The Castlist

The amount of voice over actors used in Watership Down, both celebrity and regular, was huge. By going through every episode in detail, and researching on the net, I aim to provide what must be the most complete Cast List available. As far as I know, these are all correct (some of it does involve educated guessing), but if you spot any mistakes, or notice there's a character missing, let me know. Currently, the voices for the main characters only covers those from the first two series. There were several changes for series 3 (eg Hazel) which will require some more effort to successfully document.

The German cast list is also now on the site. These all come from the credits off the DVD version of Series 3, so whether or not there have been any major voiceover changes from the first 2 series, I dont know. A huge thanks to Befrafa who emailed me this list, as well as pointing out a few minor mistakes with the English spellings, and lots of extra English characters. Thanks also to Sascha who alerted me to a site with some of the German voiceover actors listed.

Most recently, I've added the cast list from the Dutch version of Watership Down. The cast list for this was once again provided by Befrafa, and can be found on the DVDs available from the Netherlands for those interested. =:)
