_=tt_ov_st_sm

Which awards has Wolfblood been nominated for/ won?

Wolfblood won the Royal Television Society award for Best Children’s Drama in 2013 (and was nominated again in 2014). At the Children’s BAFTAs, Bobby Lockwood won Best Performer in 2013, and I won Best Writer in 2014.

It has also been nominated for a RTS North-East award, a Broadcast award, the Prix Jeunesse, a Banff Television Festival award and four other Children’s BAFTAs in 2013 and 2014.

What is the theme song from Wolfblood? Can I buy the soundtrack?

It’s A Promise That I Keep, music by Andy Price, lyrics Klause White, performed by Lisa Knapp. The soundtrack isn’t available to buy yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that changed soon…

Do you use real wolves when filming the show?

No. The wolves are computer-animated by our effects company, Trixter.

Will there be a DVD release? 

At the moment, there are two sets of DVD releases:

Season one, two and three DVDs have been released in Germany, and are available in many other countries via Amazon and other online retailers. They can be played with the original English-language soundtrack (original actors’ voices, music, etc), as well as in a dubbed German-language version. Check your DVD player can play a Region 2 disc before ordering!

And all three seasons are available on DVD in the US, available from all the usual retailers. Again, this is available to ship to other countries from Amazon and other online retailers. Check your DVD player can play a Region 1 disc before ordering!

A UK DVD release for all the seasons will hopefully happen eventually, but I don’t have any details on when yet.

What about merchandise?

A range of merchandise is slowly being rolled out. Here’s a summary of what’s available so far:

A one-off Wolfblood magazine was released in October 2015. You can still order copies, for delivery to the UK or overseas, from

http://titan.subscribeonline.co.uk/Products/totally

Redbubble have a single (unofficial) T-shirt design at

http://www.redbubble.com/people/baubabee/works/12560451-wolfblood-thing?p=t-shirt

Wolfblood posters are available from a number of online poster retailers. Google “Wolfblood poster” and you’ll get plenty of options.

Other Wolfblood merchandise is currently being considered. Once I have more information, I’ll update the FAQ. I expect this merchandise will be available by mail order to other countries too – but until we know which retailers will be stocking it, we just don’t know.

Will there ever be Wolfblood books?

We’ve just signed a contract with a publishing company to produce novelisations (book versions of the TV episodes) and other Wolfblood books. As soon as I have more information about what and when, I’ll update this section.

Will there ever be a Wolfblood movie?

There has been some discussion of a movie, but so far, there are no firm plans for one. If that changes, I’ll update the FAQ. (And if you’re eager to see a Wolfblood movie, the best people to ask for one are CBBC, not me. I’m already convinced!)

Where can I send fan mail to the cast?

If you send it to  [Actor’s name], Wolfblood, CBBC, Bridge House, BBC MediaCity UK, Salford, M50 2QH,  it will be passed on to them from there. Alternatively, you could probably find out their agent on Google and send it to the agent’s office – it might well reach them faster that way.

How did you come up with the idea for Wolfblood, and how did it get commissioned?

I speak at length about that here:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/writersroom/posts/Wolfblood

How long does it take to write an episode of Wolfblood?

Hard to say – writers are often working on several different  projects at once – but probably around four to six weeks from beginning to end.

How can I audition to be in Wolfblood? or appear as an extra? 

Realistically, you need to have previous acting experience, and an agent, to have a chance of appearing in Wolfblood (or any other TV show). Shooting takes place on a very tight schedule and a very limited budget, and we have to be sure that everyone we employ knows their job and can do it with the minimum of supervision. And yes, that does make life hard for young actors starting out, but we have to do what’s best for the show…

If you have an agent, they’ll know how to arrange an audition for you. If not, your first task is to get an agent! And remember, acting is a long game, and setting your heart on appearing in one particular show probably isn’t the way to go. Concentrate instead on creating a career for yourself, not just getting this one job.

Please note – I get a lot of messages from people telling me at great length how brilliant they are and what their drama teacher says about them and how many plays they’ve been in… I’m sorry, but you’re telling the wrong person. I don’t make the casting decisions. That’s the job of the casting director, and I stand back and let them do their job.

Okay, but I’m interested in a long-term career as an actor – do you have any advice?

Well, obviously this isn’t my field, but I’ll tell you what little I know.  A local theatre group or Saturday drama school is a good place to get experience, and sometimes, to get scouted for local professional productions. Many TV companies talent-spot at local drama schools and youth theatres too – and you’ll also be learning the craft of acting, which is every bit as important as natural talent.

Attending drama school or taking a degree in Drama or English may be useful, but it’s not a requirement. The main advantage of full-time study is experience and making contacts. After that, you’ll begin the usual struggle to get noticed – firstly by an agent, then by producers.

Acting is an incredibly competitive and unpredictable business. Ninety percent of students who take a drama degree don’t end up working directly in arts or media. At any given moment, eighty-five percent of professional actors are unemployed. If you’re going to succeed, you’ll need determination and luck as well as talent. But if you’re really determined, go for it! A lot of people told me I’d never succeed as a writer, and look how that turned out…

I’m interested in writing for TV: can I read one of the Wolfblood scripts?

The script for season 1 episode 10, The Call Of The Wild,  is available to download from the BBC’s writersroom website: go to

http://www.bbc.co.uk/writersroom/scripts/wolfblood-s1-ep10

Writersroom also has a lot of great information, inspiring stories and details of writing competitions and opportunities, so it’s a good place to get started writing.

I’m a writer – how would I go about getting a job writing Wolfblood?

If you’re an experienced writer with previous TV or film credits, get your agent to contact CBBC in the usual way.

If you don’t have an agent or previous experience, your best way to get noticed is via BBC Writers Room, who hold  ‘open calls’ for scripts by new writers every few months. If you send in your script and they like it, they might recommend you to write for Wolfblood (or some other show). Follow the directions on their site http://www.bbc.co.uk/writersroom

How does an episode of Wolfblood get written? What’s the process?

Check out this post

https://debbiemoon.wordpress.com/2013/02/05/how-a-wolfblood-script-is-written/

I have ideas for episodes/ plot lines you could use in future seasons/ Wolfblood fan fiction: can I send them to you? 

I’ve tried being polite about this, and people are ignoring it, so let me make this very clear. YOU MUST NOT SEND ME PLOT IDEAS, SUGGESTIONS, OR EVEN WOLFBLOOD FAN FICTION. EVER. If people keep doing so, I will have to close down this site.

Writers and production companies have to be very careful that they don’t lay themselves open to accusations of stealing ideas. There have been cases with other shows where fans have sued the show for ‘stealing’ ideas from their fan fiction, or episode ideas they’ve sent in without being asked. The best defence we have have against that is never to read any ideas submitted by anyone outside the show.

So none of us are allowed to read any suggestions, ideas, fan fiction or anything related to Wolfblood. It doesn’t matter if you promise not to sue – we still can’t read it. It doesn’t matter if you say it’s just for fun – we still can’t read it. It doesn’t matter what you say – we still can’t read it! So please don’t send anything, via this blog or anywhere else.

How long does it take to film an episode of Wolfblood?

That’s hard to answer, because we don’t start at the beginning and work to the end: all the scenes in one location are filmed first, then all the scenes in another, and so on.

If we’re filming in a location – say, in the school canteen – we’ll shoot the canteen-based scenes from two or three different episodes in the same day, to save time. The most time-comsuming (and therefore expensive) part of filming is moving people and equipment from location to location, so we arrange filming so we move as little as possible.

At a guess, it takes between seven and nine working days to shoot an episode, depending on how many moves between locations, how many stunts, and how many complicated scenes there are.

Where is Wolfblood filmed?

The village we use as Stoneybridge is Blanchlands, in Northumbria. The school, the woods, and most of the other locations are within a few miles of there, and city locations (like those in ‘Eolas’) are in nearby Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.

What’s the song used in [insert name of episode]?

Music is chosen by the sound editing department, who know a lot more about all kinds of music than I do! And the instrumental music in the show is written for the show by composer Andy Price.

How do you do the yellow eyes?

Mostly contact lenses, sometimes CGI (when we actually see them change).

What’s your favourite episode? Your favourite character?

People keep asking me these questions, and they’re impossible to answer. When you write something, no part of it, no individual character, is your favourite. You love every part of it for different reasons.

Why is Doctor Whitewood played by a different actor in season three?

The actress who played Doctor Whitewood in season two wasn’t available for the filming of season three, so we had to re-cast.

What happens to the characters’ clothes when they transform?

CBBC rules forbid us to show the characters naked, or even imply that they’re naked offscreen. So we have to pretend that the clothes somehow vanish with them and then reappear. Of course it makes no sense, but we have no other option.

Do you ever write something for Wolfblood, look at it and think, ‘Oh wait, this is a children’s programme… I can’t write that.’?

We’re all aware of the things that are definitely forbidden: killing, explicit violence, sexual content other than an occasional kiss, etc. But actually, you can tackle most subjects on children’s TV if you frame them in the right way. In season one, we dealt with the care system, verbally abusive parents, cheating in exams, kidnapping, theft, and Shannon being wrongly been sent to a psychologist, all of which is pretty heavy stuff. It’s often a matter of the way you tackle the subject, not what the subject is…

If you had the chance to become a wolfblood, would you?

Interesting question. It would be nice to be athletic, and the sight and hearing would be useful. On the other hand, I’m really bad at keeping secrets – so I’d better say no…

What about if you had to choose between being a wolfblood or a vampire?

Definitely Wolfbloods! Vampires are addicts. They have no choices in life. Wolfbloods choose every moment how they balance their wolf-self and their human self, and that’s far more interesting…

If you were a wolfblood, would you want to be tame or wild?

Good question! As much I love wandering around in the countryside, I think I’d have to go for ‘tame’ in the end. I couldn’t do without a bath and a nice comfy bed!

I was wondering how Maddy’s parents met? And where do you imagine other wolfbloods meeting each other in general?

I would think settled Wolfbloods find ways to meet up – secret events, perhaps? Every community has its big events and rituals. As for how Daniel and Emma met… well, maybe one day we’ll find out!

Do you believe in people transforming into wolves/werewolves?

I believe in things we have evidence for, and so far, there’s no evidence for werewolves or anything like them. However, the idea is a great way to explore the dark side that we all have, and how we choose to deal with it…

I’ve noticed that Maddy and other characters often say ‘us’ instead of ‘me’. Is that the local dialect?

Yes, in the Northumbria/ Newcastle area, it’s perfectly normal to use ‘us’ instead of ‘me’.

What’s the language spoken by the wild wolfbloods?

That’s Welsh. This particular wild pack came originally from Wales, but were disturbed by human activity and relocated somewhere north of Stoneybridge  (probably somewhere in the Highlands of Scotland, but wild Wolfbloods aren’t exactly experts in geography…)

 

My question isn’t answered here!

If your question really isn’t answered here, then PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY before posting your question below.

– DO state your question clearly and simply. I get a lot of vague questions like  “When will it show here?”  (“It” being which season? “Here” being where?)  So try to state your question clearly and briefly…

– DON’T repost your question if it doesn’t appear immediately. All comments to this site have to be moderated by me, and if I’m busy, I may not do that for several hours.

– DON’T ASK A QUESTION THAT’S ALREADY ANSWERED IN THE FAQ. You’re just wasting my time, and I’ll probably delete it unanswered.

– DON’T ask what’s going to happen in upcoming episodes. The only response you will ever get is  “no spoilers”.

– DON’T ask me to find information for you when you can find it for yourself. You want to know if a cast member is on Facebook? Go look on Facebook. You want to know how much a Wolfblood episode is on iTunes? Go look on iTunes.

– DO be realistic about whether I can actually do what you’re asking (let alone whether I should!)  I’ve had people ask me to get them an acting agent, help them direct their first movie, help them get their novel published, and even get them a date with a member of the cast – none of which I can do!

Bearing all of that in mind, feel free to leave your question in the comments section below, and I’ll answer it as soon as I can…

    I know this isn’t your decision/area of expertise, and it would be left with the editing crew for this part, but I was wondering if you could, I don’t know, mention it to someone who can do something? This isn’t a plot line/idea so I don’t think you’ll have any problem reading it legally.

    I was disappointed several times in the past 3 seasons by the ‘previously’ and ‘next time’ parts. Just like many shows recently not just wolfblood, but some of wolfblood’s were quite bad… The previously bit isn’t too bad, but it tells you exactly who is going to be in that episode because of what they show and that can give away some pretty big things… the worst bit is the ‘next part’ they seem to end the suspense and kill cliffhangers by telling us what happens in the next one, not even being cryptic about it. Like when Rhydian turned around and saw Gerwyn in the third season. It was all like woah who’s that and then the ‘next time’ bit immediately had him going ‘I’m your dad’ and then Rhydian calling him dad in a bunch of places which immediately showed that they had proven it/accepted it and didn’t even leave any room for doubt. Since that was the biggest focus/twist in the next episode, it would have been nice to have to wait for it .-.

    Also, when Rhydian’s mobile went off when they left Mr Jeffries’ office my sister and I were like OMG IS IT MADDY?! HAS SHE REACHED CANADA? but then next time went ‘hello Rhydian, I’m back’ even though Maddy obviously wasn’t coming back, we didn’t know that at the time so it would have been a great thing to mull over and think of all the possibilities etc.

    You’ll probably say that you can’t do anything about it, but if there is anything, I would be really grateful if this was taken into account because it’s a shame to be like ‘OMG WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN?!’ (because those moments are fantastic) and then have it spoiled like two second later when it decides that hang on, we have a couple more seconds of the show left…

    I’m so so happy that there’s going to be a season four, I hope we see at least a handful of the old characters because I love them so much but I know whatever you come up with will be amazinggg ^_^ I can’t wait :D

    P.S. did you tell someone that it definitely wouldn’t be out until Winter at least a couple of months ago? What’s the earliest it could possibly release now (although I get that it probably wouldn’t be released the earliest possible because that would cause rushing and probably a higher budget)? Next Spring?

    • debbiemoon says:

      You’re right, of course: the ‘previously’ and ‘next time’ segments are not something I have anything to do with. What I will say is: when selling the next episode to a young audience, it’s felt that giving them something definite to look forward to works better than leaving them wondering what’s going to happen next…

      I think we can assume the show won’t be on screens in September, but we’re still talking about the schedule at the moment…

      • person says:

        can you try persuading Aimee Kelly to coma back to show because the show is just really different without her and I miss her so much. Also is Bobby Lockwood going to be is season 4 because at the end of season 3, he was at Canada so I going to go back?

      • debbiemoon says:

        All your questions are already answered in the FAQ.

      • person says:

        heh sorry for all the errors. I was kinda in a rush. vvv

    • Clair says:

      Wolfblood season four will be in September😀😁😂

  2. Clair says:

    Love wolfblood so much

  3. Laura says:

    Hello Debbie
    Do you know why this year they are only making 12 episodes?
    As it just seems strange that previously there were 13 episodes and now there are only going to be 12
    Thanks

  4. SerbianWolfbloodLover says:

    Hello Debby!
    I just want to thank you for this icredible show.Serbia loves it!

    i was wondering where are filmed the scense with the house of the Smiths
    espesialy the garden

  6. Mai says:

    I live in Florida, USA and I’m so happy Netflix had this show! One of the best show’s I’ve watched and I love everything about it. The storyline is amazing and the characters are perfect. I’ve been coming back here often to see if season 4 would be back and I’m soooo happy it will be returning!! Although, I’m sure it will be over a year until I’m able to see it here in America but I’m sure it’s worth the wait. Really disappointed that Aimee won’t return, she was such a great lead character and so important to the show. I guess she probably didn’t realize how big the show would become when she took a major role. But I’m glad she’s following her heart in education. So excited for Wolfblood season 4!! :)

  7. Elizabeth Mojardin says:

    I LOVE the show and I live in the United States of America it’s the only thing I think about 24/7 and i really want aimee back in season 4 I’m about to rematch all three seasons it took me one and a half days to finish all three seasons

  8. Alex says:

    Hi Debbie I was woundering why season 4 will only have 12 and will wolfblood have there own picture book

    • debbiemoon says:

      Because that’s what CBBC wants this time.
      Books – that’s up to the publishing company. I’m sure they’ll announce everything when they’re ready.

  9. Amelia says:

    Because wolfbloods can heal do they not get things like acne? Also are they sociable like real wolves?
    Thanks a lot. I’m really looking forward to the next season of wolfblood.

  10. Scott says:

    I’m from the United States and I said in an earlier post how much I have enjoyed the first three seasons of the Wolfblood series. I’m sure with writing the series, that it’s simply not possible to go into great detail about certain aspects of Wolfblood. If you are able to produce books in the future, as you’ve stated in your FAQ above, I know I’d love to see a Wolfblood Encyclopedia that has information about the characters and other tidbits about Wolfblood history in it. Thanks!

  11. Alex says:

    Hi Debbie I know you can’t tell me who’s coming back for a season four and who isn’t but do you know who will be coming back yet

  12. George says:

    Did you get the name cerberus from Operation Cerberus, which was in the Second World War? Why did you decide to use that name as well?

  13. Ryan says:

    Also love your work Wolfblood is such an outstanding show.

  14. Lizzy says:

    Hi Debbie :)

    I was just wondering, with the solar eclipse happening this week, whether you’ve ever thought into what the effect of a solar eclipse would be on wolfbloods? With the lunar eclipse having such unusual effects on them (and so do other celestial events like the comet) I was wondering whether it’d be like the opposite? or if it’d still just effect them like a no moon because that’s technically what it is? Would they be forced to change into wolf form?

    Also, have you ever thought into/do you know the effects of moons like blue moons and super moons on them? If there is any effect at all that is, as those are a lot more common…

    • debbiemoon says:

      The blue moon is just an atmospheric phenomena, so I doubt that would have any effect. Super moons and solar eclipses would probably have some effect, though. Perhaps we’ll explore that in season four!

    • Marie says:

      I would expect that blue moons wouldn’t have any affect on because nothing is different about the lunar cycle. It’s just caused by our human calendars.

      I would think that with a super moon, they would stay transformed longer or be more in touch with their wolf side.

      A solar eclipse? Maybe it would have similar effects but even worse than dark moon.

      Just my thoughts ^_^ Love the questions Lizzy XD.

  15. krebstarr says:

    I’m a fan from Michigan in the US. I’m probably 30 or 35 years older than your target audience but I watched one episode on Netflix on vacation and just devoured the rest of the three seasons. I appreciate how, although respecting the youth of the target audience, this is a smart show with a ton of heart and spirit. My wife and son don’t care too much for genre entertainment but I am reveling in watching the shows again with my 10 year old daughter. Thanks for that!!

  16. KJJ says:

    Do you think it will take half a year, a year, one and a half years or two years for the next series to come out? Also, is your real name Debbie Moon or is it a stage name. If it’s your real name, then it’s a pretty cool name, especially with the whole Moon – Wolfblood thing

  17. KJJ says:

    Also – sorry – do you think it’s possible that all of the main characters actors/actresses would leave the show? If they did, would you still be able to carry on the show?

    • debbiemoon says:

      Wolfblood is about a world, rather than about specific individuals, so if CBBC still wanted the show, I daresay we’d find a way to keep it going. But we’ll see…

  18. ambsjackson says:

    In series 2, had Maddy overcome her “addiction” to Eolas or gained more control over its strength on her? Obviously because we saw her use it in Total Eclipse Of The Moon, I assumed that she’d started using it or only used it in situations she’s really need to.

  19. Joe says:

    Hello :)

    So I have really grown up with Wolfblood and now I am in year 11. I just loved the concept and I was wondering if world building was something that would happen in Season 4.

    Would we see outside the Northen-ish world, maybe see a different place or what other wolfs are doing to cope in other environments such as cities or do many Wolfbloods restrain from moving away from the nature and wilderness?

    Thanks.

    • debbiemoon says:

      As always – no spoilers!

      • Joe says:

        That’s cool. I can’t wait to see what you are doing to create with a new series.

        Thank you,

      • Joe says:

        Also, (sorry for a lot of messages)

        do you think you will return writing for the Sparticle Mystery? I know the story and the plot is somewhat overused I really enjoyed the episodes you wrote compared to the rest of the series.

        Thanks,

  20. Sophie says:

    Hello,
    I am a young aspiring actress. I haven’t had much acting experience in the past but I have been waiting and waiting to try and find auditions for Wolfblood Season 4. But I never found any, now that it has been confirmed there will be a Season 4 can I audition at all?

  21. ben hughes says:

    Hi Debbie I’m just wondering do u need new locations to shoot

  22. Noelle Geron says:

    Im not sure when the trailers for wolfblood are released but i was wondering if there will a trailer for season four? If so do u know when it will be released (not exact dates just somthing like after its done filming or before i its released….. somthing like that)

  23. Sophie says:

    Hi, [sorry for bothering you again], just wondering if you know ANYTHING about the auditions?
    i.e; where they’ll be held, what time they’ll be at, what date??

    • debbiemoon says:

      As with any television job, there are no set time and dates for auditions. If the casting directors are interested in you, they’ll arrange matters with your agent.
      If you have any more questions about how auditions work, can I suggest you ask your agent? I’m a writer, not an actor, and this is outside my area of expertise.

  24. Wb says:

    What happened to Aran and meinirs parents?
    Sorry for being a little pedantic but wild wolfbloods know how to hug and what it means- and in the human world hugging is also commonly used, yet high fives or hand shakes aren’t known to wild wolfbloods(well alrics former pack)- how come they know how to hug but not to greet by shaking hands? Surely one is just as important as the other?

    • debbiemoon says:

      Their parents are still with the pack.
      Most mammals hug – or at least, snuggle together – as a social bonding ritual. But shaking hands evolved from the invention of weapons, and the need to show your weapon hand is empty and you come in peace. So a society that doesn’t fight with weapons would never invent shaking hands.

        Wow. Didn’t know that. Did u have to reaserach wolf and other animal to create this series. Also have u ever had to change an episode because of cbbc rules? If so were u happy with the changes or not? (Sorry if u cant answer the last one because of spoilers)

      • debbiemoon says:

        Yes, we did a lot of research.
        We have to make changes now and then, but they’re mostly minor things – how we show something, rather than whether we do it or not. So we find a compromise that everyone is happy with.

    This might be a long shot because I’m not sure if you’ll really know, but I just wondered if you know whether the Europe DVD releases (the ones available for import to the UK) are the full length episodes, or if they’re the slightly cut down versions from Disney/Netflix?

    In lone wolf maddy sorta confront rhysian saying if her parents get a whiff of rhydian but surely after he finds out him and maddy are the same he’d be able to work out her parents are wolfbloods yet he asked if mads parents were like them- why didn’t he work it out?

    • debbiemoon says:

      Rhydian has never met another Wolfblood. He had no idea other Wolrbloods exist. So how could he know whether a Wolfblood automatically has Wolfblood parents, or whether they’re born to human parents…?

    • Noelle Geron says:

      A comment above talked about DVDs and how some were cut down episodes… what does that mean and are there any that are not cut down episode, which ones? Are the ones on netflix cut down?

      • debbiemoon says:

        CBBC shows Wolfblood with no adverts or breaks, so it shows the whole 28 minute episode. Other channels, including Disney, show it with an ad break in the middle – and to make room for the adverts, they cut a couple of minutes of scenes (usually subplots or comedy scenes that don’t affect the plot so much).
        Because the version shown on television in other countries is the basis for that country’s DVDs, the DVD versions are also cut down in this way.
        I don’t know which version Netflix shows – I can’t access US Netflix from the UK – but it’s probably the cut version.
        If there’s ever a UK DVD, that will contain uncut episodes. But there’s no sign of one yet…

      • krebstarr says:

        I’m also going to assume that the Netflix USA versions are the ‘cut-down’ ones. They list on Netflix as being 25 minutes long each which means they must be 3 minutes shorter than the original UK versions.

    This is to WB who wrote a comment about Rhydian. Debbie obviously has it right but just to further her point Rhydian also thought he got bite but he don’t remember being bite and then Maudie laughs and explains

  28. Luis says:

    Hi Debbie, between the first and the third season of many people came in on the secret of wolfblood, Rhydian because he never had the opportunity to reveal to the foster mother who he really is, even if the adoptive mother doesn’t hold a very important role.

  29. Alexia says:

    Why did Maddy and Jana high-five in S02E04 Total Eclipse of the Moon, but in S02E07 Top Dog Shannon had to teach Jana how to high five? Also, I’m a HUGE fan!

    Hello Debbie
    I was just wondering if you knew about lindisfarne before wolfblood and also does the place they stay in over night on lindisfarne actually exist?
    Thanks

  31. Scott says:

    Hi Debbie on your Twitter account you said today was a wolfblood writer room I was wondering wat happens at those meetings. Since no cast has been confirmed you couldn’t be writing episodes since you have no idea who will be in this season unless cbbc has you tight lipped about cast.

    • debbiemoon says:

      We’re discussing episode ideas and deciding who will write which episode. As for cast, we have to start work before everyone is confirmed, or we’d never get the episodes written!

  32. Brendan says:

    Will there be any new characters?

  33. George says:

    Hi Debbie, I was wondering if their were any alternative endings or different ideas for the endings of series 1 & 3

  34. Kristopher says:

    Hey I have never actually liked the vampire or other Fantisy type things, but I am always in for try out a new show, when I watched wolfblood for the first time I loved it, after watching the third episode I told my dad that he should watch it, and after that it became one of the few shows that my dad would watch that contained fantisy type creatures, but wolfbloods are more than just creatures they are people.

    • debbiemoon says:
